Lowcountry Blues Benefit For Paul Walls Tonight

I have often written here about what a wonderful community the Lowcountry Blues Club is.  The support, friendship and comaraderie that exists among its members is an amazing thing.  Tonight, we have a chance to express that in an deeper way.

As you probably heard, Paul Walls (drummer for the Louie D Project) recently lost his one-year old son. The boy went into surgery and never woke up. While most parents of one-year old children are worried about their child learning to walk without falling into things, Paul is faced with the devastation of loss and the reality of having to pay costly funeral expenses.

While it’s true that there may seem to be a number of benefits wrestling for our time and money, this one feels different. As a parent, I can’t imagine having to face what Paul is going through. If you don’t know Paul, The City Paper printed a fantastic feature story on him about two years ago:

Come to the Jam tonight at Home Team BBQ in West Ashley and show your support. Offer a dollar or whatever you can. If you can do more or know of someone who can, contact J.R. Getches.

Thank you.
