Slide1Amuse Bouche: Benefit for Dana Robbins (Nashville, TN)

Our Amuse Bouche features a musical recap of an amazing event held for Dana Robbins at 3rd & Lindsley, in Nashville. Dana has played saxwith everyone from Frank Zappa, Chaka Kahn, Delbert McClinton and more. Her friends turned out in amazing numbers to show support and to raise money for her battle with cancer, packing one of the finest music venues in Nashville last Wednesday night.
I was honored to be asked to MC the event, and our auctions alone brought in buckets of money – thank you all for a memorable time, and Dana the pleasure was mine.
Look for photos from the event soon, and see our Facebook page for some video shot there as well as a few fotos.
