Jimmie Meade Benefit 

Sunday, January 25, 1-11 p.m, at B.B.'s Lawnside Bar-B-Q.

Kansas City's blues community is rallying to benefit Levee Town harmonica player Jimmie Meade, who was severely injured in a car accident on November 26. Meade, a curly-haired Chicago native, grew up emulating the likes of Little Walter while gigging for various blues, bluegrass and jazz bands before joining Kansas City's Levee Town. He suffered critical injuries in the accident and had to have one leg amputated below the knee. He is still hospitalized at KU Medical Center. Playing for his benefit are the other members of Levee Town, the band with the most restrained name among six other acts, including Lonesome Hank and the Heartaches, Lee McBee and the Confessors and Cotton Candy and So Many Men.
