With proceeds going to Harvesters, the fifth annual Harvest the Blues benefit will feature Levee Town, Shannon & the Rhythm Kings, Sam and the Damned Band, Lonesome Hank & the Heartaches, Doghouse Daddies and Little Eva & the Works.

Also bringing in the dollars for the Harvesters will be an auction featuring a guest DJ spot on KKFI, an autographed Levee Town picture, free passes to Knuckleheads and other various items donated by the Kansas City Blues Society.

The show goes from noon until 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 21 and the admission is either a $5 donation or ten non-perishable food items (not necessarily of those types listed above). Doors open at 11:30 a.m.


I bet your pops has never been to Knuckleheads.
