When Danny Cox, a local blues artist, had his home destroyed by a fire, a host of other local musicians came together to host several benefit concerts to rebuild the folk and blues vocalist's home. The last benefit is called "Raise the Roof," and it's going to help Cox and his family -- you guessed it -- build a roof for his home.
Here's what the press release says:
The proceeds will be used to put a roof on the home he and his sons have been building, one wall at a time, to replace the Cox family home destroyed by fire in 2008.
Cox, a musician and actor, invested an additional $20,000 of his own money in the effort. Now the only thing left to finish before the family can move in is the roof, which will cost at least $5,000 in materials. Danny and his sons will do the labor.
"Raise the Roof" will feature Horace Washington, Max Groove, Bob Walkenhorst, Jeff Porter, Byrd Fleming, Valerie Mackey, Terry Bohner and Peter Snoderly, and of course, Danny Cox.
It's on Saturday, September 25, at the H & R Block City Stage at Union Station. The cost is $25. Click here for more information.
