The Valentine shindig went really well. We had a great crowd and dinner was awesome too. Many thanks to the Country Troubadours for donating their time, talent, and treasure to further our outreach efforts. These are generous men who are extremely talented. All who attended this benefit show had a nice time.


Please support live music.
