BENEFIT IN AKRON

This past Thursday evening the band I sing with, "Country Mile" played at a benefit, held at the Dusty Armadillo in Akron for The Akron Criminal Justice Association.  The other singer in my band is a senior at Akron and a member of the Criminal Justice Assn. so she arranged the gig at the "Dusty" which I just learned is the biggest country bar in Ohio.  It was a good time for a great cause with some wonderful friends.

 

The benefit was for a rape crisis fund, so she and all of us were happy to learn that they sold over 100 tickets for the event where the money earned goes to the fund.  The show was amazing and the stage we played on was huge with the best sound system I've heard.  There was line dancing, and heel clicking all night while we sang everything from Miranda Lambert to The Rolling Stones and Lady Gaga.  We finally decided to quit after 1am but I could've played all night it was a blast.  However, I'm still trying to figure out where you'd see a "dusty armadillo" in NE Ohio....
