A memorial for the late trumpeter/vocalist Stacy Rowles, who died last October from complications following a car accident, will be held this Sunday, January 10 in the auditorium of the Musicians Union Local 47 (817 Vine St, Hollywood, CA, 818-986-8733).
The ever-growing list of musicians slated to perform includes David Angel, Joe LaBarbera, Pete & Linda Christlieb, Gary Foster, Sandy Graham, Marty Harris, Karen Hernandez, Kendall Kay, Dave Koonse, Paul Kriebich, Sydney Lehman, Mike Melvoin, Roger Neumann, Darek Oles, Brian O'Rourke, Mike Peak, Charlie & Sandi Shoemaker, Linda Small, VR & Putter Smith and Jimmy Spencer. The memorial begins at 11am and goes until around 4pm. Donations will be accepted to further the effort to archive the musical legacy of the Rowles family. There will also be a food and beverage buffet. From the invite: "We'll be serving tri-tip and chicken with beer, wine and softer things at the bar. If you make a dish you are proud of, you are welcome to bring a taste for the table. One of the rules of the house when Stacy entertained was 'nobody leaves hungry', and we never did!" (Thanks to blog bud Doug Ramsey for the forward.)
