BENEFIT SHOW FOR REED RILEY >>>
National darling Vicci Martinez returns to her hometown of Tacoma Sunday to play a benefit show for her former manager, Reed Riley. Apparently, Riley needs triple bypass surgery and it's not a cheap procedure. Tickets are $25 and go on sale at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 29 on Jazzbones' website. Riley posted a message of appreciation on his Facebook.
VICCI MARTINEZ HAS A HEART OF GOLD !!
I can't tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am right now as I announce a special acoustic concert, on my behalf, by Vicci this Sunday night at Jazzbones in Tacoma. The purpose of this last minute show is to help raise funds to see me through open heart surgery which is tentatively scheduled for the coming weeks. Those of you who know me understand how precious my relationship is with Vicci. We are family and I have so many special memories of our time together since I first began representing Vicci when she was 16 years old. I hope to share some of those great times with you on Sunday night but I imagine none will compare with this once in a lifetime experience that Vicci is giving me on Sunday. The sacrifice she is making to interupt her busy work schedule in Los Angeles preparing for the upcoming release of her new album by Universal Republic, to be in Tacoma for me, is immense and heartfelt. Details are still being finalized but what we know at this point is that it's Sun, Mar 4, 7pm, tickets are $25 in advance and will go on sale tomorrow at 5pm on www.jazzbones.com. Check back on Jazzbones Facebook page in the coming days for updates on special guests. I sure hope to see your beautiful faces in attendance. And finally, my sincere gratitude to Vicci's manager, Beth Tallman, for putting this event together and making it happen. I love you, Beth.

Banff National Park is a breath of fresh air. A small mountain town with world class facilities...
Too many cover-bands play at The Swiss.
