Our music family does what we proudly do best – come together for one of our own. Our good friend Chuck Cotton’s home of 30 years was left uninhabitable after the April tornadoes in Greensboro. The home was not insured. Imagine yourself in the same situation…

Many of you know Chuck as the cool cat on the drums at many of the BNG jams or perhaps you’ve seen him play somewhere around the world with the legendary, Bob Margolin. Those of us who know him personally will tell you that he is not merely an incomparable musician and vocalist, Chuck is one of the kindest and most humble people that you’re likely to meet.

Quite a few musicians will be donating their time and energy to the cause. In addition to a fun day of music and dancing, we’ll have a silent “art” auction. If you’re the creative type (painting, photography, pottery, woodwork, jewelry, glass work…seriously anything unique that you’ve created – no mass produced pieces please) and have a piece or two that you’d care to donate, we’ll happily welcome it. Think outside the box, folks. We even have some donated dance lessons 😊

Many of you have heard Chuck play dozens of times without having paid a cent. Please consider paying it forward, folks.
