Good Music for a Good Cause: A Benefit for Jon Papandrew

Jon Papandrew has been the Operations Manager at the Casino Ballroom for more than a decade. His face has been the first to welcome each and every artist to Hampton Beach his hand has been the last to bid them farewell as they hit the road to the next gig. As you may know, Jon was recently diagnosed with Stage IV liver cancer. It has metastasized to his bones. Needless to say, the diagnosis has been devastating not only for Jon, but for his family, his friends and the entire Casino Ballroom community. In addition to the physical and emotional toil, Jon is faced with the incredible burden of affording cancer treatment drugs which cost close to $6,000 a month! The tables have turned and Jon needs our help like never before.
Proceeds from this show will go directly to the Papandrew family.

The outpouring of support for Jon and his family has been amazing. Many of you have asked, “How can I help?” This is your chance. Simply buy a ticket (or a lot of tickets) and come hear some great music and have a great time. Tickets for the benefit are $20 per person and are on sale now at www.casinoballroom.com. Never before has $20 and a good time helped out so much.

We look forward to an evening of good music for a good cause.
A heartfelt thanks in advance from all of us to you.

Little Feat
Easily one of the hardest working bands in show biz, today's Little Feat is a seven-member powerhouse that ably carries on the group's tradition in both the recording and touring arenas. Their most recent studio album is Kickin' It At The Barn, produced by Feat-ers Paul Barrere, Bill Payne and Fred Tackett. It's named after the place it was recorded throughout 2003, Tackett's barn-come-studio in Topanga Canyon, which Bill Payne has called 'Little Feat's version of The Band's 'Big Pink',' and which lent an invaluable ambience to the undertaking. In his liner notes, faithful Feat scribe Paul Barrere writes, 'If music is a conversation between the players, then we are talking like never before'this has been truly one of the most memorable recording projects we've done. We started with an idea to write songs on acoustic guitar and piano, like the old days before computers and samples, and then let the band interpret the music.

Feat's story began in 1969 when songwriter, performer, multi-instrumentalist, and all around colorful character Lowell George, formerly of Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention, set out to form his own band -- at Zappa's suggestion. The brilliant and often idiosyncratic George connected with keyboard master Bill Payne, and, along with drummer Richie Hayward and Roy Estrada, founded Little Feat. They were soon signed to Warner Bros., where Little Feat, in various configurations, would remain for twelve of their sixteen albums. With hits like Dixie chicken, Times Loves a Hero and Sailin Shoes "the Feat" don't fail ya live!
