Gary Smith In Hospice

Gary Smith, (With guitar) one of Des Moines great blues guitarists is in Kavanah House, a Hospice out on the westside of Des Moines. Gary was one of those legendary jam masters, who ran some great blues jams in the city. He took over the Sunday night jam at the Hull Ave, after I left. He also had a great band called the landsharks, among many others over the years. I will update the information as soon as it comes in. In the meantime keep Gary in your thoughts.

Rick Mosqueda, Dave Andrews, and Gary Smith.


Just talked to Gary on the phone. He is in good spirits and is staying at Kavanah House for awhile while his stomach gets better from Chemo Therapy. He plans to return to home once he is well. He did say he has his guitar with him, and that is a good sign! Get better Gary and hope to see you soon on the jam cirrcut:-)
