Buddy Fleet Benefit Shreveport LA

Just received this from email about a fund raiser for Buddy Flett. Kenny Wayne Shepherd and a host of area musicians are putting on a show tomorrow in Shreveport. I don't have a hot link to the newpaper with more information, but as soon as it comes in from the reader, I will update the post.

Hi, I happened across your website by chance, and saw that you had a
review of Buddy Flett's album, Mississippi Sea.

Your readers may not know that Buddy has been quite ill recently.
Tomorrow night, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and many local friends and
musicians will be putting on a benefit show at Shreveport's historic
Strand Theatre. Here's a link to the local newspaper article about
Buddy's medical condition and the benefit. Please spread the news,

Thank you,

The fundraiser was amazing. If it wasn't sold out it was very close to it. I looked around once and it was hard to identify any empty seats.

It was such an amazing experience to see so many people gathered to share their admiration for Buddy and to help with some of the medical bills as well.

When Buddy came out and played a song and sang with Kenny Wayne Shepherd the crowd was on their feet and the energy was something one won't forget. It was an amazing experience all in all. I am sure if you want to help out there are more than a few ways still available to people. I will ask around if it seems anyone can't find the information.
