Bill Lee Riley Benefit Gig

Sun Records legend, Bill Lee Riley, is in desperate need of help these days, with growing health bills following a couple of years of unbelievable back luck. He's currently being treated for cancer and in an effort to help him out, Sonny Burgess and the Pacers are holding a benefit show for Billy Lee on August 30 at 1 pm at the Silver Moon in Newport, Arkansas.

Original Pacer, Bobby Crafford is trying to line up a number of artists to play with all the proceeds going to Billy Lee. Anyone interested in attending or playing should contact Bobby Crafford at or on 501-803-4834.

Also, our best friend Bob Timmers is helping raise money for Billy Lee, visit for more details.

Newport is only about two hours from me and I will definitely be going. Larry Donn emailed to tell me he and Ace Cannon, along with W.S. Holland will also be playing. Sounds like a great time.
