Blues jam benefits Ken's Automotive

The Ashland Blues Society invites musicians and blues lovers to attend a jam and help out a neighbor who's in a jam.

Ashland Blues Society member Harpo DeRoma and his band, Rogue Rage, will host a blues jam at 6:30 p.m., at Roscoe's BBQ, 117 S. Main St. Phoenix to benefit Ken Peck, whose business, Ken's Automotive, burned to the ground a few weeks ago. The business is about a block north of Roscoe's, and DeRoma says Peck always has been known to help the poorer members of the community get their cars back on the road safely and inexpensively.

Admission is by donation, so dig deep and help one man beat the burned-out blues.
