Eric Nadel's 3rd annual Benefit Blowout for Homeless Kids benefits the more than 3,000 homeless teens attending schools in FWISD, through the work of Focus on Teens. All proceeds go directly to Focus on Teens. (Focusonteens.org for more information.)
Walt Wilkins, a Texas native and DFW favorite, describes himself this way: "Songwriter, singer, traveler, troubador - the calling I answered, the life I chose, the way I make my way. I chose to go on this road 25 years ago. It's been a spiritual quest, an amazing trip, at turns heartbreaking & transcendent. In that time I've made 9 solo records, 4 records with The Mighty Mystiqueros, 1 with my wife Tina, and a new live record with my friend Kevin Welch. I've had over 100 or more songs recorded by other artists, traveled a fair part of the world, and had some very, very large times."
Opening for Walt and singing harmonies with him will be Kelley Mickwee. A former member of Texas' acclaimed all-woman Americana group, The Trishas, Kelley has more recently been a member The Shinyribs. Hyena's provides a wonderful intimate listening room to enjoy these two amazing artists.
A live and silent auction will be part of the night's festivities, featuring unique sports memorabilia and the chance to dine at fine restaurants with local celebrities such as Eric Nadel, Tom Grieve and Emily Jones.
