The “Blues, Brews & BBQ” in Support of Plowshares Meals on Wheels is coming to Barra of Mendocino on Saturday, September 17th.
Last Fiscal Year we served 31,587 meals to home-bound seniors who would not have a hot nutritious meal with out the dedicated drivers and runners who deliver these meals right to their door.
A gourmet dinner prepared by Chef Austin, from UVMC, will include BBQ tri-tip, chicken and a vegetarian entree with sides of potato salad, cole slaw and baked beans. Dessert and coffee will follow.
Anderson Valley Brewing and Lagunitas Brewing Company will be donating and pouring their special brews and Barra wines will be featured.
The Event features “The Plowshares Blues Band:
Henry Oden – Bass (Joe Louis Walker)
Rich Kirch – Guitar (John Lee Hooker)
Marcus David – Drums (Clover)
Fonky Rob Gordon – Keyboards (Craig Horton)
With special quests:
Lisa Kindred– Vocals
Barry “The Fish” Melton – Guitar,Vocals

The music is Boogie derived, bluesy, funky and very dance able.
