Brian Wilkie Benefit TONIGHT!
Tonight’s Benefit for Brian Wilkie at Martyrs’ will be a once in a lifetime show featuring This Must Be the Band and Tributosaurus. 7pm Tributosaurus will hit the stage and somewhere around 8:45pm we’ll be jumping up for your favorite dance party.
Once every hundred years or so, a musician comes along that is so brilliant that all the other players that hear him are at once stunned and amazed. Brian Wilkie has a kind of magic in his mind and playing that can make the deepest harmonic concept feel completely at home in rock, country, blues, pop or whatever he happens to be improving at that moment. He has lent his talents on the guitar and pedal steel to countless album projects and gigs.Unfortunately, Chicago can be a dangerous place. Just before Christmas, Brian was mugged. That incident took all of his cash and left him with medical bills and lost work. Join us for a great night of music, and we’ll pay back a little of what Brian has been giving to all of us for years.
