Below, my earlier post on Jeremy. Check out our conversation, too. He talks about his foundation!But here's the latest. (Music Millennium has the goods HERE)
This Thanksgiving weekend, more than three dozen of Portland's finest musicians will join together at the historic Alberta Rose Theatre to celebrate one of the most legendary rock concerts of all time: The Last Waltz, the 1976 farewell concert by "The Band", which featured such superstar guests as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, and Eric Clapton, and was made into Martin Scorcese's famous "rockumentary" of the same name. The tribute concert, dubbed The Next Waltz, takes place Saturday, November 26 -- 35 years and a day from the original event. The show will benefit worthy causes The Jeremy Wilson Foundation, which helps fund and secure health care for Northwest musicians -- an often underserved group when it comes to medical coverage -- and, appropriate to the holiday season, the Oregon Food Bank.
Tickets are $17.00 in advance and $20.00 day of show. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the Oregon Food Bank. Minors are admitted if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Doors open at 7 PM; the show begins at 8 PM. Advance tickets can be purchased online at AlbertaRoseTheatre.com, by phone at (503) 764-4131, or in person at the Alberta Rose Theatre box office, 3000 NE Alberta Street, and Music Millennium, 3158 East Burnside Street.

JEREMY WILSON FOUNDATION AND MUSIC TOO.
Remember the Dharma Bums? Part of the rich, local scene a few decades back. Jeremy has had an incredible musical life, and health problems, too. Serious ones. That is in part, what lead to Jeremy forming The Jeremy Wilson Foundation.
Jeremy and his assistant and a local musician in her own right, Renee Muzquiz, joined me at the KINK studios to catch up, and learn more about the foundation. LISTEN BELOW.
