Blues Band Draws Crowds, Raises Money for Hurricane Victims

Report From Oroville, Washington (RNS) - Oregon native Joe Horn has been at it since he could hold a guitar. He's recognized as one of the best in the Northwest and lately has been drawing encore requests wherever he performs. Yet being good at the guitar is only one of Joe's passions. For him and his family band "Triple Threat", people matter too. They've taken the stage from Oregon to Washington with one thing in mind: to raise money for the victims of recent hurricanes.

"Money from all album sales will be matched for the hurricane relief," Joe told the crowd at the Rendezvous Rhythm and Blues Festival in Oroville, Washington over Labor Day Weekend. "Whatever you do, we will match." His challenge was met with generosity from the festival crowd and the band's albums selling out by the case. The event raised hundreds of dollars for the American Red Cross.

Other musicians from across the west coast were also on hand at the Rendezvous Rhythm and Blues Festival to sing and play their music, including Oregon favorites Too Slim and the Taildraggers, Coyote Blues, and Ben Rice and The Youth of Blues.

Particularly strong response came from the Rendezvous crowd when Joe, referring to the tragedy in New Orleans, said, "This song has never had more meaning than it does today" before launching his band Triple Threat into a wild and unforgettable performance of ZZ Top's "Jesus just left Chicago and he's bound for New Orleans."

The song hailed by many attendees as the top performance during the festival--one that brought the crowd from their seats cheering "More! More!"--was Triple Threat's performance of Jimi Hendrix's legendary song, "Voodoo Child". A video clip of the band's version of this song can be downloaded here.
