KPFZ plans Oct. 4 Blues and Barbecue fundraiser, celebration

FINLEY – The Blues and Barbecue benefit for KPFZ 88.1 FM Lake County Community Radio is back.


The event will be held at the Finley Grange, 1510 Big Valley Road in Finley on Saturday, Oct. 4, beginning at 3 p.m., with dinner served at 4 p.m.


KPFZ has been back on the air since April 25 after a three-year hiatus. To celebrate the return to the air and to raise funds for ongoing expenses KPFZ will hold the blues dance party and barbecue.


Blues Diva Bettie Mae Fikes will perform her inspirational and one-of-a-kind blues stylings. Fikes is known worldwide; she's performed at Carnegie Hall and has recently returned from a State Department-sponsored tour of Turkey. She has frequently performed in Lake County, most recently at the Blue Wing Blues Festival in Upper Lake.


Joining Fikes will be Levi Lloyd and The 501 Band. Lloyd is a veteran in the world of blues music and has opened for B.B. King, John Lee Hooker and Joe Louis Walker, to name a few.


Rounding out the evening will be the band Without a Net with KPFZ’s own Herb Gura, who is a programmer at the radio station.


Lake County Community Radio is a nonprofit, noncommercial radio station. This will be one of the station's biggest fundraisers of the year.


The admission price to Blues and Barbecue includes all the music and a barbecue dinner with all the fixings. A vegetarian meal will be available. There also will be a no-host bar.


Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Tickets for children ages 7 to 11 are $10, and tickets for those under age 7 are free. Advanced tickets can be purchased at The Healing Earth, 350 N. Main St., in Lakeport or Java Express, located at 14624 Lakeshore Dr. in Clearlake.
