A benefit concert for the family of Big Bad Smitty was held here at BB's. It's truly a touching event to see the outpouring of support that St. Louis shows it's own!

It was a "who's who" of local talent that donated their time to come down and share the stage with each other. Local blues patriarch Henry Townsend was on hand, as well as Oliver Sain, Larry Thurston, Marsha Evans, and so many more.

St. Louis Blues Society chairman (and member of The Cryin' Shame) John May warmly introduced Bonnie Smith, who shared these kind words with us. "Smitty and I had 17 good years, and I know he loved St. Louis, and he loved the blues...and all of you. Thank you".
St. Louis Blues Society members were on hand manning the door to collect donations in order to help Bonnie Smith defray the cost of funeral expenses. Your help is still needed. To lend a hand to this cause, send your donations to:
