Join us as we celebrate International Autism Awareness with our own version of “Light it up Blue” featuring local blues legend Packrat’s Smokehouse!
The local band Packrat’s Smokehouse call their music Florida swamp blues. The group first began conjuring that brand of the blues in 1989 when singer, harmonica player and percussionist Anthony “Packrat” Thompson teamed up with guitarist-vocalist Robert “Lightning Boy” Thomas. The band also includes Aaron “Pop” Watson (who joined in 1993) and bassist Kenny “The Wizard” Sly (who joined in ’94).
All door proceeds, silent auction, and raffle proceeds go directly to The Chase Academy, which brings education and support services to Volusia County’s children with autism.
Doors open at 6:00, opening act “Debbie D & Vintage Now Band” starts at 7:15
