Val’s Voice – August 2006


Went to the “Out on the Deck Concert” last month. It was a benefit for Robyn Bailey, who was brutally attacked a few months ago. The concert was quite a success. There was a very nice-sized crowd, and at one point I was told they had raised about $1,600. I’m not sure if that was the final total, but it was probably close.

The line-up was exceptional, including about ten different performers. Bonnie Baker performed and was accompanied by Cathy on bongos. They did the song, “Lean on Me,” which was very good and really got the crowd into it.

Chely Tacket and Tammy Fowler were also on hand. Tammy’s song, “Blame it on the Gays,” is going to be used by TEP’s Vote NO on 1 campaign.
