I just want to remind folks that tomorrow (Sunday, March 26) will be the big day for the tribute concert in Tacoma for our friend Buck Ormsby of the Fabulous Wailers.
I wish I could attend this event, but I can’t due to family commitments.
I will be sharing a special video for the event, which will shown exclusively for the attendees.
Here’s the basic on the event, shared by Tacoma Weekly:
Details have emerged for a tribute concert for fallen Tacoma rock icon John “Buck” Ormsby. “Buck’s House Party” will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. March 26 at the Temple Theatre with a lineup that will include Little Bill & The Bluenotes; the Fab Wailers, featuring members of the Fabulous Wailers‘ most recent lineup and Gail Harris, who sang with the band in the 1960s; “Angel in the Morning” singer Merrilee Rush; The Ad Ventures, featuring Don Wilson and Nokie Edwards of Tacoma’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Ventures; The Kingsmen; City Zu; Jim Valley; The Daily Flash; Billy Mac; The Galaxies; and Tacoma guitar hero Jerry Miller, of Moby Grape fame.
Promoter Mike Mitchell said there will be no cover charge for the event, but there will be an auction of signed rock memorabilia, and donations will be accepted to help cover costs.
