Chicago Blues Legends and Shining Stars are coming together for an all-star blues concert to support their friend and ally, Amberly Stokes. Amberly is a fixture in the Chicago Blues scene, leading various fund raisers for blues musicians and working tirelessly to keep Chicago Blues alive and well at Rosa’s Lounge.
On August 24, Amberly’s 12 year old son, Jameson, was struck by a car while crossing the street after school in Oak Park, IL. Jameson was critically injured in the accident, spending 9 days in the Pediatric ICU. He sustained multiple injuries and will need several surgeries, including a bone transplant before he will be able to walk again.
Jameson faces a long road to recovery and his expenses are increasing daily. House of Blues is hosting this benefit for Jameson on Nov. 20 featuring Chicago blues artists Lil’ Ed & the Blues Imperials, Ronnie Baker Brooks, the Kinsey Report, Larry “Mud” Morganfield, Deitra Farr, Lynne Jordan, John Primer, Lurrie Bell, Rico McFarland, Marty Sammon, and Guy King.
