Local Artists Perform Free Concert for Hurricane Katrina Survivors

Entertainers across the country are coming together to perform at concerts benefiting the victims of Hurricane Katrina. One such concert was right here in Lubbock Wednesday night. However this one was not put on to raise money, but to raise the spirits of those in the audience...the survivors themselves.

The Cactus Theater headed up the effort in hopes of giving them something other than the disaster to think about at least for one night. Since they announced the concert, they've had an outpouring of artists wanting to help.

Cactus Theater Music Producer, Don Caldwell said, "we've had entertainers calling ever since this happened saying we want to do a benefit, we want to do something. And just to think it's America coming together and working together and, you know, showing love to each other."

Nearly 20 local artists performed, many free of charge. One of the hurricane survivors who's been a blues artist for over 20 years did a jam session with the Cactus Theater Rhythm Machine.
