Dear Santa,

I've been kinda good ALLLLL year. I deserve to see The Rae Gordon Band bring Christmas cheer to the Highway 99 Blues club this Friday night. The Kings of Washington blues are joining the Rae Gordon Band and King Kivett! Award winning guitarist and singer CD Woodbury is known for his strong solos and deep meaningful guitar work and is the current winner of the Washington Blues Society’s Memphis Contest.
Plus, bandleader, promotor and trombone player Randy Oxford is going to bring down the house, like he always does. So, I'm going to call and make my reservations today. Plus, I'm going to bring a coat for the needy, so that makes me EXTRA good.

Love, Me
