Our friend, Josh Baca of Los Texmaniacs, lost his home to a house fire on New Year’s Eve. His family of seven was able to escape, but lost all of their possessions when their San Antonio rent house burned to the ground in a matter of minutes. The Baca family did not have renters insurance.
Our network of family, friends, and musicians are pulling together in an effort to raise money for this wonderful family. Hill Top Cafe will be sponsoring two evenings of music and relief efforts: Wednesday, February 21st and Saturday, February 24th.
Some of Texas’s most revered artists (Marcia Ball, Johnny Nicholas), along with rising songwriters (Kelley Mickwee, Jaimee Harris) will be joining forces to raise funds and hope for the Baca family.
Hill Top Cafe will be serving a four course meal during the benefit shows, and will host a raffle. $100 per person / Lone Star Dining Room, $50 per person / Cavern Dining Room.
All proceeds will go to the Baca family in order to help them rebuild and recover.
Additional benefit concerts will be held in San Antonio and Austin.
Artists that will be participating at the various benefits to be held at Hill Top Café, Austin & San Antonio include:
- Johnny Nicholas & Hell Bent
- Bill Kirchen
- Marcia Ball
- The Delinquents’ from Lafayette Louisiana (Swing & Cajun)
- Los Texmaniacs
- Kelley Mickwee
- Jaimee Harris
For those of you who are unable to attend, but would still like to help, you may purchase raffle tickets or make a donation directly to the family.
