Deidra White threw a party at Bas Bleu in downtown Valdosta.
The band lineup kept changing, but it included both amateurs such as
Deidra, Stan White, Charles F. Simons (who is Valdosta Chief of Police
when he’s not playing lead guitar), and professional musicians such as
Joe Smothers of Skannyardle and Brady Carrington and Rory Hoke of The Moore Trio.
The occasion was Deidra’s birthday and a benefit for Diane:
Right now, one of our own Diane, age 48, who is the “Mom” of the kitchen staff at The Bleu Cafe is fighting her own battle against this disease.
So on Deidra’s birthday, this Saturday, we’re going to celebrate health and being alive while we raise money to help Diane with expenses while she is unable to work.
