Deidra White Birthday Party and Benefit for Diane

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.

Here are a few clips of the band:

That’s the whole playlist. You can pick out individual videos through this link to the playlist.
