HAMBOY JUKES BAND

Last month, Amboy Community Food Pantry in North Little Rock served more than 900 people. That's 900 people who would have gone hungry had it not been for the volunteer-run nonprofit. But pantries don't just fill themselves. So in addition to the good work of the volunteers who run the food bank, the nonprofit also needs donations; hence this show.
Hamboy Jukes Band (dig the nod to the Amboy Dukes, the psychedelic rock band that launched Ted Nugent into the world) is a super-group of sorts, including Jimmy Powell (Go Fast), Walter K (Shannon Boshears Band), Mike Nelson (Gun Bunnies, Big Silver, Amy Garland Band), Johnny Atomic, JR Top (Booyah! Dad), Mark Wyers (Josh the Devil and The Sinners, The Weisenheimers) and Gil Franklin (Port Arthur Band), as well as Jim Jolly on guitar and jazz pianist Bill White (Farris Holliman's Rhythm Masters).
Be sure to bring a canned ham. Other nonperishable food donations will be accepted as well.
