She fuels her four tour buses and trucks with B20 and speaks about the importance of its use almost everywhere she goes. What else can you ask for from 9-time Grammy-winning musician Bonnie Raitt? Is doing a press event and after show reception too much? Not for Bonnie…

What a fantastic person! Through coordination with the National Biodiesel Board and some other partners like the Guacamole Fund (coordinated the event), the ETCFC was the beneficiary of the opportunity to sell 50 tickets at a premium to be able to raise funds for biodiesel outreach and marketing locally! (Thank you to all the staff of the NBB for their help in selling the tickets!)

Additionally, she took the time to meet and greet with 30 of the ticket buyers after the concert, allowing the ETCFC to add to the price of the ticket. All said and done, we’ve raise around $4,000 from the event!

Thank you very much Bonnie Raitt!!

We are rocked to the core to hear of the passing of our dear friend, bandmate and musical genius, Mike Finnigan. He fought his long illness with the same fearlessness and ferocity he brought to every part of his life. Our deepest condolences go out to Candy, Kelly, Bridget and all his family.

Mike was one of the most powerful, virtuosic soul/gospel/blues singers and Hammond B3 players you’ll ever be blessed to hear. Respected and emulated by musicians the world over, his legacy of staggering
performances across his 60+ years career will stand the test of time. He stopped our show nearly every night. There was simply no one like him.

He was whipsmart, incredibly articulate and funny as hell. He was as devoted to his beloved family and friends as he was to helping so many struggling to get and stay sober. He and his wife Candy were instrumental in my own sobriety and I will be forever grateful.

Rest in peace, dear Mike. I know you’ll be shaking that Heavenly Choir to new heights as only you can do.

Here’s a clip from our 2013 Slipstream tour, where he tore up the place every night with Ray Charles’ iconic “I’ve Got News for You.”
