Beloved New Orleans musician Cliff Hines recently experienced every musician’s worst nightmare — his van was broken into and all of his equipment stolen. His windows were shattered and everything gone, including some rare vintage gear and custom pedals. Now, the New Orleans music community is coming together in support of Hines for a benefit at the Howlin’ Wolf tomorrow, Friday, June 12th. Proceeds will go towards a fund to replace the stolen gear. Get tickets here.
Hines plays with local prog rock/jazz outfit Hildegard and has shared a stage with prominent acts such as Christian Scott, Mike Dillon and Gravity A, to name a few.
Dubbed “Pack the Van,” the benefit show will feature performances from Space and Harmony, a side project featuring members of The Revivalists and Naughty Professor, and an all-star SuperJam featuring Cliff Hines, Paul Thibodaux, and Max Moran, plus members of The Revivalists, Earphunk, Gravity A, Naughty Professor, and a host of others.
