Sad Times

Post by Hippieforever99 » Wed Mar 25, 2009 9:12 am

When I think of BBQ I also think of Southern Blues, as they just seem to kinda go together. I lived in Kitchener/Waterloo for just over 20 years until I got married and moved to Niagara Falls. While living in KW I was able to partake in quite a few blues concerts and picnics that were put on there, and got to see and meet quite a few great bands and people. One of these people that I was fortunate to know was a Blues Legend by the name of Mel Brown. Mel loved Kitchener so much that he and his wife moved there quite a few years ago and was embrassed by the people there that loved to hear him play. On Friday March 20/09 I am sad to say that Mel passed away in a Kitchener hospital from respiratory failure. He was truly a Blues Legend and will be greatly missed. His funeral is being held at The Gig Music Hall in Kitchener to help accomodate his fans paying their last respects. For more information on Mels life and funeral arrangements please click on the News link in the following website. 8) Hippie
