Jazzbones Holiday Benefit Show

On Friday, Dec. 14, 8 p.m., Jazzbones (2803 6th Ave., Tacoma) will be hosting a benefit show featuring Big Wheel Stunt Show and Danny Newcomb & the Sugarmakers. All proceeds from this rock show will be donated to the Tacoma Rescue Mission in honor of the recent passing of BWSS drummer Justin’s dear mother Dian Rose. The Mission was near and dear to her heart for decades, and Jazzbones is going to do its best to make a financial mark in her name on this night. Chances are there will be some surprise appearances. It’s going to be a festive night, so be prepared for the hugs, dancing and perhaps even some head banging. Doors at 7 p.m. Full dinner menu available. Show begins at 8 p.m. 21+ only. $8 advance, $10 at the door.
