Thank you to all our friends and fans for your support during this difficult time. With your help we were able to raise some good money for Red Cross Sandy relief. If you haven’t done so already, please think about donating some of your time and/or money to help those still in need.

Says Jon Spencer: “Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone who was affected by the hurricane. The Blues Explosion has lived in downtown Manhattan for many years, and it means a lot to us to be among the first bands playing after the storm. We are gonna have a great night – Lets get together and and do it! But more importantly, as we’ve done for our concerts this week, JSBX will donate 25% of tickets and merch sales to the Red Cross and hurricane relief.”
