The Waterfront Blues Festival has been produced by the Oregon Food Bank since 1988 and is their largest fundraising event.  The festival has become a treasured tradition for locals and visitors alike.  Little Village Foundation, a non-profit founded by former Robert Cray/Etta James keyboardist Jim Pugh, presents this riveting two-part revue!  Willie's latest release, If Nothing Ever Changes, is another in the small but growing catalog on the Little Village Foundation imprint.  Joining Willie will be label mate Ron Thompson, John Blues Boyd and Aki Kumar.  Backed by the Cavalcade Combo - Kid Andersen on guitar, Lorenzo Farrell on bass, keyboardist & Hammond B3 master Jim Pugh and both J. Hansen & D'Mar on drums - this will be a show you will not want to miss!  Special guests Rick Estrin on harmonica and Curtis Salgado on vocals round out this top-notch revue!
