For those of you who don’t know Chico, the man behind the Blues and Muse open mic nights, is largely responsible for Rogue Bard Media existing in the form it does today. Blues and Muse is where I cut my teeth on event videography, and how I got so much tedious practice at synching up audio and video from three completely separate sources. Without Chico there might not even be a Rogue Bard Media. Okay that’s not entirely accurate, there would still be a Rogue Bard Media, but we definitely wouldn’t be working with all the different people we are right now all throughout the metro Detroit area. Places like Kuumba’s Cove, Awakenings, Diesel Boot Camp, and people like Tim Jeffrey, Kamal Smith, and Dan Brooks. Chico is the man and Chico needs our help.

Chico has recently received a diagnosis of Cancer and a  benefit has been organized to help Chico with his expenses, which are mounting up fast. If you would like to perform or know someone who might like to perform at his benefit please contact: Dale Robertson or Bridget Elkins through facebook. The benefit will be held on Sunday May 22, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. until the party stops hopping at The New Way Bar 23130 Woodward Ave, Ferndale, MI 48220
