The Paul Miles benefit for THAW at Memphis Smoke in Royal Oak Sunday was a night to remember, highlighted by an extended version of "Mustang Sally" to cap the evening, with Paul Miles on vocals and a standout backup band featuring Billy Davis and David Nefesh on guitars and a blazin' horn section with Robert Reeves on sax, Big Al on trumpet and Larry Everhart on harmonica. Paul displayed some swivel-hipped moves that haven't been seen since he was a standout running back at Bowling Green! Other highlights were Terrie Lea performing "Help Me Make It Through the Night" with backing by Billy Davis, and Valerie Barrymore and Steve Somers belting out Tina's "Proud Mary." Also performing at the benefit were the MotorCity Tones, Zhelin, Tracy Kash Thomas, Luther "Badman" Keith.Ken Murphy, Darryl Lee, and Rob Schneider. Most importantly, nearly $2,000 was raised to benefit The Heat and Warmth Fund for low-income families.
