Musical Postcards: My Brother's Keeper



My Brother's Keeper, a superb 10 piece funk band from Grosse Pointe, MI, cover the Commodores' 1977 classic, Brick House, at the The Mix, Seattle.  "Concert for Victor's Victory" was a benefit for 7-year-old Victor who is fighting bravely against a rare form of brain tumor known as DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma). Donations to help Victor can be made through Paypal at the Concert for Victor's Victory page on Facebook.  The excellent Skip Barnes, owner of my former Mini Cooper is on bass (after a decade of correspondence, it was great to finally meet you, Skip)  -sadly I don't know the names of the other band members.
