Blues fans packed the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord, NH on Wednesday night to help raise money for Child and Family Services.  

W.C. Handy Award Winner Ronnie Earl & the Broadcasters almost finished an amazing set when the power went out leaving fans in the dark.  Some joked it was Ronnie's powerful guitar playing that caused the outage.

After an impromptu intermission, the management announced that the venue had to be evacuated because the outage affecting the area was not expected to be resolved until after 11:00 pm.

Unfortunately fans did not get to hear the crowned Blues Hall of Fame winner Robert Cray.      

On a positive note, the night was not a total loss because blues fans raised money for a great cause!  The proceeds from this benefit concert went to NH Child and Family Services to help provide funding for vital programs and services for children and families in need.
