It's egg huntin' season

Did you hear about popular local singer Ron Howard? Ronnie is the lead singer in the band Cruisin’ and does other performance gigs as well. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, his auto caught fire and he lost everything, I mean everything. He lost the car, which also had all of his sound equipment inside of it. Then he found out his wife forgot to update their insurance premium and voila!!! … no insurance! Well, the good folks at Cleats on the way to Marblehead are holding a benefit for Ronnie on Sunday, April 7 from 1-5 p.m. Tickets are $25 for a special buffet meal and are available at Cleats, Minuteman Press and at The Beacon. That afternoon you can hear Cruisin’, Colin Dussault, Smooth Groove and more. Definitely worth the price of admission.
