The Nate Armento Benefit & Tribute Show

  • Tuesday, May 18
  • 7:00PM
  • Free with Donations Accepted

Doors - 5 PM, Kevin Burt - 7:30 PM, Critical Mass - 8:30 PM

This is a free show, but we will be accepting donations & raising funds to benefit American Foundation for Suicide Prevention at the door and throughout the evening.  You may also donate in advance online at the link below to support the benefit.


Back in late 2020, our long time friend Nate Armento chose to end his life the evening of August 11. As you can imagine, we felt like the floor dropped from under us. He was our best friend, and best roadie I guess you could say. We chose to do a benefit for AFSP because we don’t want people like Nate to think that they don’t matter or aren't loved. We want to give them hope and let them know that they matter and that they belong here. We want to tell them that they are loved no matter what.

Kevin Burt Website

For more than 25 years Kevin Burt has been electrifying audiences throughout the Midwest dispelling the myth that true blues has no roots in Iowa. His soul-inspired presentation is unique which consistently get him compared to a range of artists like Bill Withers and Aaron Neville, with the ability to build an audience rapport that has been compared to B.B. King
