On March 22, 2019, Oregon Music Hall of Fame inductee Louis "King Louie" Pain (Paul deLay Band, Linda Hornbuckle Band, Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group, Lloyd Jones Struggle, etc.) suffered a major heart attack while performing at a gig. He and his wife Tracy (Soul Sisters Productions) have taken a major financial hit as a result.
"Heart 2 Heart" is an all-star musical concert and fundraiser organized to both help the Pains and to support a non-profit organization they strongly believe in: the Caring Ambassadors Program.
CAP has been providing free hepatitis C and other health screenings at the Waterfront Blues Festival for 13 years. 50% of the proceeds from Heart 2 Heart will be donated by the Pains to support the Caring Ambassadors Health Pavilion at the 2019 festival.
