Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts & The Lincoln Theatre Present
The Lloyd Jones Struggle with special guest LaRhonda Steele


Bluesman Curtis Salgado has referred to Lloyd Jones as “the Godfather of the Blues in Portland.” The Lloyd Jones Struggle’s summer tour of Europe and throughout the US will begin with a special concert here at the Lincoln Theatre.

Lloyd “Have Mercy” Jones brings the powerful “Atlas Horns” for a night of “Swampified Soul & Funky Blues.” As a songwriter covered by Coco Montoya, Joe Louis Walker, Michael Burke, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown and others, Jones will be playing original tunes from his eight nationally acclaimed recordings, including the latest “Doin’ What It Takes” release on Reference recordings.

The show will also feature special guest gospel and soul vocalist from Portland, LaRhonda Steele and Portland’s boss of the B3, ‘King Louis’ Pain, who are celebrating their new CD release “Rock Me Baby.”

Lloyd says, “Gonna keep you up all night baby!” Fun starts at 7:30pm.

Advance festival seating tickets: $25 with $2 off for Lincoln Theatre and REFA members.




Rick Epting PhotoIn 2006, friends of the late Rick Epting formed the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts and continued his legacy of supporting the Arts in Skagit County with a showcase of local talent and humor. Our mission is to help raise money that is needed for Organizations, Scholarships, and other non-profit groups, to promote and encourage live performance shows and to provide ongoing support for local artists in the community.

Rick Epting  was one of the founding members of both the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation, the Skagit Performing Arts Council (SPAC), and appointed by the Governor to serve on the Washington State Arts Commission. He was also instrumental in the restoration campaign for the Lincoln Theatre and the planning and organization for McIntyre Hall in Mount Vernon. Rick was a proud supporter of Arts groups and organizations in Skagit County until his untimely death in August 2005.
