SLEEPLESS NIGHTS 2014

Sleepless Nights started 12 years ago when Eric Shea started a tribute to the late Cecil Ingram Connor III aka Gram Parsons. The first two year was at Slims and it’s been at the Great American ever since. Good people, good music, good times and all proceeds went to South San Francisco Unified School District music program. In other words, money to help put instruments in kids hands. Cause as Eric said, “sure we got a water drought, but we’re in the middle of a huge drummer drought as well, and the world needs more token drummer shots…”
