TFF: A great concert for a great cause

When Racine wants to, it throws a great party! Saturday night's 16th Annual Thoughts for Food event presented more than three dozen bands and performers -- all working for free at 10 downtown venues -- to raise funds and food for the Racine County Food Bank.

If you weren't there, wandering from bar to bar in the bracing -- but bearable -- cold, you missed some great performances in a variety of genres: from trombones to guitar; keyboard to accordian; drummers, sax, harmonica; folk singing to hard rock. There were touches of Johnny Cash, a smattering of Violent Femmes and lots of original music.

Below, are just a few of the performers.

And HERE are pictures of Racinians having a great time at the many venues.
