A Fundraiser to Benefit Ryan Belmore

Two legendary blues artists and local musicians perform to support a friend

35-year old Newporter, Ryan Belmore recently received a serious and lifechanging
Cancer diagnosis and is receiving ongoing treatments which have run into hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. Ryan’s health insurance is tremendously expensive , so a group of local musicians is banding together to “Rally For Ryan” to raise funds to offset some of his costs. “Ryan has done so much to support music and the arts and serves on many local boards for various organizations in Newport, that we felt it only fitting to step up and support a friend in his time of need”; says event organizers Rick
Cretarola and Mark Gorman.

Event headliners will be The Johnny Winter Allstar Band, featuring Grammy Award winner and guitarist for the Johnny Winter Band, Paul Nelson. Joining Nelson will be legendary bluesman and local native, James Montgomery, Bobby “T” Torello on drums and Mike Nuno rounds out the power blues trio on Bass. Paul Nelson is a Grammy-winning American guitarist, performer, record producer, and songwriter who has worked with everyone from Eric Clapton to members of the Allman Brothers Band and the list goes on. He was in the blues rock band of guitarist/singer icon Johnny Winter. He produced and played on several of Winter's albums, including the Grammy-nominated I'm a Blues Man, Roots, Step Back.

Local musicians performing that night include; Bill & Gabi of Silverteeth, Matt Bruneau and Leslie Grimes, Steve Cerilli, John Monllos and Joanne Rodino, The Playboys-Mark Gorman & Jack Casey, Justin Pomfret, Randy Robbins, Brian Scott, Michelle Siegal and ZanRicky-Zan Lord & Rick Cretarola.
