An all-star cast of Portland blues, soul and R&B artists are coming together for Love for Linda, a benefit for Portland soul diva Linda Hornbuckle, at Jimmy Mak's, Sunday, Nov. 11.

Linda, recently diagnosed with kidney cancer, has taken a sabbatical from work and her band while she undergoes treatment.

Her powerful band—Doug Lewis on guitar, Randy Monroe on bass, Lenn Russell on drums and Louis Pain on keyboards—continues in the interim, backing such guest vocalists as Andy Stokes and LaRhonda Steel. The band will back several guest stars at Love for Linda.

Participating artists at the benefit include Steele, Andy Stokes, Patrick Lamb, Lloyd Jones, DK Stewart, Sonny Hess & NW Women in R&B, Janice Scroggins, Lisa Mann, Norman Sylvester, and more.

There will be two shows, 6-8 p.m. and 9-11 p.m. Tickets for each show are $25 in advance and are available online at www.tickettomato.com. Doors open at 5 p.m.

More details on the Nov. 11 lineup will follow closer to the event.

Hornbuckle started singing at the age of six in Portland's Grace & Truth Pentecostal Church, a church pastured by her father, Bishop Howard Hornbuckle. Linda has thrilled audiences in the Pacific Northwest, Europe, Canada and across the U.S. She has toured and/or recorded with national recording artists Quarterflash, Nu-Shooz, and Dan Reed. Hornbuckle later became lead vocalist for the high profile Motown revue, Body & Soul and in 1992 became the driving force for the blues act Linda Hornbuckle & the No DeLay Band.

In recent years Linda has performed regularly and recorded in a duo with award-winning pianist Janice Scroggins, as well as with the Linda Hornbuckle Band, firmly establishing herself as The Northwest's #1 Soul Sister. She has performed at scores of benefits for causes and issues, most recently Brian Grant's "Shake It 'til We Make It" Parkinson's fundraiser.

By day, Linda is a community health specialist for the Multnomah County Health Department, educating teens about health issues that affect them, such as HIV, sexually transmitted diseases and teen pregnancy.

Proceeds from "Love for Linda" are being administered in Linda's behalf by the Cascade

Blues Association, a 501 C3 non-profit. Tickets to the event are tax deductible. Those unable to attend can make direct contributions to the Cascade Blues Association, attention "Love for Linda", at PO Box 14493, Portland OR 97214; or can make a donation to the Linda Hornbuckle Emergency Relief Fund at On Point Community Credit Union.
