What is this exactly? Some sort of benefit gig for his family perhaps?

Today a new commercial for Ziggo internet was showed on TV in Holland. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI_E0MRPR5U
They used Let It All Hang Out from BB/The Hombres. Now let's hope his widow gets some of the money from the royalties paid...

no, not a benefit.....it's recognition of B.B as a Memphis artist

On facebook Judith is going to this event.

"The small brass music notes lining the sidewalks of Beale Street are engraved with names as well-known as Elvis Presley and as obscure, at least to some, as Dr. Herman Green, who played with many jazz greats".....
