2nd Annual Checkmates Concert

Congratulations to our friend Dr. Jim Allison who was recently awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize for Medicine! Jim appeared live in concert on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at the Firehouse Saloon with the Checkmates, jamming out on vocals and blues harp with fellow band members Dr. Greg Lizee (drums), Dr. Anthony Lucci (guitar), Adela Justice (bass), Daron Gilmore (lead vocals), Nina Boulton (lead vocals), Dr. Patrick Hwu (keyboard), Dr. Powel Brown (trumpet), Scott Krueger (trombone), Kyle Krueger (baritone sax), and Dr. Ferran Prat (tenor sax). The Checkmates are primarily made up of MD Anderson Cancer Center doctors and staff.

All proceeds raised benefit Halo House, and help to provide a “home away from home” to blood cancer patients in treatment at the Texas Medical Center at our brand new facility!
