DO IT FOR THE KIDS! Proceeds from every download of "Saint Louis Blues" by the Funky Butt Brass Band will go the the St. Louis Blues' charity "Blues For Kids."

Blues for Kids, the charitable trust of the St. Louis Blues, has a mission to positively impact programs and services that improve health and wellness of youth in the St. Louis area. Thanks to the commitment of Blues players, alumni, volunteers and fans, Blues for Kids has contributed more than $3 million to the St. Louis community.

Blues for Kids focuses on four areas of giving, which include cancer care and awareness, health and wellness, education and youth hockey development. For more information, visit www.nhl.com/blues/community/blues-for-kids

"Saint Louis Blues" was composed by W. C. Handy and published in September 1914. It remains a fundamental part of jazz musicians' repertoire. It was also one of the first blues songs to succeed as a pop song. It has been performed by numerous musicians in various styles, from Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith to Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Guy Lombardo, and the Boston Pops Orchestra. The Funky Butt Brass Band, as representatives of St. Louis, are proud to contribute this second-line version as a charity download.
