Date:11/1/2007

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The Maverick Saloon will host a tribute to the late songwriter Warren Zevon on December 8, 2007 from 4 PM until 7 PM to raise research money and awareness for Mesothelioma, the disease that claimed the life of the much loved and respected troubadour. Tickets for the show are $35.00 and will be available November 5, 2007 at The Maverick Saloon or by going on the web to http://www.syvjoneshouse.com.

The proceeds from the show will go to The Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation http://www.curemeso.org/ located in Santa Barbara, CA and the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization http://www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org/ . Several well-known artists who played with Zevon will join Zevon's son ADAO National Spokesperson Jordan Zevon at the world famous saloon to perform Warren Zevon songs. Zevon's final album The Wind earned two posthumous Grammy Awards in 2004 for Best Rock Vocal Performance and Best Contemporary Folk album.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Mike Campbell will be performing with his band The Dirty Knobs. Campbell, best known for his work as the lead guitar player with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, has appeared on several Warren Zevon albums including the Grammy winning The Wind. Santa Barbara resident Kenny Edwards will also be on hand to play. Edwards, folk-rock veteran and co-founder of the Stone Poneys with Linda Ronstadt and Bryndle with Karla Bonoff, recorded several hits for Ronstadt that were written by Warren Zevon, including Carmelita, Hasten Down the Wind, and Poor Poor Pitiful Me. In addition, Edwards played on some of Warren's albums as well, including Zevon's best-known album Excitable Boy. Joining Campbell and Edwards will be LA based multi-instrumentalist and composer Matt Cartsonis. Cartsonis has written several scores for film, television and various commercials. Cartsonis has worked with both Zevon and Edwards. Cartsonis also has the distinction of playing with Zevon on Zevon's final tour before he was diagnosed with mesothelioma. Finally, rounding out the roster of players who worked with Zevon is Los Angeles based singer songwriter Phil Cody who spent a significant amount of time in the 1990s touring with Zevon and shares stories and insights in the new Zevon biography "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" by former Zevon spouse Crystal Zevon.

Several up and coming young artists from the central coast, including Crosby Loggins, Paul Cartwright and the Nathan McEuen Band will open the show with their renditions of Zevon songs. For more information please contact Karen or Kara Jones, 805 688-7786 or go to http://www.syvjoneshouse.com.
