Back Burner Blues Band
When Joey Altman was approached by Meals On Wheels to help provide entertainment for a fundraising event back in 1998, he put his musical talents—and those of his colleagues—to use. What was originally a one-time “chef band” performance became a Bay Area regularity. The Back Burner Blues Band is a philanthropic group of talented musicians, each with a service industry background, who often perform pro bono at local (and occasionally national) food-oriented fundraisers.
