Next Showcase will be March 2, 2024

Poor Boys Delight
Poor Boy’s Delight was originally a trio born out of the Auntie’s Bookstore jam, with LaVona
Reeves, Phil Kleinman and Kirk Rowbotham. As a trio, they also played at the Spokane Fall Folk
Festivals and Showcases, but their true “delight” was playing at Saint Joseph’s Rehab Center
for Alzheimer’s patients and temporary residents recovering from surgery—many of whom
knew Dr. Rowbotham as their physician and loved him. When he unexpectedly passed in
2019, LaVona and Phil decided to keep the group going as Kirk would have wanted them to do.
Delayed by Covid, the Sacred Heart summer concert series in Kirk’s honor was launched in
2022. This year they will open the concert series on June 20, 2024 at noon. They now play
primarily as a duo with LaVona on vocals and guitar and Phil on dobro, banjo, or mandolin and
vocals. They like to invite guest performers to play with them. Joining them for her first
showcase will be LaVona’s grand-daughter Keira, on vocals. Philip Brown will be playing fiddle.
