NEW DATE: ‘Save the Yen Wor’ benefit show rescheduled

The date has changed for Brent Amaker & The Rodeo‘s “Save the Yen Wor” concert. Here’s the new plan:

The “Save the Yen Wor” benefit show, originally scheduled for Wednesday April 13th, has been postponed due to Covid-19. A member of the band contracted Covid-19 this past weekend and will be unable to perform due to CDC isolation guidelines. The show has been rescheduled for Tuesday, May 17th. For those who were planning to attend the Yen Wor this coming Wednesday, Brent will be on hand to MC and host charity Karaoke with Loretta. Also look out for the possibility of additional special guests!

All proceeds from both events will be donated to assist the Yen Wor during a period of family illness and transition. Learn more about the community effort to save the Yen Wor at their Go Fund Me page. Feel free to donate prior to the event if you would like to help.

Please update your calendars now, and support this important West Seattle institution in any way that you can.

    Trying to understand the article. Is this benefit for the Karaoke bar or the restaurant? Maybe there was an earlier article I missed. Would ordering more often from the restaurant help? Thanks

    Does the karaoke event on Wednesday 4/13 still start at 6:00 PM? We were looking forward to that due to the early start time.

      As far as I know, but I’ll ping Brent to ask.

    I’m sorry to hear the family has experienced so many difficulties. I do not want to see anyone’s business go under. I do hope, however, that if they succeed in meeting their goal to reboot themselves that they will concentrate on improving the quality of the food. I have many fond memories of eating here way back in the 70s when it apparently had different owners. But that was then and this is now. I stopped eating/ordering out here a long time ago because the food quality was so sub-par (I’m being kind here).  Please use this as an opportunity to “build back better.”
