As a precursor to Fat Tuesday, the Raven Theater this weekend gets greasy with a benefit called Funk for Life. Sandwiched by the Speakeasy Saints from Humboldt and the Funk Revival Orchestra, a smoking 10-piece band from Oakland with New Orleans locals, is the guitarist Maxx Cabello Jr. Having toured up and down the West Coast, Cabello’s drawn compliments from John Lee Hooker and Guitar Shorty for his take-no-prisoners groove. He lights up the blues-lovin’ wine country when Funk for Life goes off on Tuesday, March 1, at the Raven Theater. 115 North St., Healdsburg. 7pm. $12–$15. 707.395.0124.
