Hi Folks… Just a few modifications
Over the past few months I’ve been receiving emails asking “where’s the band man“? 
I’ve explained that one of the guys in the band had a very ill family member and we were
suspending the gigs while she underwent treatment.
Well the time has come to step this up a notch and we need your help!
  Ally is 24 years old. 
She just graduated in August from CW Post with her masters.
She was diagnosed with small cell cervical cancer in early September. This a rare cancer-with no specific protocol treatment. She had been aggressively treated at Sloan Kettering in New York. Her cancer did not recede, it actually has progressed. She now has metastasis to her liver.


The fundraiser is to help Ally and her family travel to gather information from top doctors in the country on how to proceed with her treatment; as well as to use for her future medical and living expenses.

We are still working out the details but as of now, it will be a $25 donation at the door. That will get you in for a buffet between 8 and 9pm with free music by a host of musicians donating their time including:

Rob Barraco & Jeff Mattson from Dark Star Orchestra w/Jeff Tobey
Of course the Red Flannel Hash band (past and present)
The Jim Pin Band 
The Folkadellics
The Mike Nugent Band
along with several other great bands/musicians that have to yet be confirmed.
I’ll be sending updates as these items get ironed out.    ( like this one )

If you don’t come to another show, come to this one…
I hope to see you all there!!!!!!!!!!
