Vinyl Music Hall Hosts A Benefit Concert, Auction & BBQ for Local Musician Joey Harrison

CANCER SUCKS! ....and local musicians, artists & foodies are banding together to make one family’s crappy situation just a little bit better. Friday September 9 from 6-11, Vinyl Music Hall hosts a benefit concert, auction and BBQ in support of a very special local bass player (most recently of Betsy Badwater & The Hillbilly Chrome & Tribe Zion). Joseph Harrison was diagnosed with stage four terminal bone and lung cancer in May of this year, just hours before he was to take the stage with BB&HBC at The Vinyl. Joseph has been married for 19 years to Lavinia Harrison, they have three children: Jacob, Joshua, and Grace. Joey just had his 2nd chemotherapy treatment and needs financial support.

The event includes music from 7 bands, including Encore, Precise, Tribe Zion, HOLLOWMAN BADWATER, The Jeff Glickman Trio, and Fat Lipped Fish, a fine-art/rock-n-roll memorabilia silent auction, temporary tattoos from Black Sparrow Tattoo Studio, door prizes, chances to win cash, freebies for all attendees, and a back yard BBQ. Cover charge for this all-ages event is only 5 dollars, and ALL proceeds from the event go directly to the Harrison family.

Sponsors include: Al Graham Photography, Blues Angel Music, Bob Burt Guitar Pedals, Black Sparrow Tattoo Studio, Custom Pins, Dirty South Glass, Innerlight Surf & Skate, Jay’s Gun Shop, Jef Bond Photographics, Paddy O’Leary’s Irish Pub, and many more are being added daily. Don’t miss this great show! Bring the whole family and support this special local musician!
