Band Together II: Cancer Benefit.with a Twist.
Benefit to be held at UNB Student Union Building Cafeteria December 2, 2005
In 2004, local Fredericton musician Randy Cable was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer at the age of 29. He was the lead singer and guitarist for the band 'Naked Days'. During his fight with the disease, he was hospitalized for over 8 months. While living in the hospital, he set up a recording studio in his room and recorded enough tracks for a CD, with songs that highlighted his experience with cancer and other songs that uplifted him from the past. His goal was to produce a CD in which all of the proceeds would go for cancer research and patient services. He enlisted the help of many friends, family members and local musicians to help make this dream a reality. Unfortunately, he passed away before finishing the project, so the community is coming together to see it through to completion. A benefit concert is being held at the Student Union Building on the University of New Brunswick Campus in order to raise the money needed to produce Randy's CD. Proceeds from the CD will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. Local bands participating include All of Green, Melonworks, Hot Toddy, Grand Theft Bus and a special Naked Days tribute band featuring the songs of Randy Cable, performed by various guest singers/friends.
