Submitted by bigtikidude on December 09, 2010.
Show Announcements
Hey Everybody.

Doing a big benefit show to raise money for Eddie Bertrand. He's had a couple falls and broken his hips. Tim(HB Kahuna) and I are puttin together a big show of love for Eddie. The show will feature:
  • The Riptides (South Bay band - not Jason Lee and the RIP tides)
  • Outerwave
  • The Eliminators
  • Slacktone
  • The Insect Surfers
  • Secret Samurai
  • The Men Of Mystery
  • All Star Jam, doing songs of the Bel-Airs, and Eddie and the Showmen w/John Blair, Paul Johnson, Tim Fitzpatrick, John Benton, Jim Frias, and Matt Quilter (and possibly some other legends)
It will be at Don the Beachcomber in Sunset Beach Ca., 16278 Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach, CA, 92649, (562) 592-1321, on Sat. Feb. 5th. from 2 pm to 10 pm. We will be located in the back in the High Chiefs Room and Hidden Village. We will have many cool raffle items!

Make plans now. You won't want to miss this. If you really can't make it we will probably have a site, or Paypal account where you can donate to Eddie from afar. But please try to make it if you can. Also, if you want to do a tribute show in your area, and send the funds to Eddie, that would be excellent. If you want to send some merch from your band for the raffle, that would be great too.

Here is the link to the Eddie Benefit Facebook Page.

and while there you can go to the FBML page, to donate to his Fund.

Thanks everybody.

Please send me a PM or e-mail at Bigtikidude@yahoo.com
