In August 2017 our singer and beloved friend Matt Bencke was diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer at the age of 45. He died a few weeks later, leaving behind his loving wife and two wonderful daughters. We did not give up, and decided to join the fight against this terrible disease.
In October of that year, and for three years in a row, we have been organizing a yearly concert/fundraiser in his memory, and a series of concerts in some of Seattle and New York’s most iconic venues, devolving all proceeds to the fight against Pancreatic Cancer. We were blessed by the presence on stage of friends such as James LeBrie, singer of Dream Theater, and Dave Dederer, founder of The Presidents of the United States of America, among others.
You too can make a difference by attending one of our concerts, and making an online donation to our supported charity, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, by clicking the Donate button below. You can also download a Donation Form if you prefer to send a check. Any amount counts towards our fight!
