Benefit for local musician hit by car


We just caught word of this late last night from Dan Magnum of Forever Endeavor Productions. Tommy, drummer of A Day Away and Springfield’s famous drumming group The Cadence, was hit by a car…yes I said hit by a car. He’s hurt really bad and needs support from the music community to help him get by. 

Fellow musicians to the rescue. A bunch of big names in the Springfield music scene are working together to put on a benefit show to help raise money so Tommy can pay some bills while he’s laid up.

Full show info, flyer, and A Day Away’s blog post after the jump…

From A Day Away’s latest blog entry:

For those of you who didn’t hear, Tommy (our little drummer buddy) was struck by a car and injured last week while on a trip to LA. He suffered abroken leg and a concussion as well as numerous cuts and bruise.

Tommy’s back home now, but he’s gonna be laid up for awhile…so we’re throwing a benefit show to raise money so T-Dizzle can pay his bills! Here’s the info!!

Friday, Oct 17th @ Sparrows in Springfield, MO


Also playing:

Brannon Powers (formerly of happyendings/The Whitest Light)
& Handmedowns.

Doors are @ 7pm and admission is $10 at the door with all proceeds going straight to Tommy. 

Please come out if you can. Not only do we have the power to help out our friend, but this will be a rare chance to see some of Springfield’s top acts playing unplugged.

Please help and attend if you can. If you can’t make it, please contact A Day Away at their myspace to see about donating directly to Tommy. Please help and spread word!
