Internet radio station and music website BlowUpRadio.com, Where NJ Rock Lives, continues its annual Banding Together: Benefit For The Spondylitis Association of America this October, once again bringing together some of the best local indie musicians from around the Garden State, and the world.
This year’s Banding Together webathon, with over 50 live performances, will be broadcast live on BlowUpRadio.com October 16th through 18th. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all performances will be done remotely from the performers’ homes or rehearsal spaces to stay within social distancing guidelines.
“I know 2020 has been a very trying year for all of us but after talking to a number of musicians and listeners, I knew we had to try to continue this annual tradition,” said Lazlo, the founder of BlowUpRadio.com and the organizer of Banding Together. “We realized that bringing people together for a weekend long music festival may be exactly what we need to take our minds off everything going on in the world, and it is for a great cause that is so personal to me as my wife suffers from anylosing spondlytis (AS) and I know first hand the debilitating effects of this disease and the chronic pain and discomfort it causes.
“I am thankful that so many musicians were eager to be a part of this remotely,.” He added. “This benefit is only possible because of the amazing musicians involved.”
During the broadcast, listeners will have opportunities to donate to the Spondylitis Association Of America (SAA) and download an exclusive compilation featuring previously unreleased songs from dozens of featured artists. All money raised will go directly to the Spondylitis Association Of America (SAA) to fund research and provide the programs and services the spondylitis community has come to rely on.
