The artists traverse a gambit of genres from easy listening to punk rock, and all sorts of genres in between.

Spondylitis is a genetic rheumatoid arthritic condition that causes inflammation and fusion in the vertebrae of the spine. To date, has raised over ten thousand dollars for the cause, and raised awareness of the genetic disease, which the Centers For Disease Control says affects more than 2.7 million adults in the US.

“It means so much to me that we are able to do this benefit for the Spondylitis Association Of America each year,” says Lazlo, the founder of and the organizer of Banding Together. “My wife was diagnosed with spondylitis 15 years ago. I have watched the debilitating effects of this disease and the chronic pain and discomfort it causes.”

Throughout the broadcast people will be able to donate to the Spondylitis Association Of America (SAA) and download an exclusive compilation of previously unreleased songs. 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.
