Reel Big Fish donating proceeds of its Aspen show to victims and families of Aurora shooting
In a show of compassion that's definitely worth emulating, we've just received word that Reel Big Fish, which played a show at the Ogden Theatre last week, is in the process of donating the proceeds of its show the following night at the Belly-Up in Aspen to the Colorado Organization of Victim Assistance. The outfit's booking agency, the Agency Group, is also getting into the act and contributing a donation to the fund as well. Page down to read a statement from the group.
A Message From Reel Big Fish:
Last Thursday night, Reel Big Fish played to an amazing Denver crowd. The night was buzzing with positive energy as the last notes of the horns blared and the audience poured into the dark to head home. Little did we all know; right down the street, a tragedy of unspeakable horror was unfolding, in Aurora. Because of the love that Denver always shows us, we would like to do what we can for the friends and families of the victims. Proceeds from our show at the Belly-up in Aspen, CO last Friday July 20 will go to The Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance. Our booking agency, The Agency Group will also be making a donation. If you wish to donate or learn more about the organization visit www.coloradocrimevictims.org. All our love goes out to the people of Denver in this time of sorrow. Music and dancing is good medicine. Be with friends and boogie!
