On August 29, 2015, premier Filipino American music bands in the Tri-State area will get together for a one night concert at Perlas New York, 69-09 Roosevelt Ave. Woodside, NY 11377. The concert which will start at 8:30 pm, is an effort to honor and raise funds to help a fellow Fil Am musician, drummer AJ Roxas.
AJ, an active member of the music community, while vacationing in Barcelona, Spain early this summer, went into cardiac arrest and was rushed to the hospital where he stayed in the Intensive Care Unit for 2 weeks. Though his current condition is considered stabilized, he is still in an induced coma state and is recovering really slowly.
Due to the high costs of travelling to Spain and the growing medical bills, family members are trying to bring him back here in the United States where he could stay in a medical rehab facility close to his family and friends.
The costs of medical airlift and medical expenses related to his stay in Spain is a lot for the family to handle alone. That’s why, his friends in the community are asking for your support to help his family bring him back home.
The bands performing in this Aug. 29 Concert include:
- Take the Stage
- Guns & Moses
- Run of Luck
- Michelle / Boy n’ Friends
- Rock Jeepney
- and more
There’s a $10 cover charge and 100% of the proceeds will go this cause.
