Rob Barraco and Jeff Mattson will Band Together for Ally (Vibes, Bamboozle, Bethel Woods Ticket Raffle Too)

On Wednesday night, the Homestead in Oyster Bay, Long Island will host Band Together for Ally. This event will raise funds for Allyson Strong, who was diagnosed with small cell cervical cancer last year and also raise awareness for those afflicted with the disease. Dark Star Orchestra’s Rob Barraco and Jeff Mattson will perform with Red Flannel Hash (Barraco was an original member of the group, which came together in the 1970’s along with Allyson’s father John Strong), along with Lee Finkelstein (Funk Filharmonik/Blues Brothers), Jim Kempster and Patrick “Jake” Cummings. The night also will include a raffle with such prizes as: a pair of Gathering of the Vibes tickets, a Brian Moore iGuitar, season tickets to Bethel Woods, Dark Star Orchestra tickets, Bamboozle tickets, Jackie Greene tickets, Tiffany and Co. pendants and much more.

Small Cell Cervical Cancer doesn’t have a chance in hell now!!! You guys just rose the awareness of a disease, that less than 3% of women who have cervical cancer get. I can’t thank you ENOUGH for that. I hope you keep the awareness going! With tears in my eyes, I hope you realize how GRATEFUL we are.
Keep the light shining on Ally….....Vibe tix will be drawn EARLY July, feel free to contact me for purchasing them! gather4ally@gmail.com
Peace and Prayers…..
