Lousy Break, a real New Jersey Punk band, put on a show to raise money for The Unsung Heroes.
The original benefit was held at Doc's in, NJ but the gig got cut early by the bar. Since four bands were left out, not getting a chance to play, they did a second concert at The Brighton Bar in Long Branch, New Jersey, through the help of CoJack Productions. Good lads…
Bands that donated their time and energy to this double event were:
John, from Lousy Break proudly announces: “All together we raised about $3000 for THE UNSUNG HEROES HELPING HEROES. Just as importantly there’s a lot more awareness about the 9/11 toxic cloud and the health issues that are still getting worse.”
From these great benefit shows, they are producing a DVD that's being made about the Unsung Heroes, with music and interviews of the bands, We’ll have more on that when it arrives.
