New Jersey Station Hosts 15th Annual Virtual Benefit Concert for the Spondylitis Association Of America
"Your #1 Source For All Things In New Jersey's Local Original Music Scene," BlowUpRadio.com, continues its annual Banding Together: Benefit For The Spondylitis Association of America, bringing together some of the best local indie musicians from around the Garden State.
On October 14th through 16th, over 30 artists will perform 30 minute sets of their music live on BlowUpRadio.com's internet radio station. The artists traverse a gambit of genres from easy listening to punk rock, and all sorts of genres in between.
During these times when enhanced safety protocols are necessary at live concerts, the Banding Together webathon is unique in that it is strictly virtual, so you can hear it from the comfort of your own home, and all artists will be performing remotely.
Spondylitis is a genetic rheumatoid arthritic condition that causes inflammation and fusion in the vertebrae of the spine. To date, BlowUpRadio.com 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.
"While it is sad that there is still no cure for ankylosing spondylitis, it means so much to me that we continue to be able to bring together so many amazing artists for our annual benefit for the Spondylitis Association Of America," says Lazlo, the founder of BlowUpRadio.com and the organizer of Banding Together. "My wife was diagnosed with spondylitis 16 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.
