Jackson Rathbone To Play Tribute To Spencer Bell

Jackson Rathbone To Play Tribute To Spencer Bell

Jackson Rathbone is taking over Texas for a good cause — playing tribute to his lost pal Spencer Bell and to raise awareness for adrenal cancer.

100 Monkeys (Jackson‘s band) will host a tribute concert this coming April in Dallas, Texas.

The Stevedores, Drew and the Medicinal Pen, and Tin Tin Can are just three of the bands that will join 100 Monkeys to raise awareness for adrenal cancer and celebrate the life and music of Spencer Bell including playing songs from Spencer’s albums.

In addition to hearing great music, fans will also be able enter special contests with prizes that include meeting the band and showing off their artistic abilities at the concert itself. Contests include a music video contest, a t-shirt design contest (which will be sold and produced through the Spencer Bell Legacy Project), a raffle with celebrity donated items, and a special auction.

Check out all the details at Artists Supporting a Cure for Cancer.

  • Thx.

    Thank you so much for promoting this, JJ!! It’s a great cause. Jackson and BenG of 100 Monkeys were great friends with Spencer and their bandmate Ben Johnson was best friends with Spencer (they all went to high school together) so obviously this cause is very important to them. Ben was actually a member of The Stevedores with Spencer before he died. For the Legacy shows Ben actually does double duty playing with 100 Monkeys and The Stevedores. I wish like crazy I could afford to go to these shows. I’ve seen video clips of past shows and they sound like a great tribute to a great musician.

    Just to note, those who purchase their tickets to the show by January 31, 2010 will be entered into a drawing for balcony seats.
    Raffle tickets are now on sale and you do not need to be present at the concert to win. This also goes for the music video contest and the t-shirt contest.
    One other band not mentioned is The Kissing Club.
    So there will be quite a few indie bands to listen to at the shows.

    Hey – have a question for the 100 Monkeys and their upcoming performance at the Spencer Bell Legacy Concert —

    check out Portrait Magazine

    They will be running a feature article on the Legacy Concert and the 100 Monkeys involvement in an upcoming issue – and they’re asking for questions from the readers.

    So have a question? Now’s your time to ask!

    We have added a very creative contest, one might think it was formed due to one of the band members proclivity to wear a hat. Maybe it was subconsciously on this person’s mind, maybe not. The contest is titled Mad Hatter and details have been posted. See the information at the contest page http://www.asccnow.com/contests.html

    You may want to know that Kelly Garrett Rathbone will be at the Deep Ellum Arts Festival on April 2-4, 2010 in Dallas, TX. She is creating a collection specifically for this festival and has generously agreed to donate part of her profits to adrenal cancer research. http://www.asccnow.com/events.html

    For those Spencer Bell fans, a new Spencer Bell CD and Legacy t-shirt will be available at the concert. The CD will also be available at Bamboozle, a music festival held on May 1 and 2 at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in NJ. 100Monkeys will perform there on May 1

    The details for the online auctions have been posted at http://www.asccnow.com. The auctions go live on February 22nd and those attending the show can bid.

    Exciting news for 100Monkeys fans!! They will be playing at Poor David’s Pub in Dallas on Friday night before the SBL concert. During Twicon, the boys played there and it was just fun for both the audience and them.

    Show is on April 23rd. Doors open at 8, show at 9pm. Tickets are $14 and are on sale now. Frontgate tickets is the site to purchase tickets.

    Portrait magazine is having a poll for their March cover and 100Monkeys is on the list. The right hand side of the site, http://www.portraitmagazine.net/ has the place to vote. Only one vote per IP address though. This is the article having 100Monkeys talk about their involvement in Spencer Bell Legacy concert and their tour.

    Just a reminder that the auctions for the Spencer Bell Legacy concert go LIVE this Monday. There is an auction for a meet and greet with the bands at the evening show, dinner with the bands, or you can interview them. Go to http://www.sblauctions.com/ to register and them come back on Monday to bid.

  • Debbie

    I mentioned that the auctions for the Spencer Bell Legacy concert are LIVE. What I neglected to say is that you get to bring one friend to share the fun with if you have the winning bid. So it makes sense for you and your friend to pool your resources to have a higher bid

    Additionally, I did not describe some of the raffle items. And please note that you do NOT need to be present to win.
    One of the items makes me really wish that I am not one of the organizers of this event…..someone will walk away with a signed 100Monkeys band portrait (note that all the bands will have a portrait including The Stevedores!) If you have heard of or been to a Bowling for Soup show, they donated a signed guitar. Simple Plan has donated autographed photos. How about this gem…a Kelly Rathbone one time only designed shirt signed by band. And be sure to check out the designs done for 100Monkeys by Punk You Chucks, because you can have your own unique Spencer Bell Legacy sneakers designed by them. http://punkyourchucks.com/

    I wanted to thank everyone who participated in the auctions. It was nice that so much was raised for a good cause.
