Hi-Fi Memorial Concert

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Chicago lost a legend on Sept. 29 when Erik Kish passed away from a motorcycle accident. Hi-Fi & The Roadburners have been long time fixtures on the scene, and through music or Fear City Choppers, Erik converted a LOT of people to the cause of good music, good times, and a way of life we all believe in.

So at MayDay HQ we’re exceedingly proud that The Crombies have been invited to perform at the Hi-Fi Memorial Benefit concert. Get your tickets now for the show on Sunday, Nov. 6 at Double Door. There are over a dozen great bands playing, including the Bama Lamas, Big Daddy Sin, the Dyes, Kevin Flynn, Hillbilly Idols, The Avondale Ramblers, Lil’ Red, the Howlin’ Wolves, the Moondogs, Pearls Mahone & the One-Eyed Jacks, the Penthouse Playboys, Rockin’ Bill & The Wild Coyotes, Three Blue Teardrops, Tracer Bullet, and Wild Onion People.

It will be an event to remember, to remember a great guy, and we hope to see you there.

Dan Parry Memorial Fundraiser

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Something near and dear to us, on Friday, April 16 friends have organized a scholarship fundraiser at The Globe in Chicago to honor the late Dan Parry. Dan was one of those guys that everyone knew, he touched a lot of people and did a lot for a scene that really needed a kick in the ass. Wish we had a picture from the last night we rode home from In The Spirit – Dan asks JJ to be careful because the records in the box are worth more than the scoot… we still rode like assholes. Who would have guessed life could be so short?

We hope this is a night to make Dan proud – money is being raised to fund a scholarship for aspiring EMTs, Paramedics, and Firefighters in Chicago. Training for any of these trades requires a serious commitment, physically and financially, and the Dan Parry Memorial Scholarship seeks to make it easier for those who want to pursue their dreams of service. We need more of this.

JJ will be spinning, along with Eric from MODchicago and Ben from Windy City Soul Club/Rare $oul Millionaires. Expect to hear plenty of Dan’s favorites as we toast a guy who left too soon and remains dearly missed.  All are welcome, please spread the word. RSVP on facebook.
