I’ll Be There

This is a local (Aiken, SC) post, so I apologize to those in far away places. It was also written on August 30th, but I waited until the website was up and running.

Back on June 26th, Dr.Kent Cubbage, while walking on a road near his residence on a sunny afternoon,  was struck by a car, reportedly traveling at  65 miles per hour. Somehow, he survived, but his injuries were devastating and life-changing and his path to recovery will be long, difficult and expensive.


I met Kent shortly after moving to Aiken in 1999 and we played in a band together in 2001-2002.  He is a biology professor at a nearby college and has been active in local politics for several years.  We have a lot in common and we have shared each other’s ups and downs over the years and once had a helluva good time road tripping up to see RUSH in Raleigh-Durham, NCIMG_5337.jpg

I stopped by to visit with him again today and his attitude is great and his goal is to get back behind the drums and play with The Upshot Band, of which he is one of the founding members.

While there, I saw this flyer, (since updated in the link below) hanging by his bed and I wanted to use my network to promote the event.

If you are in the Aiken area, please consider attending this event. If you are not, please consider making a donation.

To quote Michael Jackson, “I’ll be there.”

Here is the link to the Upshot page: Rock For The Doc.

This event will sell out fast so if you want to go, sign up.

Some of the personnel are different, but here is The Upshot promotional video.
