Reel Big Fish donate proceeds from Colorado show to Aurora Theater shooting victims & families

Music News | By on Jul 23rd, 2012

Reel Big Fish played in Denver on Thursday when the Aurora, Colorado shootings took place. Now they are donating proceeds from that show to the families and victims of that tragic event. Talk about a good deed! I expect more bands to follow in their footsteps in the days to come, if they haven’t already. The full band statement is below:

A Message From Reel Big Fish:

Last Thursday night, Reel Big Fish played to an amazing Denver crowd. The night was buzzing with positive energy as the last notes of the horns blared and the audience poured into the dark to head home. Little did we all know; right down the street, a tragedy of unspeakable horror was unfolding, in Aurora. Because of the love that Denver always shows us, we would like to do what we can for the friends and families of the victims. Proceeds from our show at the Belly-up in Aspen, CO last Friday July 20 will go to The Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance. Our booking agency, The Agency Group will also be making a donation. If you wish to donate or learn more about the organization visit www.coloradocrimevictims.org. All our love goes out to the people of Denver in this time of sorrow. Music and dancing is good medicine. Be with friends and boogie!

Much love,

Reel Big Fish
