    This past Saturday night November 28th, Gary Wehrkamp (of the band Shadow Gallery, that headlined PPUSA in 2013) and his family lost their home and his place of business (recording studio) in a fire. No one was home at the time so everyone is safe, but they have lost everything but the clothes they were wearing that night & the gear Gary had with him at a Pink Floyd Tribute gig he was playing. His friends have rallied together to set up ways to raise funds for his family. It will take time for them to get back on their feet, including his main source of income, his recording studio/music teaching facility.

    Please help out our prog metal "brother". If you live in the northeast, please consider attending the benefit concert on December 26th at Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA (event link below), or if you can today which happens to be #GivingTuesday, please donate money through Mady's Angels non-profit http://www.madysangels.org/ by clicking on the Donate tab and put FIRE in the Paypal message. 100% of donations will go to the Wehrkamp family.
