Flyleaf to perform benefit concert for late soundman this Sunday
will perform a special benefit concert this Sunday, 20th May at The Palladium Ballroom in Dallas, TX in honour of their late soundman Rich Caldwell. Rich had been with the band with the band for a long time and was killed in a fatal car crash near his home in College Station, TX. When the news arrived that Rich had died, Flyleaf made arrangement to honour their friend and to raise money to help support his wife Katy and two year old son Kirby. All proceeds are going directly to his family to help them in the aftermath of his passing.
Singer Lacey Sturm comments: “Rich was our brother. His life and love have forever changed the world for the better. From the first showcase we played, every heart we touched with Flyleaf’s music was as much Rich’s victory as it was any band member’s. There is not one person behind the scenes, or on stage, who deserves to be honored more than Rich Caldwell. I’m only sorry that the honor we are giving is so overdue.”
Guitarist Sameer Bhattacharya echoes that sentiment, “It’s hard to believe that this is real. Rich was like the sixth member of Flyleaf. He was our brother and dear friend. We’re here for Katy and Kirby, our family. We want to help in any way we can.”
Tickets are priced at $30 and the show begins at 8pm after doors open an hour earlier.
