A Corageous Couple
If you have come to a Grub in the past six months or if you came to "City Sizzle" or if you came to our New Year's Eve party at our house then you probably have been wowed by the sounds of "Sourwood Suite." This duo has a unique sound and energy all their own. The duo is Faye Petree and Jeremy Wood. Jeremy also sings and plays in another duo, Serendipity. This duo is made up of Jeremy and his lovely wife Alison. This is where the sad news comes in: Alison has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Brain Cancer. Stunningly horrific. Paralyzingly sad. I spoke with Jeremy on the phone. He said that Alison has "good" days and "bad" days. And there are times when she goes manic and out-of-control. When that happens Jeremy will start singing one of the songs they sing together onstage. She calms down and begins singing with him. That's when I cried. So did he. This couple needs your help. This couple deserves your help.
This Sunday at the Blind Tiger in Greensboro starting at 2pm & going into the evening.
S.O.S. — Save Our Singer — Fundraisder for Alison & Jeremy Perkins-Wood
This is an event for the entire family and all proceeds will go to Alison and Jeremy to cover costs and expenses of cancer treatment. The music will be amazing. And there will be a Silent Auction. We want the whole community... especially our Grubbers to show up for this event. Let me just list some of the bands that will be at this event.
