Please join us for a family-friendly musical celebration and fundraiser honoring the life of Justin Kreider at Putnam Place. All funds raised will benefit his surviving family: wife Melissa and children Allie and Dylan.  The event will feature live music by Waller Road and Dog Star Orchestra, as well as catering by local restaurants, a silent auction, raffles for gift baskets and a 50/50 raffle.
Justin was a frequent concertgoer in the jam band scene, an enthusiastic lover of the Grateful Dead and Phish, so we’re honoring his legacy by holding a live concert. Ken Kesey once said that, “No one reaches across the distance and puts their hands on your shoulder like the Grateful Dead!” We are lucky to belong to such an incredible and generous community and now is a moment to come together.
All friends, family, community members, music-lovers, and of course Phish and Deadheads from across the region – please join us to make this event a success and support Justin’s family. spread the word, or bring a friend. Reach out and let people know about the items that are being auctioned (soon to be posted!), there is going to be a lot of great stuff up, and people who may not be able to attend can still participate by reaching out to us through messenger. And for those friends who may be too far away to attend in person, we will be streaming the event live.
“Inspiration, move me brightly. Light the song with sense and color; Hold away despair. More than this I will not ask, faced with mysteries dark and vast, statements just seem vain at last. SOME RISE, some fall, some climb, to get to Terrapin.”
Waller Road performs all types of rock covers ranging from classic rock to today’s favorites.  The band features Derik Hodson, Brett Roker, Dereck Buchner, Chad Jorgensen, Kenny Morgan and Mr. Paul Hodson.
