This Sunday, local musicians are uniting to put on a benefit show for Orion Predko, a 4-year-old boy with Stage 4 cancer, at Will's Pub. Normally reserved for the monthly Southern Fried Sunday, the benefit features bands that fit the blues, country and roots rock genres normally showcases: Ben Prestage, Steve Garron and Deland's Beartoe are joined by a reunion set from Dirt McCoy & the Trailer Park Refugees. To help raise money for Orion and his family, many local businesses have donated prizes for a raffle, and artists have donated art for an art auction. Plus, Swine and Sons Provisions are supplying barbecue. The cover is $10, but dig deep if you can to help defray expenses associated with Orion's treatment.
