Mason Jennings:

Chad Weis is like a brother to me. He and I have traveled the world together. He has been my sound engineer and tour manager for 5 years. He is hands down one of the most kind, compassionate, loving, talented, and positive humans I have ever met. I feel blessed to know him.

Two Months ago he underwent emergency surgery to remove a rare fungal mass in his sinuses that had slowly broken his nasal bones and the bone protecting his brain. Without going into details, the surgery was massive. It was a total success and he is now on the mend. But, his health insurance only covered a tenth of the bill. So, on top of the fact that he has been laid up and unable to tour this Fall, he is also now saddled with an enormous hospital bill.

That is where we come in. Let’s help get Chad back up and running! Please come join us for a wonderful night filled with music, love, and hope at First Avenue January 17. All proceeds will go to a foundation my friend Myles Kennedy started to help musicians without insurance. The foundation will put all the night’s proceeds towards paying down Chad’s bills.
