Live ROCK from:
A benefit for Don Jarvis - a local hero.
Since I met Donny in 2001, he's been a huge supporter of local music and Building James. He's made flyers for us, organized gigs, and has been to tons of our shows. Don is a great guy, and a solid friend.
Don Jarvis chose to join the military and serve his country. Unfortunately he suffered a serious brain injury when an IED exploded under his vehicle while serving overseas.
This is from a recent conversation I had with him:
"I rolled over 300 pounds of explosives, directly under my driver seat. Causing my truck to do a wheelie in the air. When we landed we broke the front axle causing the truck to roll unto the drivers side of the vehicle... I was the driver of the vehicle."
"I have a mild traumatic brain injury and a right knee injury, but it could be worse. I'm not brain dead, just part of the brain doesn't work like it should. That's all. Memory, random headaches, sensitive to light, sleep issues and things of that nature."
Don has been featured a lot in the media over the past couple months, and even received a huge hero's welcome when he flew in (hundreds of people).
Don lives in Newbury, and we're organizing a home-town concert for his benefit at The Grog on November 17.
More details will become available soon, but please don't miss this chance to come out and support a local hero!
