Drummer, Brad Smith in Serious Auto Accident

You may have heard that our friend, brother, and drummer has been in a serious car accident.  We learned yesterday that he has dozens of broken bones, including wrists and ankles that will require months of healing and physical therapy.  Brad was in surgery this morning to clean and set compound fractures in his arms and legs.  His jaw is broken, lung is punctured, and he'll be in a back brace for a while until progress determines his next steps.

It's a miracle in itself that Brad is alive today.  We're praying for another miracle that he's able to heal and continue his passion for music.  In addition to playing drums for Deathrow Bodeen, Brad also gave drum lessons (for little or no charge) and played guitar.  He just loves music and enjoys being able to share that gift with others.

We're planning to do some benefit concerts on his behalf.  Things are too early for concrete plans, but we'll likely be reaching out to some local venues, bands, and sponsors so we can attempt to alleviate part of the financial strain this situation will be putting on Brad.  If you're interested in helping, or have some fundraising ideas please message us on Facebook or at deathrowbodeen.com. 

We've started a GoFundMe page at: https://www.gofundme.com/4e80vls

Please share and take a few moments to show Brad you care, and help him on this journey to recovery.
