Late Springsteen Bandmate To Be Paid Tribute At Live Event

(PR) This year, The Troubadour will see a gathering of legends and up-and-comers in celebration of the life of Danny Federici, the beloved keyboardist and accordion player from Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band for over 35 years on Sunday, April 19.

The musician passed away due to complications from melanoma last year. Organized by Federici's son Jason and his bandmate Jason Heath, the evening will feature performances from Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, Jason Heath and the Greedy Souls, Joe Purdy, Chris Seegfried, Chris Joyner, Alexa George, and special guests. The event will be hosted by acclaimed comedian and cancer survivor Robert Schimmel.

All net proceeds will benefit Dannyfund.org, a melanoma research charity founded by Danny and Jason Federici to help raise awareness and find a cure for melanoma. Federici's former bandleader Springsteen appeared in a Super Bowl TV-spot this year to introduce Dannyfund to the world. Jason Heath and the Greedy Souls' "A Fighter's Lullaby," an exclusive track dedicated to Federici, is available for free download from the site. On April 19, Angelenos can come together to celebrate the life of this talented musician for a good cause at the Troubadour. - http://www.dannyfund.org
