COMING JERSEY SHORE ATTRACTIONS: Friends for Danny Federici Benefit at Bar Anticipation on Saturday May 9 By Calvin Schwartz
When I was told about this event, it was one of those “have to be there “experiences for several personal reasons. Of course it’s Danny Federici, a Jersey native and part of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. In 2014, Federici was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the E Street Band. Danny died on April 17, 2008 in New York City after three years fighting melanoma. So the benefit is to raise money for Melanoma research. The Danny Fund, part of The Melanoma Research Alliance was founded and named after him.
Melanoma personally hit home for me 15 years ago when a dear friend, a powerful, black belt karate, part time bar bouncer and gentle giving soul had a small sore on his arm which became the entry point of this horrific disease. He passed away within a few months, devastating his family and friends. I had never been that close to melanoma. I saw his family unravel and his father soon pass away seemingly from the overwhelming loss and tragedy.
So the fund raiser for Danny Federici , in Belmar, close to E Street is the perfect place and time to celebrate his life and to raise consciousness and funds to fight a terrible disease.
