What:Joey's Song 2014 Benefit Concert
THE KNOW-IT-ALL BOYFRIENDSFeat: Butch Vig and Duke Erikson from Garbage, Freedy Johnston
Joey’s Song is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to raising awareness and research funds to fight epilepsy. Joey’s Song was founded in 2010 following the death of 5 year old Joey Gomoll. Joey suffered from a rare and debilitating form of epilepsy known as Dravet’s Syndrome marked by daily seizures which were never able to be controlled. Despite the challenges Joey faced, he was a happy and vibrant child. While epilepsy had robbed Joey of the ability to use spoken words to communicate, Joey found a way to communicate with those around him through music. Joey loved to sing in his own way and to dance with anyone who would join him. Because of his love for music, our foundation produces and sells a series of CDs featuring rare and unreleased music from nationally renowned musicians to raise money for epilepsy research. You will find Grammy winners/nominees, CMA/ACM winners/nominees, Hall of Fame members and dozens of other award winning musicians represented on our CDs. Each and every artist on the Joey’s Song CDs has donated their art to help us make a difference in the lives of some other children who have also been dealt a rotten hand.

THE KNOW-IT-ALL BOYFRIENDS
The Know-It-All Boyfriends first performed when the band didn’t show up for Chris Vig’s christmas coctail party. Instead Jay Moran, Freedy Johnston, James “Pie” Cowan, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig decided to do an informal jam.
They had so much fun they decided to keep going and played some gigs around town. Their first official gig was a benefit for the club O’Cayz Corral that burned down in a fire on January 1st, 2001. Freedy dubbed them the Know-It-All Boyfriends, and since then they’ve done about one concert every 6 months.
They perform mostly covers and ‘Trans Am Rock’ from the 60s and 70s. They never rehearse, so it can be sloppy, but usually it’s a lot of fun.
