This is dedicated to a couple of amazing musicians.
Danny Uzilevsky and Erik Smyth were leaving a gig traveling south on 101 when they collided with a drunk driver who got on the freeway going the wrong way. Both vehicles were traveling 65 m.p.h. upon impact. Thankfully they survived this horrific head-on collision and have been treated at Santa Rosa General Hospital.

As most of you know, being a professional musician doesn't pay very well,.. in the first place, and neither Danny or Erik are even able to work much, if at all, after receiving severe injuries from this horrible accident. They will each incur living and/or survival expenses and precious equipment damages that will most likely exceed $100,000.This is made impossible, when neither Danny or Erik, due to their injuries, are able to work to cover these hefty expenses.

We are grateful for any & all donations - No donation is too small or too great. Help us to to help them get through this event with grace & as much ease a possible.We all know that life is filled with uncertain circumstance but WE as a community can do our best to keep the love strong & help those we love in the hardest of times.

Danny and Eric, my prayers go out to you both. If there is any thing I can do to help you guys out don't hesitate to let me know. Just moved to Reno, so I feel like I am far away, but I'm there for you if you need anything. Take care and stay in touch.
