Jim Crawford - Southland Band

As many of you know, Jim Crawford has been the saxophone player for our band for the last 15+ years.  No one can play a rock ‘n roll sax solo quite like Jim (especially when he does so while walking out into the crowd on the dance floor!).   Unfortunately, over the last few years Jim has been suffering from the ravages of diabetes and cancer.  He has never complained while going through the many operations and treatments he has had to endure, and until lately, he has somehow managed to still show up for most of our gigs. 

Recently, Jim informed us that he needs to step away from the band, as he can no longer commit to being available for our performances.  He has also been unable to work regularly, which has put a major strain on him financially.

We are more than just a band that plays music – we are a band of brothers.  We have shared each other’s joys and sorrows over the 20+ years that the band has been together. Therefore, we have established this GoFundMe site for Jim, in the hopes that between the band members and our fans, we can raise some money to help make things a bit easier for him.  Any amount would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
