On Feb 28, 2018 - Man Forever leader and Oneida drummer, John Colpitts was hospitalized following a serious car accident in Los Angeles. He is back home in NYC recovering and improving every day. He will be unable to play for at least a few months and has been sustaining himself on funds from his family and the great organization The Actors Fund (they support all performing artists)

Unfortunately his living expenses and medical bills are starting to pile up - and we have established this fund to assist with this area of his life.

We at Thrill Jockey records wanted to help John who is a friend, a remarkable musician, as well as an essential creative mind.

Please join us in helping John.

Our Goal is an ambitious one, but you can give with the knowledge that if, for any reason, John is fortunate enough not to require all the funds we raise - he will support some of the great organizations that help musicians and performing artists in need.
