Pig Roast 2011!

On Saturday, September 24th, 2011, Faiz Zeppelin, The Blue Line Riders, and The Columbines performed live at a Pig Roast benefit in Chicago, Illinois. This particular Pig Roast has been going on for a half a decade, and was put on by forum member RFF, his family, friends, and neighbors.

The Pig Roast was a benefit for Friends of McPherson whom help support inspired education at a local Chicago elementary school, National MS Society, and the The Merit School of Music, which is a non-profit school that nurtures the talents of under-privileged youth. Donations were made in memory of Eric Jasper.

Faiz Zeppelin, featuring an all star lineup of PRF Musicians can be seen here performing live in front of a near sellout crowd at The Hideout in Chicago, IL on Saturday April 30th, 2011. Following an opening set from Chicago’s The Columbines, and an amazing 12 year old guest lead singer, Faiz Zeppelin took the stage with a wild abandon, launching into a slammed together run of We’re Gonna Groove, Heartbreaker, and Communication Breakdown. Fists were pumping high in the air.
