Sixties bands reunite — and contemporary artists exhibit — to support a good cause

From the Casper Star-Tribune:

Recovery Rally is the annual fundraiser of the 12-24 Club, an organization that provides help for drug and alcohol addictions. This year, the rally committee pulled together several of the biggest bands from Casper in the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.

Several bands will be performing, including The Eddies & Butterfat (now the No Class Reunion Band), the NoVells, Chinook and the JD Blues Band.

Special guests include members of the bands BC and the Cavemen, The Monday People and Arnolt and the Raspberries.

The Rally is from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19, at the Parkway Plaza in Casper. Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 at the door; available at Sonic Rainbow, Casper Events Center, S.A.M.E. Music and the 12-24 Club.

For tickets, donations and information, call Dan at 259-5263.

Art show: Some of the former band members playing at the Recovery Rally now make their living as artists. A show of eight artists — four from the reunited bands, four from the local area — will accompany the Rally. The show will open TODAY at the Parkway Plaza and the art will be auctioned SATURDAY. Proceeds will benefit the 12-24 Club.

Internationally-shown artist Paul Huber will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of an original oil painting to the club.

The After Party: This will feature art sales, music and a chance to reconnect with old friends. It will be THURSDAY at the Wolcott Galleria, 136 S. Wolcott, in the old Odd Fellows Building. The party is being held in conjunction with a free open house from 5 to 6:30 p.m. to celebrate the addition of the Odd Fellows building to the National Register of Historic Places. Advance tickets are $10, $12 at the door; available at any of the Wolcott Galleria Merchants. Proceeds from the after party go to the 12-24 Club. Call Charles at 267-8231 for tickets or more information.
