11th Annual Banding Together Benefit for the Spondylitis Association Of America to feature 4 Concerts, where NJ rock lives, once again brings together some of the best local indie musicians for the eleventh annual Banding Together: Benefit For The Spondylitis Association of America this fall.

This year Banding Together will feature 4 concerts between September 30th and October 21st at various venues in New Jersey with all money raised going directly to the Spondylitis Association Of America to fund research and provide the programs and services the spondylitis community has come to rely on.

Spondylitis is a genetic rheumatoid arthritic condition that causes inflammation and fusion in the vertebrae of the spine. To date has raised thousands of dollars for the cause, and raised awareness of the genetic disease which the Centers For Disease Control says affects more than 2.7 million adults in the US.

"This is a very personal benefit for me as my wife, Naomi, suffers from ankylosing spondylitis (AS).", says Lazlo, the founder of and the organizer of Banding Together, "I have seen the debilitating effects of this disease and the chronic pain and discomfort it causes. This benefit is the least I can do to help my wife, and over two million others who suffer from AS and its associated diseases."

Concerts will take place at the following venues:

Dragonfly Music & Coffee Café (Somerville) – Saturday September 30th

Brighton Bar (Long Branch) – Friday October 13th

Espresso Joe’s (Keyport) - Saturday October 14th

The Clash Bar (Clifton) - Saturday October 21st

Artists scheduled to perform at Banding Together concerts include: Blisstique, Bruce Tunkel, Catherine Wacha, DDA, Deena & Jon (The Cucumbers), Frank Patrouch, Jenny Cat (Jenny & The Felines), Jersey Drive, Joe Schroeck, Jon Caspi & The First Gun, Jonathan Andrew, Josh Bicknell, Joshua Van Ness, Lance Scott Greene, Laree Cisco, Match Party, Miss Ohio, Newfoundman, Paul Rosevear, Peter Prasa, Retroglyphs, Rhonette Smith (Centennials), September's Ghost, Shotgun Bill, Son Of Dov, The 65's, The Extras Inc, The May Darlings, Tommy Strazza, and more TBA.

(artists performing are subject to change)

Lineups for each show are below.

“Last year, when we had lost our Internet radio station (which has since been restored), we changed our annual benefit from a webathon to a series of live live concerts. As we had our best year ever in raising money for the Spondylitis Association Of America, we have decided to continue with this format. However, we do plan to do some special programming on our station in October to help promote the Spondylitis Association Of America and the wonderful things they do.”

The Spondylitis Association Of America (SAA) is a non-profit organization that was the first and remains the largest resource for people affected by spondylitis. Through their efforts, they help advance education, research and treatment for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and related diseases. For more than 30 years’ SAA has dedicated all of its resources to help improve the lives of people coping with spondylitis. is WhereNJRockLives. For almost 17 years they have been a website & Internet radio station supporting New Jersey’s local original music scene, by playing predominantly unsigned New Jersey bands.
