New Jersey internet radio station Where NJ Rock Lives, continues its annual Banding Together: Benefit For The Spondylitis Association of America, bringing together some of the best indie musicians from around the Garden State, and the world.

On Friday October 13th through Sunday October 15th, over 30 artists will perform half hour sets of their music on's station. The artists traverse a gambit of genres from easy listening to punk rock, and all sorts of genres in between.

All money raised will go directly to the Spondylitis Association Of America (SAA) 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 over ten thousand 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.

“When I started Banding Together in 2007 after my wife was diagnosed with Spondylitis, I was amazed at the outpouring of support from musicians that wanted to help,” says Lazlo, the founder of and the organizer of Banding Together. "Here we are now in our 16th year, and I am still overwhelmed by the positive support of musicians, and people who donate each year to help find a cure for this debilitating disease.”
