It is always a beautiful thing to see the music community come together to help somebody out.

 So a  bevy of excellent bands took oveBand of Brothers playing a  fundraiser for Angela Entz at Legends, Oct. 21.

Dory and the Weathermen were among many bands playing a benefit concert for Angela Entz. Photo by Richard Amery She was on hand as well as her father and assorted family and friends and a lot people just eager to hear a lot of local talent.

 I only caught a few of the performers. I missed sets from Scotch Whiskey Limosine and bluesman Keith Woodrow but  I arrived in the middle of a set of classic rock from young, teenaged band, Beyond Crimson, who added some sweet melodies to Guns n’ Roses’ Sweet Child O’ Mine,” and AC DC’s “Highway to Hell” to name a few.

 I haven’t seen Band of Brothers for a while but caught a short set for the trimmed down trio which featured a excellent vocal harmonies and a lot of popular hits including the Beatles’ “Love Me Do,” as well as Pagliaro’s “What The Hell I’ve Got.”

 They also added CCR’s “Have You Seen the Rain,” some Tom Petty’s “Mary Jane’s Last Dance,” and The Eagles’“Take It Easy.”
 I only caught  the first few songs from Dory and the Weathermen who are always entertaining. They played tight versions of “Addicted to love” and “Bad Case Of Loving You,” and some more Beatles in “Day Tripper,” before I had to leave.
 Local hard rock/ metal band Quick Draw ended the night with a set of mostly original hard rock and metal music, Beyond Crimson play a benefit for Angela Entz. Photo by Richard Amerywhich drew heavily from the ’90s alternative rock and metal.

But they also added some innovative covers including putting a metal twist  to Dead or Alive’s ’80s one hit wonder “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record),” a capable  Misfits cover and a spot on cover of Weezer’s “Say it Ain’t So.”

“Won’t Go Down Without a Fight” was one of several set highlights.
 Frontman Rory Freeman’s voice reminded me of One Bad Son’s Shane Volk.
