 Travis, an awesome New Haven-area guitarist and bandleader, along with his brother, Rory Moody and their friend and boss, Billy Twyford, recently survived a way-too-close Jan. 9, 2010 encounter with 13,200 volts of electricity in a workplace accident in Branford, CT...

Read about it in the  here:

Lucky to be alive; Roofer tells story from hospital bed

After a scary few initial days, all are now out of the hospital and on the long road to recovery . . .

But much remains to be done. Travis is recovering from severe burns. He has had a number of skin grafts. He can't work for awhile and can't play his guitar just yet, but he'll still have bills to pay. He's a father and he has to support both himself and his kid.

So a bunch of his friends -- and make no mistake, Travis has A LOT of friends -- have decided to help out . . .

As it happens. many of them are killer musicians . . .

Thank you to all who donated!




















Admission: $15

Tickets available in advance at CAFE NINE
