Buckcherry Blow Fans Away at Benefit Concert in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Buckcherry, along with openers Pisser and Toilet Boys, performed in a benefit concert called 'Aiden Has a Posse' at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, N.Y., in order to raise money to save a little boy’s life.
Aiden Seeger was recently diagnosed with a rare brain disease called Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) and is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Buckcherry are close friends with the 6-year old's parents and organized the benefit show in order to help raise funds for the treatment he needs.
The intimate venue was a rare opportunity to see a powerhouse like Buckcherry up close and personal. Singer Josh Todd must have been a break dancer in his past life with the way he moved and danced onstage. The frontman and the rest of Buckcherry looked and sounded younger than most of the new and upcoming bands out there.
Guitarists Stevie D. and Keith Nelson were fun to watch and charmed fans with their charisma on stage. Buckcherry performed hits like ‘All Night Long,’ ‘Everything,’ ‘It’s a Party’ and gave an explosive performance of ‘Lit Up,’ among many other tunes.
NYC glam-punk icons Toilet Boys, who have been tearing up the music scene for 15 years, took the stage right before Buckcherry. Drag-queen singer Miss Guy had a striking resemblance of a blonde Joan Jett in both appearance and attitude onstage. The band as a whole had amazing stage presence and their set was completed with a great rendition of ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’ by the Ramones.
The evening kicked off with local the local rock band Pisser, who captured fans with their distinct sound and talent. When vocalist Eric J. Toast addressed the crowd he had the swag and enthusiasm of a young Mick Jagger. Pisser sounded like a modern version of good old rock 'n' roll from an earlier time.
Buckcherry and the rest of the bands in the lineup not only proved to be humble musicians but caring artists, as well, by bringing fans together for a great cause.
All of the proceeds of the show and the venue went to help young Aiden in his fight. For more information on how to help those suffering with ALD, click here.
