Bands in the North Florida music community will come together for a special performance to help a fellow musician.

The performances in August will include a special reunion of the band The Ride, and some tunes by Lisa Ann Taylor and her husband Robin.

Florida musician Lisa Taylor is fighting colon cancer.

An announcement on the Facebook page for the Taylors’ band Lisa and the Mad Hatters includes details of the fight Lisa has had to wage:

“As most of you know my wife Lisa has been battling stage 4 colon cancer for 6 years ..during this time she’s had two life saving surgery’s, infections, emergency room visits , long hospital stays ,29 chemo treatments and 6 radiation shots into her lung …”

Cliff’s Bar and Grill (3033 Monument Road, Suite 2) will host the fundraiser on August 17 from 5 PM-1 AM. Details were posted on the band’s page:
