Thank you to everyone who showed up at the concert and those who viewed it via livestream. I had a lot of fun and I hope everyone did too. If you want to read more from Bill or others at the concert go to www.spencerbellmemorial.com For those who missed attending the concert, Bill has put up the concert t-shirts and other items at the site. The livestream should be archived at the site that is listed below. Until that time, I know that people have put up videos on youtube. Go enjoy! See you at the next SBL concert.
Someone on another forum asked a question that prompted me to include additional information about the raffle. If you go look at the blogs on www.spencerbellmemorial.com , you will note that Suzanne posted the same e-mail address and information about the raffle. That site is the official one for Spencer Bell Legacy concerts. The money collected for the raffle will be given to the Spencer Bell Legacy project.
Raffle happening for SBL concert in August: We have a copy of Phoenix Taylor's "No Sleep", HQ pictures of the 100 Monkeys, a sweet and adorable My Little Pony decked out in tie-dye and the Legacy Project logo, a couple of the large posters with Spencer's lyrics (Monkey Song and Beautiful More So), original artwork, funsaver cameras that we'll leave in the hands of the bands ..... and the list keeps growing!!! Tickets will be onsale for $2 a piece or 3 for $5.If you aren't going to be at the show just email at Suzanne@DetweilerLNC.com. E-mails accepted until August 20th.
As some of you might know, the Spencer Bell Legacy concert on August 28th in Auburn Hills, Michigan is sold out, but you will still be able to see it livestream. If you wanted to be there in person, you still have an opportunity to do so. One person who posts on the 100 Monkeys music forum is auctioning off a ticket to the afternoon and evening show. Proceeds will be used for the Spencer Bell Legacy fund. The site is at http://www.sblticket.com/SBLTicket/Home/Home.html
Artists on Demand will have a show to promote the Spencer Bell Legacy concert where 100 Monkeys will be performing along with 5 other indie bands.

I wanted to thank everyone who participated in the auctions. It is nice that so much was raised for a good cause.
You can vote on entries for the Mad Hatter contest, just go to http://www.asccnow.com/madhatter.html
Tthe auctions for the Spencer Bell Legacy concert allow you to bring one friend to share the fun with if you have the winning bid. So it makes sense for you and your friend to pool your resources to have a higher bid
In addition to the auctions, there are items being raffled and you do NOT need to be present to win (go to http://www.asccnow.com/legacyconcert.html ). One of the items makes me really wish that I am not one of the organizers of this event.....someone will walk away with a signed 100Monkeys band portrait (note that all the bands will have a portrait including Tin Tin Can!) If you have heard of or been to a Bowling for Soup show, they donated a signed guitar. Simple Plan has donated autographed photos. How about this gem...a Kelly Rathbone one time only designed shirt signed by band. And be sure to check out the designs done for 100Monkeys by Punk You Chucks, because you can have your own unique Spencer Bell Legacy sneakers designed by them. punkyourchucks.com
Just a reminder that the auctions for the Spencer Bell Legacy concert go LIVE this Monday. There is an auction for a meet and greet with the bands at the evening show, dinner with the bands, or you can interview them. Go to http://www.sblauctions.com/ to register and then come back on Monday to bid.
Hey all, I posted about the Portrait magazine questions for 100Monkeys. Well now Portrait magazine has a poll to pick the March cover and 100Monkeys is a choice. This is the issue where 100Monkeys discuss the Spencer Bell Legacy concert and their tour. Please go and vote to keep us way ahead of Chuck (currently 100Monkeys is at 49% and Chuck 34%) http://www.portraitmagazine.net/ Apparently you only get one vote per IP address
