The collection


richie hass is an amazing
multi-instrumentalist musician. alumnus of
zoogz rift's band, he is best known these
days for playing in saccharine trust and also
with joe baiza's universal congress - probably
the top vibraphonist in southern california.

richie was recently diagnosed with multiple
myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow, and
since he is a self employed musician, he has
no health insurance.

the l.a. music community was rocked back on
their heels by this news. everybody loves
richie. so we musicians, together with the
imf, are putting together a benefit in
richie's honor. and while the benefit is
being held in richie's honor, he has opted to
donate the proceeds to the international
myeloma foundation for much-needed research
to find the cure for this disease.

the f.o.r. benefit (friends of richie) is
taking place at safari sam's in hollywood, on
saturday march 31st, starting around 4:00 pm
