Montsinger's comeback continues

Last year at this time, due to a spinal cord injury saxophonist Buzz Montsinger was in the hospital; he was paralyzed and his future was uncertain, at best.
July 16, 2006: Buzz stood with a little help...

After two-and-a-half months in the hospital Buzz, a football star at UR in the late-60s, was released just two days before a throwdown was to happen on his behalf at Plant Zero. He couldn't stand on his feet without being held up by his friends. At the show Steve Bassett performed, as did Robbin Thompson. Billy Ray Hatley’s band played, so did Bruce Olsen and his band. Ron Moody and the Centaurs closed the show. Click here to read SLANTblog’s coverage of last year’s party.

Now Montsinger’s condition has improved so much is walking with a cane. And, there’s more good news -- another party planned for July 22, again at Plant Zero. Read about it at the Fan District Hub.
