Suzy McGrane was a local photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer and ultimately lost her battle in her early twenties. What started as Save Our Suzy is now known as Share Our Suzy. The goal of SOS is to bridge the financial gap and allow breast cancer patients to focus solely on recovery and not the financial stress brought on during this very difficult battle. Funds raised cover the critical areas that insurance companies do not by providing assistance to those with every day needs such as wigs, prosthetics, childcare, gas cards, utility bill assistance, medication assistance and more. Share Our Suzy’s mission is to raise money and resources to assist and support breast cancer patients in South Carolina from diagnosis to remission.

One of the originators of the jam band movement, Indecision‘s innovative music is a unique blend of rock, jazz, blues and extended jams complete with rich and complex lyrics. Indecision has shared the stage with musicians such as Widespread Panic, Phish, Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews Band, Jorma Kaukonen, Hootie and the Blowfish, The Neville Brothers, The Connells, Jupiter Coyote and more.

Not all Southern rockers fit into an expected mold and that is exactly the case for the rhythm and blues five-piece, Gaslight Street. By incorporating Southern music traditions with their own life experiences, these long time friends have shown that Southern rock still has a place in the American music pantheon. Gaslight’s hard rock edge and fast guitar leads keep their loyal core of music loving fans thirsting for more.
