About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital:
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Unlike other hospitals, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from individual contributions. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. https://www.stjude.org/
About Reckless Kelly:
Austin-based, Reckless Kelly (name inspired by Australian bushranger Ned Kelly) is Americana/Roots Rock at its finest with 9 albums and counting. Led by brothers, Willy (vocals/guitar) and Cody (vocals/fiddle/mandolin/harmonica), the Brauns had previously toured with their father in Muzzie Braun & the Boys, a Western swing band. Ultimately they formed their own group, folding in lead guitarist Casey Pollock, bassist Chris Schelske, and drummer Jay Nazz.
The band played locally on historic Sixth Street in Austin in renowned venues including Stubbs Barbeque, Saxon Pub, Antone’s Home of the Blues and a small bar/restaurant called Lucy's Retired Surfers Bar, which they turned into a noted music venue. Reckless Kelly's debut album, Millican, appeared in the fall of 1997 and was officially released in 1998. Acoustic: Live at Stubb's and The Day both followed two years later, after which David Abeyta replaced Pollock on lead guitar. Under the Table and Above the Sun from 2003 began the band's relationship with the high-profile Sugar Hill label and won the hearts of the music press and honky tonkin' legend Joe Ely, who sang the band's praises in interviews. Wicked Twisted Road was released in 2005, and the next year the live album Reckless Kelly Was Here captured the band's stage presence. Bulletproof was released in the summer of 2008 on a new label, Yep Roc Records. In 2010, Reckless released an album of songs by one of their musical heroes, Pinto Bennett. Somewhere in Time, in the band's own words, highlighted their love of "straight-up honky tonk." The band regularly returns to Austin to play before capacity crowds at venues like Nutty Brown Cafe & Amphitheatre.
