Bringing this festival to fruition was something David and I had discussed on many occasions, and I felt that after his untimely passing, it was just the right thing to do. Please join us for an incredible evening of performances and tributes that will not soon be forgotten."

Well, it's nice that a festival has pawned from this to help out the family. Rest in peace, David Gold.
