What is the Cabin Fever Throwdown?
This event is the brainchild of David Hicks, from The Band Of Oz. David’s brother was under the special care of Hospice prior to passing away in late 2006. David was moved to help raise some funds for Hospice and told them he would do something. David talked with Ray Hall who agreed to provide the support of the Raleigh Shag Club to help insure the success of this event. David and Ray contacted the many great bands that will be performing and they were all eager to help out. Thus, the Cabin Fever Throwdown was born. Hospice has most likely touched your life in one way or another and NOW is your chance to return the favor. Please join David Hicks, Ray Hall and the Raleigh Shag Club in the efforts to do so.
