However, as they say in the business, the show must go on.
Sunday’s benefit from 2 to 6 p.m. at UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond, will double as a tribute to West and as a fundraiser to offset the costs for his medical treatment and funeral. Four bands each will play a 45-minute set:
• 2 p.m.: Tyler Lee and Scattered Blue
• 3 p.m.: Mojo Men
• 4 p.m.: The Quentin Cash Band
• 5 p.m.: 2AM
Tickets are $15, with all proceeds going toward West’s bills. The bands and UCO Jazz Lab have waived payment for the good cause. —Gazette staff
