With live music and concerts gone during the pandemic, 100,000+ roadies have been out of work. Musicians are coming together to help their fellow industry mates. To help support roadies, Jason Hook has announced a limited-time auction of guitars and other 5FDP themed memorabilia in support of Roadie Relief allowing fans and friends worldwide the opportunity to purchase exclusive Jason Hook memorabilia (partial proceeds will benefit www.roadierelief.org).
Roadie Relief is a non-profit organization founded by Chad Ward which provides ongoing support to live event workers who have lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the items available are two Gibson Jason Hook Explorers – one that was used during Five Finger Death Punch’s Got Your Six world tour in 2015 and a stage-played signature M4 Sherman Epiphone. Alongside this a custom Harley-Davidson FXSTB Softail Night Train motorcycle and a Kawasaki KX250F Motocross bike are also available at the auction.
Commenting on the auction Jason Hook said, “I was asked to help support Roadie Relief with an online auction and I jumped at the opportunity to help our roadie and crew member community get back on their feet.”
“Live music is starting up again, but we can’t forget the last 15 months where these critical members of our music community were unable to work. We need to get together and support our industry.”
The online auction will commence at 10AM PT on Friday 11 June 2021. For more information and to view the action head over to Jason Hook’s website.
