The inaugural Dustin Mele Memorial Concert was held at Brown’s Revolution Hall in Troy on Sunday, March 30 as a benefit for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. A plethora of Nippertown musicians – including Dustin’s dad, veteran Troy guitarslinger Joe Mele – pitched in, donating their time and talent to the cause.
