In a benefit for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the second annual Dustin Mele Memorial Concert will be held at 6pm on Saturday (March 21) at Revolution Hall at Brown’s Brewing Co. in Troy.

In an effort to bring attention to and raise funds for suicide awareness, and celebrate Dustin’s life, the annual memorial concert was conceived last year by Dustin’s father, veteran Nippertown guitarslinger Joe Mele. Fellow musicians, family, friends and a contingent of local businesses rallied around the event last year and promise to make it a truly memorable event again on Saturday.

Minimum donation at the door is $10. If you can’t attend the concert but would like to donate, GO HERE.
