Upton – Several young musicians will be performing a special benefit concert, “Rockin for SuperTy” to raise monies for pediatric oncology research Friday, April 25 from 7-9 p.m. at Nipmuc Regional High School.
The show will be under the guidance of Upton music teacher, Bob Nicoll, and will feature two local youth rock bands, “Eclipse” and “Playing with Fire.” The musicians range in age from 11-15 and reside in several local towns including Upton and Westborough.
The funds will be donated to the TLC Foundation in memory of Ty Louis Campbell, a young ?Carmel N.Y. boy affectionately known as “SuperTy,” who lost his battle with pediatric brain cancer at age 5? after fighting it for half of his short life. Ty's parents, Dr. Louis and Cindy Campbell, launched the foundation as a way to raise funds for innovative research and clinical trials specifically geared toward the treatment of the deadliest childhood cancers (including brain and spinal cord tumors).
Reuben Kaufman, 13, from Westborough, is a member of “Eclipse. He was looking forward to the chance to play in front of what is sure to be an energetic crowd, and for a great cause.
“The band needs some oomph and I believe I can give that since I have been in different bands in the past years prior to Eclipse,” he said. “I believe this is the most enjoyment I have had in a while.”
