Kevin Max (NASHVILLE, TENN.) -- As previously announced, some of Christian music’s top artists will share the stage with some of music's biggest names for a charity concert benefiting the victims of the Station Nightclub fire.

The charity event marks the fifth anniversary of the Station Nightclub tragedy in Rhode Island, the fourth largest nightclub fire in U.S. history. 100 lives were lost, 200 others were seriously injured and 65 children lost one or both parents. Five years later, funds available for the survivors are woefully inadequate. Only 15 survivors of the fire qualified for Social Security benefits, and many are still unable to meet their monthly needs.

Additional confirmed artists include Emmy-nominated composer and musician Marc Bonilla who will serve as music director for the benefit, Carmine Appice’s SLAM!, Gary Pihl (Boston), Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Danny Seraphine (Chicago) with CTA, Gary Hoey, Brandon Reid Allen and others still to be announced.

John Rich (of Big & Rich) will host the country portion of the concert while Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider will do the honors for the rock segments.

"Dee Snider of Twisted Sister reached out to me to put together a coalition of country artists to help raise money for the families that have lost their loved ones," commented John Rich. " All of my friends in country music responded immediately with yes. No matter what music you play or listen to we are all one family, and we need to help each other out especially in time of need."

The Station Family Fund, founded by survivors, family members and community members affected by the fire, and the Wake Up To Love Foundation, founded by Tesla drummer Troy Luccketta and his wife Phyllis, are the event organizers. While $100,000 was raised in 2005 from a benefit concert featuring Tesla, Shinedown, Pat Travers and Carmine Appice, those funds are in desperate need of replenishing.

All proceeds from ticket sales and charity auctions benefit the Station Family Fund, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. The Station Family Fund is committed to providing survivor relief, including costs of ongoing treatment and rehabilitation.

Tickets are available at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone at 401-331-2211, or online at www.Ticketmaster.com. Prices range from $41.00 to $61.00.
