One of Rockford’s well known lead singers, Timothy Bourbon, is battling cancer. The local music community is putting together a concert to help with medical expenses.
I met Tim Bourbon back in 2006. At the time, he was the singer of MindDrop. I’ve seen him in and around the local rock and metal scene for quite sometime before then, most notably with L.O.C.
His big voice breaks through the music like a sledgehammer, making you believe whatever he sings. The only thing bigger than his voice is his heart.
Sometime in 2007, I asked him if he would help raise some money for The American Heart Association. He didn’t hesitate other than to say, “I’m totally down for it, but gotta run it by the band.”
I have seen him lend his time and talent to countless causes, organizations, and friends over the years. He has always been willing to stand up and help those who couldn’t stand on their own.
Now, he’s fighting a battle with cancer and his friends are coming together to show their love and support.
Timothy Bourbon has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is currently receiving treatment. Jennifer Brown has organized a fundraiser online to help pay for medical expenses.
Please join the local music scene as we band together for one of our own.
Saturday, October 19, 2019 at American Legion, 1011 S. Alpine. 3 p.m. – 1 a.m. Tons of live music, raffles, friends and good times.
