Tucson – Matt Bejar Memorial – REcap

It was a beautiful moment to see on August 7th, as friends gathered together to honor Matt Bejar at The Rock and shred the stage! As we celebrated life, we also celebrated music and shared the stage with the perfect variety of performers. Artists that performed were Lethal Injektion, Stands With Fists, Stacc Styles‬, Tustoned Kids, Ccs Crew‬, Slow Truck, Saalythic, Aleister, Conversation Suicide, Swindy (from Ensphere), Dirty Magic, Soul Siphon, & ListoIt. The love in the room was overwhelming, especially when a slideshow video was played at the end of the show, showing photos of old memories and good times. I think Matt Bejar would be proud of the connection of friends and family displayed and it was an honor to see how loved he was.

Andrew Castillo also created some amazing artwork, as he painted a sinister 16×10 backdrop piece, overnight too! Working straight from 9:00 pm to 7:00 am, art life deadlines are no joke as killed this piece, just in time to present to the band, Stands With Fists. The crowd had such a great connection as they were singing along to the songs that they knew and were excited to hear new material from these local artists. It was awesome to see some of the artists collaborating together, to create new vibes. Catching up with old friends and making new ones in the process was such a great feeling. Jake Ryan said a quote recently that stuck with us, and really makes you think, as he said “It’s never goodbye, it’s just a reunion at a later date”. Thank you Tucson for such a great night, it created memories for a lifetime!
