Joel Fest a Rockin' Success...

Nocturnal Productions, Gregg Juke & The Mighty No-Stars, Susan Fischer, and the executive committee of the Joel Thomas Benefit Fund would like to thank ALL of the people, businesses, organizations, musicians, and all-around great folks that contributed to Joel Fest through donations of time, money, or both. Thank you for your financial, physical, logistical, emotional, and spiritual support. Thanks for buying tickets and spending money on the raffles and auctions. We had an outstanding time and raised a lot of money!!!!

It was a long time in the planning, and quite a few long days in the making, but it was all worth it. You all made this event successful beyond our wildest dreams, and for that we are truly grateful.

It was really great to see and hear all of the musicians performing at this once-in-a-lifetime concert, and even more gratifying to see a lot more of the music community (even those that weren't performing) come out to support Joel and his fight against ALS.

If you missed Joel Fest, but would like to help with our on-going efforts to create sustainable assistance through the Joel Thomas Benefit Fund, please visit the website at . We'd love to hear from you.

Thanks, stay tuned, God Bless & Good Blues,

Gregg Juke

Joel Fest

Well, Summer went by fast, and we're already into the Fall season. Much is happening, but what's most important to us right now is what's coming up this weekend: Joel Fest in Tonawanda, NY. As many of you may know, our friend Joel needs help, and we have been spending the past 8-9 months planning the benefit party/event of the century. We have a concert with some of WNY's premier musical talent planned, as well as a day of fun, great food, raffles, auctions, fundraisers, and special activities. Joel will also be there, signing copies of his new book, "Creature Comforts."

Please visit to find out more about Joel Fest, the Joel Thomas Benefit Fund, and how you can help, even if you can't make it to this fantastic show and event.

We hope to see you there!
