Musical Benefit For SD Musician Terrin Durfey Monday At Belly Up

Please join us on Monday 10/20 for a Benefit Concert/Party for local music hero Terrin Durfey at the Belly Up featuring Jon Foreman of Switchfoot, Joanie Mendenhall, Alex Woodard, Years Around The Sun, and more.

Here is some background info from Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman:

“When we were kids we all had our heroes: ball players, musicians, actors, and role models. Many of these childhood heroes fall from grace as we learn more about them. This is not the case with Terrin Durfey.

Terrin was a hero of mine in high school and still is a hero today. His music still is a huge inspiration. More recently his heroic fight against cancer has helped to remind me of the most important elements of life. His attitude throughout this battle has been such an encouragement to me to stay strong and stay positive.

I recently received the news that his cancer situation has become worse and is going downhill. The doctors can’t seem to find a chemotherapy that will work and the oncologist just gave word that he’s out of ideas. Terrin is not giving up though. He’s staying positive, staying hopeful and looking for ways to carry on.

In thinking through his story I am reminded of how precious life is. There are so many aspects of this life that are out of my control. And yet, I cannot allow these circumstances to overshadow my own choices. So, inspired by Terrin’s fight a few friends of mine and I have decided to throw a benefit concert/party for Terrin Durfey.”
