John Langenstein, Director of Security for several bands including Phish and The String Cheese Incident, has recently been focusing his time and energy for a wonderful cause.  John has donated memorabilia out of his personal collection, as well as helped coordinate the donation of several additional items, in an effort to raise funds for The Station Family Fund.

"This terrible tragedy could have happened to any one of us that goes to live shows. I took it to heart, The Station Nightclub fire really hit home", said Langenstein.

The Station Family Fund is an all-volunteer, 501 c 3 recognized, tax exempt, nonprofit organization, founded to offer assistance and relief to people directly affected by the fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island. 100 people perished, close to 200 severely injured, and more than 60 children lost one or both parents in the horrific fire on Feb 20, 2002.

Every dollar raised by the Station Family Fund goes directly to address the needs of the survivors and the families of victims. There are no administrative costs.

The wide array of items includes many rare Phish show posters, all but one numbered, a few signed, and all out of print. Madison House, the managing company behind The String Cheese Incident, has also stepped up to the plate with several signed items as well as their complete “On The Road” CD catalog, which consists of live recordings from many of their shows. The catalog consists of 150 titles.

For complete item details and bidding, please visit our auction site.

Peace, Dave
