Second Annual Bubba Bash in Celebration of Neil Peart Announced for 2024…
The inaugural Bubba Bash in 2023, dubbed as such in Neil’s nickname, was a joint effort of YYNOT’s Tim Starace and Neil Peart’s long time friend and security provider, Michael Mosbach. Together, they assembled an all-star lineup of Neil’s friends, each generously making a special appearance.
Over $100,000 was raised for Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Neil’s memory. The sold out Bubba Bash was such a triumphant event, it was the catalyst to make this an annual event.
Bubba Bash 2024 will be held January 6, 2024 at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA.
All of the artists from the 2023 show will be returning for encore performances with YYNOT:
Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, The Winery Dogs)
Frank Bello (Anthrax)
Jason Bittner (Shadows Fall, Overkill)
Jon Dinklage (Clockwork Angels string ensemble)
Joe Bergamini (drum instructor, author)
John Wesley (Vertical Horizon)
Seven Antonopoulos (Opiate for the Masses)
Additional artists are currently being gathered and will be announced soon.
