The many musician friends of former Boston lead singer Brad Delp ("More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind"), including power-pop producer Steve Baker, come together for an evening of fun and fundraising at the concert event With A Little Help From His Friends. Beyond Boston, Delp brought his soaring vocals to side projects such as the Beatles tribute band Beatle Juice and the rock group RTZ, and band mates from both acts will play past favorites at this event. Though Delp died tragically in 2007, his legacy as a humanitarian and generous performer lives on through the Brad Delp Foundation, which helps fund music-related grants and education. Celebrate this cause and the life of one of power pop's greatest stars at this concert and release party for the new limited-edition vinyl record "Two Days a Week" featuring two previously unreleased tracks by Delp.
