On Friday, November 25th, virtuosic guitarist Marcus Rezak will perform a special Friendsgiving show with an all-star lineup at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood, California. Presented by PR Productions, the three-set performance will feature Felix Pastorius (Hipster Assassins), Dave Watts (The Motet), Wally Ingram (Bob Weir/Phil Lesh), Adam MacDougall (Circles Around the Sun), Ben “Smiley” Silverstein (The Main Squeeze) with special appearances by Robby Krieger (The Doors), Ike Willis (Frank Zappa), Arthur Barrow (Frank Zappa), Scott Page (Pink Floyd), Ian Roller (GENR8R), Andrea Whitt (Shania Twain), Shira Elias (formerly of Turkuaz), members of Cubensis, The Higgs, and more.
A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit Sweet Relief Music Fund providing financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet while facing physical or mental health issues, disability, or age-related problems.

While we have become known for our Designated Artist Funds, where we raise money for specific musicians in need who have a community of support that is willing and able to help out, the vast majority of musicians who apply for assistance to Sweet Relief do not have that option. Money that is donated to our General Fund goes towards helping this class of professional musicians. You may not know their names, but their contributions to music are just as important and your generosity towards helping them is both crucial and appreciated.
Contributions to the Sweet Relief General Musicians Fund will help to pay for an artist’s medical expenses, housing, food and other vital expenses such as utilities, clothing, transportation, program services and counseling.
