Benefit For Amp Fiddler’s Son Tonight
Dorian Anthony Fiddler, the beloved son of Joseph “Amp” Fiddler and Stacey Willoughby passed away unexpectedly on the morning of Friday 1st May 2009. He had only that week been taken into the hospital and diagnosed with diabetes, which led to his sudden and subsequent death.
Born January 11, 1991, Dorian was an accomplished drummer and trumpeter who had adopted his father’s love and devotion of music from an early age and pursued his own musical goals and ambitions with dogged determination and dedication. In recent years he had been a pupil at Detroit’s High School for the Fine and Performing Arts, playing in the school band as well as collaborating with other students. Latterly, he worked beats in the school studios for hours at a time after school, learning all aspects of music production; and when the opportunity presented itself, he joined his father on stage, most recently, during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January of this year.
A memorial benefit gig organized by Amp and Dorian’s friends will be held tomorrow, Thursday May 7, 2009 from 6pm onwards at Bert’s Warehouse Theatre , 2739 Russell St, Detroit. The “One Love Jam” will be a fundraiser to assist Amp and his family with the Funeral Services. We are calling on Detroit and world music communities to support one of it’s wounded bretheren as he mourns the loss of his only child. Admission is free but all love offerings will be gratefully received at the door, or, if you cannot attend, via paypal memorial account, and of course by check. We are also asking you to add your love to the mix – We still need Photographers, Videographer, Lights, Etc.
