The Zydeco fundraiser with Koray and Mark St. Mary's gig...

Mark St. Mary is playing Tio's tonight with a special guest appearance from Koray Broussard.  Koray has an interesting story to tell when he gets back home to Louisiana!
This story sounds like a movie if it wasn't real...Koray's truck broke down in Tucson on his way out to play Tio Leo's last week and basically they really are stuck here in San Diego, out of money and out of luck!

Transmission and other repairs are up around $1400 on his $6500 truck...   plus gas getting back... you're looking at close to $2000 total...

Because they don't have credit card options and can't get money from home.....  bus tickets to get the rest of the band (and his 12 year old brother back to school) will run about $200 each for 4 band members or $800 (not including Koray as he is still is trying to find a way to earn about $1000 from down here)

Another musician from the Bay Area where he played a festival said they would help with the other half... $1000...

Koray's 12 year old brother is missing school.
Koray doesn't have credit to rent a car to get back His truck is in Tucson and they charge each day to store the truck until he picks it up and pays for it...

Koray is using his cousin's car locally and needs to get out of San Diego by Monday when his cousin's wife comes back.
They can't even play up in LA as they don't have transportation so far...

We're hoping everyone who reads this post will show up at Mark St. Mary's gig tonight and will bring something a little extra to put in a tip jar for Koray to help him on his way back home.  Thanks to all of you good hearted Bon Tempers, we can make something positive happen out of this very sad story.
