A fellow engineer needs your help.
« on: March 03, 2008, 11:10:50 am »

A good friend of mine and engineer Scott Harding was in a horrible car crash a few weeks ago returning from a studio in a cab. 3 Kids were drag racing and ran a red light and plowed into the side of the cab and then fled the scene, the next morning the car was reported stolen. As a result of the crash, Scott in now paralyzed below the waist. Like a lot of people in the industry, Scott had no health insurance and very little in the bank. All of his friends, fellow engineers, and musicians are pulling together to help raise money for the HUGE bills that are starting to come in as a result of the accident.

Benefit concerts are being organized and below is the first one. If you are in NYC and want to hear some incredible musicians and help someone at the same time, this is the night.

The Scotty Hard Concert, March 19th
Highline Ballroom
461 West 16th Street
New York

Confirmed artists:
John Scofield
John Medeski
Billy Martin
Bill Laswell
Eric Krasno
Neal Evans
Marco Benevento
Joe Russo
Antibalas
Sex Mob
DJ Logic
John Ellis
Michael Blake
Vijay Iyer
Tommy Hamilton
Kevin Kendrick

The date is March 19, you can see further details on the venue web site http://www.highlineballroom.com/bio.php?id=427. 100% of the gross box office receipts will go to the trust. Tickets are on sale now. We're doing this event entirely non-comp, tickets can be purchased through the outlet specified on the site.

If you can't make the show and want to still help a fellow engineer, you can send a check to:

The Scotty Hard Fund
c/o Heesok Chang
970 Kent Ave #401
brooklyn ny 11205

Any amount will help even if it's $1.

Scott Harding has engineered some great records and worked with incredible artists like MMW, Prince Paul, Wu Tang, Crash Test Dummies, the list is long.  I'm sure you either have one of the records he's worked on or heard some on the radio.

Thank you in advance.

The frequenters of this board have always been amazing about helping fellow engineers out - let's pull together and help Scott through this tragedy!

FWIW, I think they are trying to set up a paypal account for the fund, but in the meantime, please send something.

We are in the process of trying to set that up but as of now, no. Apparently it's a little harder to setup an account for a trust fund. But if it does get setup, I will let everyone know.

I've got my tickets and the show is going to be killer. I'm going to bring my video camera to film it for him.

Donation sent...

Before Scott moved to NYC, he lived in Vancouver, where he was a big part of the Alt-Jazz scene as a guitar player. He's a smart, funny guy, and certainly found his groove in New York.

I wish him the fullest recovery possible.
