Stoney LaRue & Demented Cycles “Ridin’ for a Reason”
Motorcycle Ride & Concert
Benefiting Central Texas American Cancer Society
September 26, 2010
Stoney LaRue & Demented Cycles announce their 1st annual “Ridin’ for a Reason” celebrity motorcycle ride & concert. Gruene Harley-Davidson (1288 Loop 337 New Braunfels, TX 78130) will host the start of the ride Sunday September 26th where registration will begin at Noon. During registration & to help kick the ride off there will be live acoustic performances by Willy & Cody Braun of Reckless Kelly and Wade Bowen. The ride will end at Luckenbach Texas (412 Luckenbach Town Loop Fredericksburg, TX 78624) where riders and concert attendees will enjoy performances by Micky & Gary Braun of Micky & the Motorcars and other surprise guests. Stoney will close out the show with a full band performance that will combine the rootsy, emotionally honest sound of country with the beer-drinking swagger of heartland rock and a dash of the moody undercurrents of the blues.
Stoney & Demented Cycles are committed to giving back. “Ridin’ for a Reason” is their way of creating a fun & entertaining way to get people involved with supporting the Central Texas American Cancer Society, and an easy way for everyone to show that they care about the lives touched by cancer. Demented Cycles owners Charlie and Kevin Russell have had their fair share of dealings with cancer. Their father passed away after a long battle with cancer. After many months of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, being in and out of remission, the senior Mr. Russell asked to be allowed to spend his remaining time at home. The American Cancer Society made this possible without any fanfare or miles of red tape. They supplied all the things necessary to make this happen. Mr. Russell was at home with his family when his time came. In addition to their father, Charlie and Kevin have lost two uncles, three aunts and their grandmother to cancer.
Demented Cycles teamed up with Texas Music/Red Dirt artist Stoney LaRue in 2009. With Stoney’s help, Demented built a custom chopper that Stoney will ride for two years and then auction off. The proceeds of the auction will be donated to the American Cancer Society. When Demented Cycles told Stoney that auctioning his custom bike would benefit this charity, he immediately joined in the effort.
Nine out of ten Americans are touched by cancer in one way or another.
