Nick Menza, multi-media artist and drummer extraordinaire for Megadeth and many other bands and recordings is celebrated by his family, friends and colleagues in a night of musical remembrance of his vast and varied musical history! Mostly known to the public at large as the best drummer that Megadeth ever had, Nick also contributed his substantial artistic talents over a broad spectrum of visual and musical expressions and all will be on display on this night of art, music and fun! A silent auction of some of his Instruments, art and memorabilia will be on display and open for bidding! CD’s of his music from former bands will also be on sale, as well as T-shirts and custom Nick Menza drum sticks!
Appearing that night will be a tribute from major rock stars and former band members coming together to honor their friend and fellow musician, Nick Menza! All proceeds from this event will go to Nick’s sons exclusively, including future sales of CD’s, art and merchandise, as well as a DVD of this performance.
Peace, Love and Nick Menza!
