The local music scene lost a dear friend when Kurt Sahlmann died this past March, and now the scene will put on a special show in his honor Saturday, July 18 at the Kings Rook Club.

The Kurt Sahlmann Purple Jam will bring together more than 40 local musicians to perform in memory of Sahlmann. Seven bands were drafted from a pool of talented Erie players, leading to combinations where many of the artists are playing alongside a brand new bandmate. While the show is free for Kings Rook Members and guests, donations will be accepted and made to Luther Memorial Church in Sahlmann’s name. Year-long membership can be purchased at the door for $10 with sponsorship from a current Rook member. – Alex Bieler
