    Great post with complete info. Thank you!

    I think you're missing a number before Porch, so 7 total songs? Or was it just the first line?

    It was just a tease of just about the first line, not full song so I didn't count it. Almost as enjoyable though considering it was solo!

  • I was at the event as well and that was a great recap.  I did not realize how devastating Epilepsy is for so many families.  Nils Lofgren did a great set and then Miguel Cervantes and his lovely wife Kelly delivered a heartbreaking talk about their daughter.  Miguel helped them raise about $500K in 20 minutes from the people in the room and then Ed came out. The Porch tease was really a fun moment - basically Ed just wanted to see how she signed Fuck.  Just Breathe was perfectly suited for this event.  Nils pulled out an electric guitar for Rockin' in the Free World and they really cut loose.  Miguel Cervantes took a verse and looked like he was having a great time.  Overall the event was extremely well done and struck a good balance between education, fund raiser, and entertainment.

    Kelly is a good friend of mine from college and I’ve not talked to them over the last few years but her and Miguel are awesome people and really selfless. I was texting with her today and they’re pushing through. I can’t push enough to donate to CURE and help them and others out. It’s a cause that doesn’t get nearly enough headlines. Great people for a great cause. Please donate!
