Dan Hosker may be gone, but in no way is he forgotten. The dynamic musician who sadly passed away in 2012 lives on thanks to the efforts of his sister Chris Hosker O'Brien, Frank "Rat Bastard" Falestra, Holy Terrors bandmate Rob Elba and the Dan Hosker Music Continuum (DHMC), an event that raises funds for a music scholarship each year. This year’s event will take place Sunday, December 3, from 6 p.m. to midnight at Las Rosas. Cost to attend is $10 for 18 and over; $20 will include a copy of the CD and admission.
The event’s companion CD is called Distinguish the Sound and features previously unreleased tracks from South Florida favorites, past and present, including Charlie Pickett, Jacuzzi Boys, Nil Lara, For Squirrels, Arlan Feiles, Humbert, Curious Hair, Diane Ward, Gold Dust Lounge, The Goods, Viva Le Vox, Ian Hammond & The Ugly Truth, Jim & John Camacho, Jim Wurster, Shark Valley Sisters, The Brand, Plutonium Pie, Wurster, Shark Valley Sisters, The Brand, Plutonium Pie and many more. Many of these artists will be performing live that night, along with sets by DJ Skidmark.
All proceeds will go towards the continued funding of the DHMC scholarship and this year, the Xela Zaid / Alex Diaz Stroke Recovery Fund. Past DHMCs have helped Priya Ray from Kreamy Lectric Santa buy a handicap-accessible van, and helped purchase instruments for the Miami Girls Rock Camp. This year’s event will be hosted by Nicky Bowe, Mr. C, and Dave Daniels, legendary founder and former owner of Churchill’s Pub.
