Larsonfest is first and foremost in remembrance of our dear friend Donald Larson. He was always out at every gig supporting all the bands playing on any given night. Don was also very active in the community and made everyone around him smile. All of us want to honor his very loyal support by throwing the first, of many, festivals in his namesake. Larsonfest is also geared towards helping a local cause that was dear to Don's heart and that is CASA of Red River. www..casawf.org for more info. All bands/sound guys/stagehands are all doing this out of their love for Don and to do something great for the kids that really need the help they so often do not receive.
