Fans, friends, and family gathered Thursday, March 8th, at Studio Seven to remember co-founder and Alice in Chains bassist, Mike Starr. It was the first memorial concert since his passing in 2011.

The night was filled with touching tributes, memories, and photos and video from Mike’s personal collection.

A video montage of Mike’s early days with Alice in Chains played in bittersweet counterpoint to the heartfelt performances.

A mix of new and veteran musicians performed, including Blacklist Union with Tony West, Grind, A Tribute to Alice in Chains, Amanda J. Hardy, Garden of Eden, Sin Circus, Steel Beans, and a stunning surprise performance by The Randy Piper Band.

Thanks for the music, Mike. We miss you.
