The Story

Medical emergencies happen without warning.   We take for granted the extremely talented people in our community like Frosty who have been ever present to contribute, showing up time and again to make our community special, to create moments and memories while making it all look easy.  Frosty has truly been one of the heavy lifters in music with a list of artists and groups too numerous to cover from acts like Rare Earth, Sly & the Family Stone, Lee Michaels, Delbert McClinton and Jimmie Vaughan.  
Barry "Frosty" Smith needs help now to cover medical expenses and the ongoing costs of physical therapy and medication after suffering a triple blow from a heart attack, a significant stroke and pneumonia while in recovery.  Rehabilitation will be slow and require diligent work to retrain his neuro-pathways, rebuild balance and improve cardiovascular health.  This will be a long term process.  Frosty cannot work or tour for extended periods until his condition improves.  Help Frosty offset the costs of this medical emergency, loss of work and ongoing rehabilitation. 
Frosty contributes his time and talent to help others in need and we ask you to give what you can and share this fundraiser with as many people as possible.  Stay tuned for updates as we'll be announcing a benefit concert in the near future.  Thank you.

Please keep Frosty in your thoughts today and send him your love. He is having an angioplasty procedure to the carotid arteries. It is a sensitive procedure that comes with certain risk, but it is the best option at this time. He is scheduled to be in the hospital for just a couple of days. We will post an update when we know more. Thanks again for helping out brother Barry! please send love and healing feelings!

Great News!  We are very close to meeting our goal for Frosty's fundraiser!  Thanks to all of you for showing your love, spreading the word and giving what you can.
We would like to especially thank Steve Wertheimer at the Continental Club & C-Boys Heart & Soul for his generous contribution. Where would we be without your support and for literally giving Austin a homebase for so much great music!  We would also like to thank Wayne Sutton for donating the proceeds of his recent Jonipalooza show at the One to One for the cause.  There are only four days left in the fundraiser and I am confident that we can reach the goal we set for helping Frosty out.  Thank you again for caring and sharing!
