Benefit Concert for G.I. Joe Search and Rescue, Featuring Andrew Figueroa Chiang, Tony T. Nguyen and Peachy Keene

Last month, the Weekly published a cover story on G.I. Joe Search and Rescue, an OC group that treks through canyons, creeks, rivers and forests to look for those who've gone missing. By tying themselves to ropes and poking around in the water, these volunteers helped recover the bodies of 20-year-old Joe Le in the San Gabriel River, and 22-year-old Scott Neacato and 25-year-old Minh Tu Nguyen in the upper Kern River. "To a family, it's not just a body," says Victoria Le, the sister of Joe and founder of the organization. "It's a son, a daughter, a mother, a father. No one deserves to feel that pain."     

To help raise funds for training and equipment, the organization is hosting a benefit concert next Saturday, Aug. 20, at Access Group Media in Fountain Valley.

The event will feature local music artists, including 

Andrew Figueroa Chiang

Tony T. Nguyen
