Friends and fans are helping raise money to pay the medical bills of Scott Thomas, the drummer for Parmalee. He was shot in South Carolina two months ago.
Thomas was shot during an attempted robbery on the rock band's tour bus after a show in Rock Hill, S.C. He has been recovering ever since, and benefit organizers say his medical bills have topped $250,000 so far.
The Friday night event called, Rock 4 Scott, takes place at Tie Breakers in Greenville at 8 p.m. Organizers say 100% of door proceeds and a percentage of food and beverage sales will go to the fund to pay for Scott's medical expenses.
Several local music acts will perform at the event. Thomas will attend if he is well enough, and the rest of the band members from Parmalee are expected to be there.
