Concerts for a cause in Lake George

Sunday wraps up relatively early, with the last band slated to go on at 10 p.m.

Bring Forth Ragnarok is part of Sunday's Battle of the Bands, featuring local groups.

"We're looking for a big high school and college draw on Sunday," Cee said.

Overall, he thinks the concert will be fun for all ages and encouraged families to attend. Tickets are $25 per day.

"It's a little high, but we had to do it," Cee said, noting that sponsors for the event have been hard to find.

The proceeds are earmarked for the scholarship fund as well as for securing venues for future concerts. Cee's grand plan is to hold concerts every month or so, but those will be one-shot deals rather than multiple-day extravaganzas.

"This is a lot of work," he said. "I can't do it all by myself."

It's not for a lack of trying. Cee has pounded the pavement to spread the word about the concert, hanging up signs and passing out fliers wherever he can. But he suffers from multiple sclerosis, and his energy level just isn't what it once was.

In fact, Cee had thought of holding a golf tournament to raise funds, noting that he used to be an avid golfer before MS sapped his strength, but he didn't think he could pull that off.

In the end, he figured a concert was a better fit anyway, since it can cut across gender, religious and other lines, just as HIV and AIDS do.

"Music is multi-cultural. Music is eternal," he said.

Food and refreshments will be available at the forum throughout the weekend. The concert will go on rain or shine, since the forum is an indoor venue. For information, visit www.hivliveconcert.com.""
