For the sixth consecutive year, BlowUpRadio.com is bringing together some of the best indie musicians for Banding Together: A Benefit For The Spondylitis Association of America.

The webathon will air on internet radio station BlowupRadio.com running from October 19th through October 23rd, and feature live performances from over 60 bands. Artists include some of the best up-and-coming artists as well as nationally known artists.

"The webathon will be the internet radio equivalent of the Jerry Lewis telethon, only with better music," says Lazlo, the founder of BlowUpRadio.com and the organizer of Banding Together. “Previous years this webathon has run from Friday through Sunday, but when I realized how many bands were kind enough to be involved this year, that we were going to have to expand the webcast to be more than just the weekend. I cannot thank enough the bands that are donating their time to be involved with this cause.

During the course of Banding Together, listeners will be encouraged to donate money via a secure on-line section of the Spondylitis Association Of America's website. Everybody donating during the webathon will receive a free digital download of a webathon exclusive compilation featuring over 40 songs from some of the bands performing (over 3 hours of music). A complete track listing is available at http://www.BlowupRadio.com.

Thanks to a generous supporter, any donation up to $50,000 made to the Spondylitis Association Of America in October will be matched.

The Spondylitis Association Of America (SAA) is a non-profit organization that was the first and remains the largest resource for people affected by spondylitis. Through their efforts, they help advance education, research and treatment for ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and related diseases.

For more than 25 years’ SAA has dedicated all of its resources to help improve the lives of people coping with spondylitis.

"This is a very personal benefit for me as my wife, Naomi, suffers from ankylosing spondylitis (AS).", says Lazlo, "I have seen the debilitating effects of this disease and the chronic pain and discomfort it causes. This benefit is the least I can do to help my wife, and over a million others who suffer from AS."

The benefit runs from 12noon Friday October 19th until Tuesday afternoon October 23rd. It will be broadcast on http://www.BlowupRadio.com
