Tribute, memorial for Rodney Lanier this weekend

Posted By on Fri, Dec 16, 2011 at 11:39 AM

NoDa will be in a state of sad rememberance and joy-filled tribute this weekend as Rodney Lanier is remembered at two events. Lanier, 44, died while battling esophageal cancer earlier this month. He contributed to countless artists while also a member of Sea of Cortez and Jolene.

On Saturday night, The Aqualads and a number of local musicians — Benji Hughes, Mike Hendrix, Scott Weaver, Hope Nicholls, The Houstons and Mark Lynch among them — will perform a number of holiday tunes while promoting a CD they joined forces for. Originally planned as a benefit event, the show will still go on and help Lanier's family pay for any outstanding medical bills and funeral costs. Admission is $15. Admission and a CD is $20.

On Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Chop Shop, a memorial service will be held with music and storytelling in an effort to remember all of the great things about Lanier and his musical contributions. After the service, there will be a processional to the Evening Muse.
