Jackson: Support for The Fryed Brothers

WOW! I just read an article in your paper about an event that occurred in your area and the comments about some people I know absolutely shocked me and I'm compelled to write.

I refer to the comment below referring to Police Chief Allen McClain:

"For his part, McClain said he was concerned about the event, particularly relating to the band hired to entertain at the run, the Fryed Brothers, and its connections to outlaw motorcycle gangs.

“He said he had been warned by specialists in motorcycle gang law enforcement to expect gangs – such as the Hell's Angels, Mullocks and Vagos – to come for the run, and gang members were in fact spotted at the event, he said.”

I am the mother of a 15 year old honor student that happens to be a gifted blues guitarist. He plays with many musicians and is frequently a guest with different Northern California bands. I am very careful where he plays and with whom he plays.

Recently he had the privilege of playing at an event with The Fryed Brothers Band. He has frequently played with some musicians involved with the Fryed Brothers and was thrilled to be invited to share the stage with them. There were hundreds of "motorcycle" club members at the event but not one connected with the referred-to "outlaw" motorcycle gangs.

Everyone was so supportive of my son and the event was so friendly and fun that my son can't wait to be invited to play with these talented musicians again. For them to be portrayed as some kind of trouble makers and associated with unsavory groups is disturbing to me. Ignorance is the only word I can think of!

The Fryed Brothers are kind and caring people that are always willing to step in for a charity event or when someone needs a fundraiser for some medical issue or tragedy in their lives. They are supportive of up and coming youth, such as my son, enough to share their stage with him and encourage his talents.

I hope that the impression that has been given by the feelings of fear and ignorance on the part of a few people does not override the good that The Fryed Brothers do and the value of their outstanding musical talent.

It's sad that a few ignorant people can make a lot of people fearful.
