The evening will feature an array of globally renowned performers with Florida roots. Band members from headlining act, New Found Glory, graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The members of New Found Glory had this to say:

The members of New Found Glory would like to start by saying this is a statement that we wish we never had to write in the first place. Our hearts are broken, and we cannot imagine the pain the victim’s families, friends, students, teachers and anyone else impacted by the recent tragedy at MSD must be feeling.  While we feel there are no words that we can say or do to fix this in any way, we wish to let you know that our hearts are heavy with the pain that this event has caused to so many. We want to stress that the most important part of the grieving process is to focus on the healing of those affected by this senseless act. As some of you may or may not know, half of our band went to MSD so it is important to us that we do as much as we possibly can to help the school and families of the victims. They deserve our love, support, and help, and we will help in any way we can.

Joining them in tribute this evening, will be former lead vocalist of the band Yellowcard, William Ryan Key, who will be debuting his new ambient, acoustic sound along with the release of his first EP.

Chris Carrabba, who will also be playing an intimate acoustic set is the lead singer of Dashboard Confessional, which recently released their new album, Crooked Shadows.

“Pompano Beach unites with Parkland to share in your grief and help in your healing,” said Mark Beaudreau, Pompano Beach Recreations Programs Administrator. “As neighbors, we are here for the long journey. This event is just a start. We hope that we can come together to support the victim’s families and friends and be an agent of change for the betterment of our children.”
