FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Since the 1980s, Mystic Bowie has been keeping the art of music alive – entertaining audiences from New York to Japan with his vibrant music and high-energy performances. From humble beginnings in Jamaica, Mystic has become one of Reggae’s hardest working independent artists.
Now, Mystic is getting MADD about drunken driving and joining forces with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Connecticut for a concert benefitting the Fairfield Walk Like MADD.
The show will be at StageOne at Fairfield Theatre Co., 70 Sanford St., Fairfield. The show is on Friday, Aug. 12, with the doors opening at 7 p.m. and the show beginning at 8 p.m.
A percentage of the concert’s proceeds will benefit the Fairfield Walk Like MADD. It is a fun, community-driven 5K event that raises funds and saves lives.
Drunken driving is the nation’s most frequently committed violent crime. In 2014, 97 people were killed in Connecticut as a result of drunken driving crashes. Nationally, 9,967 people were killed in crashes where the driver had a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher.
MADD CT served 600 victims/survivors in 2015 and money raised through the Mystic Bowie Concert and Fairfield Walk Like MADD will help to provide victim support services at no cost to victims/survivors.
Founded in 1980, MADD’s mission is to stop drunken driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.
