Melodic rock band GIANT has announced their first ever reunion appearance. The original lineup of Dann Huff, David Huff, Mike Brignardello and Mark Oakley will be joined by Tyson Leslie on keys and Bryan Cole on vocals.
The reunion appearance takes place Saturday July 1st at Basement East in Nashville, TN as part of The Thrilla for Toddzilla benefit concert to aid Nashville musician, and frequent Decibel Geek guest, Todd Austin. The benefit show, organized by Philip Shouse and Ryan Wariner, boasts an impressive arsenal of talent. In addition to the GIANT reunion, sets by Joe Hottinger and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, Blonder than Hell (KISS tribute), and Steve Wariner will take place as well as sets by Austin’s three musical projects (Jones World, Funkhammer, and Purple Masquerade).
Todd lost most of his belongings as well as pets in a house fire recently. The Nashville music community came out in force to contribute to a GoFundMe account set up to aid Todd in recovering. Over $35,000 has been raised in just 13 days. To donate to the cause, go to https://www.gofundme.com/3xxzt60.
