GWAR Creates Dave Brockie Foundation

Posted: Updated:
Band members from GWAR announced Friday the creation of the Dave Brockie Foundation, a charity fund to promote the advancement of music, images, letters, and performances in the arts.

"The Dave Brockie Foundation is a charity fund with the mission of promoting the advancement of music, images, letters, and performances in the arts. It will endeavor to encourage promising talents, as well as preserving the legacy of Dave’s body of works. It intends to be a support system to those who have dedicated their lives in pursuit of creativity. The Dave Brockie Foundation will be a resource for artists in the fields of music, film, literature, and all visual arts who cannot find funding through mainstream channels.

The DBF will also strive to catalog and preserve Dave’s vast collection of original images, recordings, and written words, and make them available for the world to appreciate. The foundation’s first goal is to finance the creation of a memorial monument in Richmond, Virginia to provide the world with a place to pay respects to the memory of a very cherished man."

GWAR frontman Dave Brockie was found dead in his home Sunday, March 23. This year’s GWAR-B-Q, scheduled for August 16 at Hadad’s Lake, will go on as planned. Organizers have scheduled the Dave Brockie public memorial to take place the day prior to the GWAR-B-Q, Friday August 15, also at Hadad’s Lake.
