Sometimes bad things happen to good people.

Franco Campanello knows.

Franco as you may remember, was the drummer for legendary rock band 4 In Legion back in the day and more recently is playing with Go 80.  It was a typical late night gig and he was heading back home from Tampa to his wife and kids in Davenport—-but he never made it.  Heavy fog on I-4 made it difficult to see, he hits a guard wall, he gets out of the vehicle to warn other drivers  and the next thing he knows, his body is struck head on by a car at highway speed.  Hurts just thinking about it.

But he’s doing remarkably well—in fact I’d call him a miracle man! He does have lots of broken bones and plenty of bruises.  It’ll be awhile till he gets back on his feet and it won’t be easy.   

That’s where your friends step up. is proud to support our long time friend, Franco Campanello  with a Friends of Franco benefit this Sunday March 4th starting at 1:30 pm at Route 46, Sanford.

This gathering of friends, family and Central Florida musicians features these 7 live bands:

*Skin Deep

*Go 80

*Hat Trick

*Trans Ams

*2 AM


*Red Line

7 bands (!) plus Franco’s 16 yr old son, Franco  will also play for dad on stage – ya gotta love that!!

We also have great prizes to auction and raffle off at the event including a Visio 46” flat screen TV, a VIP Night Out from Deja Vu Transportation with dinner from Route 46, a base guitar, a mint condition 4 In Legion album on vinyl and many more.

But we could always use more items to auction or raffle off.  If you can donate, contact me at  

We will ask a $10 donation at the door for Franco and his family as he recovers from his injuries.
