Particle will reunite with guitarist Charlie Hitchcock for two very special concerts honoring the recent passing of two of Particle’s biggest fans and best friends, Gregg Lobdell and Jimmy Lebloch. Gregg and Jimmy were cornerstones of the Southern California music scene, and both played vital roles in helping build Particle’s fan base when the band first started with Hitchcock ten years ago. The band is eternally grateful for all the friendship and amazing experiences they shared with Jimmy and Gregg over the years, and they feel the best way to help their friends and family celebrate the lives of these two special people is to come together to perform as the classic Particle lineup that Jimmy and Gregg both loved so much.
This will be the first time in five years that Particle and Hitchcock will have played together.
There will be a Mockingbird Foundation booth set up at the shows where fans can make donations in Jimmy and Gregg’s names, and anyone making a donation will receive a matted poster print of Jimmy and Gregg (designed by longtime Particle artists and friends Jeremiah Harrison and Whitney Padgett).
