Badal’s extensive research reveals how the citizens of Collinwood were desperate to find someone to blame. Rumor and suspicion splintered the grieving community. Meanwhile, many also rose to the challenge of healing and recovering like city charities, churches, and multiple relief agencies. Fundraising efforts to assist families totaled over $50,000—more than $1 million today!

  • The Numbers Band 50th Anniversary Celebration Concert at Kent Stage — Feb 29, 2020 7:00pm - 7:00pm
    Kent Stage, 175 East Main Street, Kent, OH 44240

    Small Town, Big Music author Jason Prufer will also be on hand to sell and sign copies of his book on the history Rock in Kent, Ohio, including chapters on the Numbers Band.

    "The band continues to create and evolve outside of the "Rock & Roll" establishment. The majority of the recordings were financed by friends who loved the music enough to put up their own money. Hundreds of photographs taken of the band in different stages of it's existence by different amazing people tell a story of intense performances, long nights, and the passing of time. Band members have come and gone, and returned again. Robert sees music as much more than an emotional release or a performance. It is a job, a job for which he demands respect and payment for services."
