Music studio to host benefit concert for Thousand Oaks shooting victims

You can’t miss it when you walk through the doors at Rock City Studios in Camarillo.

The 12 faces of those killed in a mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill is printed on dozens of papers hanging around the studio.

It’s in preparation of a benefit concert the studio is hosting to raise money for the victims’ families.

“Everybody at Rock City is beyond affected by this,” said Co-Owner, Brett DeCarlo.

The mass shooting hits close to home for many of the staff and bands that play at Rock City.

Ann DeMartini used to work with Justin Meek and knew Sergeant Ron Helus. She says many of their bands have also played at Borderline.

“You think it’s never going to happen in your hometown and because of all of the other events that we’ve had around the country, it’s always in the back of your mind and then it happens and it’s unbelievable,” said DeMartini.

Bands and staff are prepping for the benefit concert that will be hosted at the studio on Nov. 30, 2018.

Chris Rowland is a member of the band, Professional Americans. It’s one of a few bands set to play at the concert.

“We need something to take our minds off of the misery that has happened in the last month with the fires and with the shooting,” said Rowland. “We’re hoping to put a smile on a few people’s faces and raise a lot of money to help people.”

DeCarlo says the goal is to raise close to $20,000.
