Local Alice in Chains tribute band Jar of Flies take to the web to raise money for the Layne Staley Memorial Fund and offer grunge fans the ultimate Alice in Chains experience.


SEATTLE, WASH - The Emerald City is sharing grunge to the world through a free live stream event paying homage to Seattle’s Layne Staley, the original Alice in Chains front man. On Saturday August 22th, local Seattle tribute band Jar of Flies (the ultimate AiC experience) with Brendan Maier will give a special performance from the main room at the iconic London Bridge Studio to celebrate the life, music, and legacy of Layne Staley. Donations collected from the tribute event will go to the Layne Staley Memorial Fund which benefits the addiction recovery center Therapeutic Health Services (THS), and to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The Layne Staley Tribute Show 2020 is presented by MVK Music Group and London Bridge Studio.

The annual Layne Staley Tribute is a Seattle tradition for fans from all over the world to gather and celebrate the music, life and continued legacy of Layne Staley and all of the musicians who left this world too soon. During this time of COVID-19, this is not going to be the typical annual reunion. As shows and gatherings are canceled across the country, and music venues, artists, bands, and the entertainment industry face an uncertain future, we feel it is important to continue to fundraise for these important causes, and to celebrate some of the good in world, if only virtually. The event will be free to access via a global livestream with donations to THS and SAMHSA encouraged in place of the typical travel and attendance fees.

This year’s event falls directly on Layne’s birthday of Aug. 22nd. Fans and grunge-lovers can tune into the free livestream at London Bridge Studio, where Facelift, Sap, Jar of Flies EP and the Singles movie soundtrack were recorded, for a glimpse into the iconic studio, and a live performance by Seattle’s Jar of Flies – The Ultimate AIC Experience. The event is scheduled to begin at 5pm PST (UTC -7) from London Bridge Studio in Seattle, WA and will be streamed across multiple platforms for anyone and everyone who wishes to join in the celebration.
