This Saturday, the Mex Pub will honour the memory of Jerry (Laser) Leet, who lost his battle with cancer a year ago.

Laser was influential amongst the musical sector in the Valley. He organized various events, promoted many musical groups and was well-known for the success of his band Pacific Disturbance.

The Jagsters — Jamie Morgan, Pete Swann, Robb Flannery and Chris Williams — will host Saturday’s event and will delight you with their fresh, distinctive R&B style.

The versatility of this rhythmic assemblage has charmed a collection of venues on the West Coast.

Teflon Dave “Spragge” and his longtime friend and sometimes band mate “Blind Boy” Paul Murphy will be joined by like-minded friends to play a set in memory of their buddy Laser.
