On Saturday, April 28, 2012, Suck Bang Blow Four Corners will host the first J-Boogie Memorial Fest to honor the life and memory of Josh Vaughn, a young, 19 year-old Myrtle Beach resident who tragically passed away. 

Vaughn was loved greatly by his friends and family who were inspired to put on a show in his honor. Some of the best known local bands will be playing the benefit. Additionally, the festival organizers managed to get some great local business on board to help the Vaughn family and with the event.
