Founding member of Blue Oyster Cult and Connecticut resident Joe Bouchard has joined forces with several Connecticut musicians to support the 4-CT Relief Fund, a charity founded specifically to give aid to people in Connecticut affected by the Covid-19 virus.

Joe has released a video, one of a series involving CT musicians, where he plays a short acoustic version of the BOC Classic "Don't Fear The Reaper" and talks about the goals of 4-CT. He says, "4-CT connects donors with the most urgent needs of our state, such as local food banks, emergency child care for our first responders, housing and the homeless, aid for domestic violence victims, online education and much more."

Joe has always stepped up for our state when needed, and has made several stops at our Camping For Cans food drives over the years. At one of them, Ethan even got to play the cowbell with him on "Don't Fear the Reaper." I'm still jealous.

Other musicians in the series are the Saturday Night Live Band's Christine Ohlman, AJ Gundell who was won 13 Emmy awards for his musical work on television shows, PJ Pacifico, whose music has appeared on shows like "Grey's Anatomy," Jazz saxophonist Vincent Ingala, and Greg Mattson of the Country band Mattson.
