Things are looking up for Lance Yocom, the head of Spune Productions, and family. Yocom has been in a state of comatose since late July. While on his family vacation in Arizona, Lance checked in to a Flagstaff hospital after experiencing some flu-like symptoms.
Soonafter the check-in, the Spune Productions owner fell into a sedated state and became dependent upon IV drips for two weeks. Last week, Yocom was released from the IV drips and showed positive signs of stability. Just today, it was announced that Lance is responsive, answering yes/no questions, and having a sense of his surrounding.
Though improvement is always great news, it’s a long road back to full recovery. It may be some time before Yocom could head back home to North Texas. Most importantly, the $16,000 needed to get him back is a rough patch the family has to face.
However, there are some good hearts around in this town. With great support around in the community, Fort Worth Weekly and Fort Worth’s Lola’s Saloon (where Yocom has been booking shows frequently), has arranged a benefit concert to help get Lance back home.
The benefit concert this Saturday, August 20th, will feature Spune artists such as Seryn, Doug Burr, Calhoun, Telegraph Canyon, and more. Each $15 donation will fully contribute to The Green Eye Project, in honor of Yocom’s green eyes.
Lance Yocom is a regular in the North Texas music community. Working hard, booking shows, and managing notable North Texas artists (Seryn, Doug Burr, Telegraph Canyon), the whole community wants to welcome him home once more. $15 of donation will be taken at the door, extra dollars always accepted.
To keep up with Lance’s recovery, follow his wife Socom’s CaringBridge account. In supporting The Green Eye Project, Granada Theater will have a donation box at our venue. When you’re here for a upcoming show, support a good cause and donate. Let’s get Lance back home, everybody.
