Shred Fest aims to raise toys for tots

SALISBURY, Md. - 'Tis the season for giving, and local bands came together Friday night in Salisbury to accomplish just that for local children.

Delaware Black Sheep put on their Shred Fest -- Merry Mayhem and Toy Drive all night at the Reign Event Center.

Folks coming to see the nine metal, punk and hardcore bands could choose to pay a ten dollar cover charge, or donate an unopened toy.

The toys go to Toys For Tots, the cash will be donated to a local charity.

The headlining band is an international band, Full of Hell, who began locally in Ocean City.

"I have two step daughters that mean the world to me and I know the energy and the sprit that they have at Christmas time and I like to reflect that," said promoter Kevin Vickers.  "And this community, especially Wicomico County, has done so much for me growing up in it.  So this is my way of giving back, and I'm doing it through the only way I know how.  I know music, I know these bands, and I know how I can give back."

These local bands team up for a number of shows throughout the year, you can find them on Facebook at Delaware Black Sheep.
