On July 14, 2005, Michael Dahlquist, John Glick and Doug Meis
(3 close friends, fellow musicians and co-workers at Shure Incorporated) were stopped at a stoplight in Skokie, IL when their Honda Civic was struck from behind by a woman traveling over 70 m.p.h. who was trying to commit suicide. All three men died in the tragic accident, but their combined spirit, compassion for others, love of music and overall zest for life live on.
The 3FRIENDS memorial and benefit show was organized to honor and pay musical tribute to Michael (Silkworm), John (the Returnables) and Doug (Exo, the Dials). The night will feature performances by some of the men’s former groups. In addition, there will be a raffle and silent auction. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the charities selected by family members on the men’s behalf. The four band bill for the night will be comprised of the former bands of John and Doug. Michael, and his former band, Silkworm, will be honored alongside John and Doug via performances of Silkworm songs along with original sets by Exo (CD release / last show ever), The Dials, The Returnables and The Negligents.
