            The Burnt Sugar Arkestra performs at ‘Million Man Mosh II: A Benefit for Donovan Drayton’ presented by the Black Rock Coalition at the Highline Ballroom in NYC on January 21, 2013. The concert featured Living Colour, 24-7 Spyz, Ronny Drayton with Rev. Kim Lesley, Nona Hendryx, Burnt Sugar, Lenny White, Eddie Martinez, and other special guests. The goal was to raise funds for the defense of Donovan Drayton who was held in The New York Prison System for 5 years for a crime that there is no evidence to connect him to. Found not guilty of the most serious charges at his first trial in 2011, he faces trial in March 2013 for charges that resulted in a hung jury. He is the victim of a viscous legal system hell bent on destroying this young man and bankrupting his family. They need your support. Please visit www.4donovan.info to find out how you can help.
