The day after Labor Day 2020, the area of Happy Camp, CA and the surrounding territory was hit by it’s most devastating fire to date, The Slater Fire. This blaze took out more than half the town of Happy Camp, as well as thousands of acres of the Klamath National Forest. This area is the native land, and current home, of the Karuk Tribe.
Recording artist Jay Chavez and his wife Cassidy created a video to bring attention to this tragedy, and to ask for help in rebuilding this community. The Jay Chavez Band have pledged that thru the end of November, ALL SALES PROCEEDS from the new single “Change” will be donated to the Karuk tribe for disaster relief efforts in the town of Happy Camp. The video entitled “Let’s get a Platinum record for the Karuk people!” was released last week to the public through social media platforms. The single can be purchased at iTunes, Amazon and all other music retailers. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Cassidy Lang directly.

Our mission is to provide any kind of support we can to this neighboring community that has been hit so hard this year. We regularly take supplies and donations to the Tribal Headquarters, where they then distribute them as needed. But our BIG idea came to us as we were contemplating how else we can help these people.
And last, but Not least, we want to extend our eternal thanks and support to all of the Firefighters risking their lives in the middle of a pandemic to help save our communities and wildlands from these devastating fires raging up and down the West Coast. You are truly our heroes!
