It’s with a sad heart that we write this. DJ Jimmy Hands, who has been a part of the Fort Collins music community for many years, passed away yesterday. Known mostly for his solo work, he also is part of the Observatory crew. He played Year 1 and Year 2 of our festival and was slated to perform this year as part of Observatory. We want to take a moment to remember him and his contributions to our music scene. Jimmy, you will be missed. Our thoughts and love go out to your family and friends during this extremely difficult time. We love you!
UPDATE: A memorial will be held on Wednesday March 9th for Jimmy at Hodi’s Halfnote in Fort Collins starting at 8 PM. Performers include:
The Nu Classics
Seth Blakely (Beatserver)
Observatory (Eric and Ben)
There is a $5 donation at the door with all proceeds going directly to Jimmy’s family to help pay for expenses. It is encouraged that you wear Jimmy’s favorite color purple in his honor.
