Remaining members of the Steve Grimmett‘s GRIM REAPER band, will play a special tribute show at this year’s KEEP IT TRUE RISING festival, that will take place in Wuerzburg, Germany from September 30 to October 2. The band will be joined by Steve’s son Russ Grimmett, who will sing few of his father’s songs, the JAG PANZER and TITAN FORCE singer Harry Conklin, and other guest singers. Joining the band will be also the original GRIM REAPER guitarist and founder, Nick Bowcott. Except that festival organizers will produce and give away for free 2000 buttons with Steve Grimmet, and will produce special tribute t-shirt, with all proceeds to be given to Steve’s family. Steve Grimmett passed away earlier this month at the age of 62.
