Les LaFranier, a Billings musician who now lives in Lewistown, was recently diagnosed with stage-four colorectal cancer.
Best known for his role as bassist and vocalist in the band Mustache Pete, LaFranier has played in bars and clubs all over Billings and throughout the state and region. A kind-hearted soul who loves to play at any event, LaFranier is beloved by many.
Several friends of LaFranier are putting a benefit on for him at the Eagles in Lewistown tonight, Saturday, Jan. 13, where he will take the stage with Billings native Kevin Kemp, reviving Mustache Pete. The event starts at 6 p.m.
If you can’t make it to the benefit but want to help, donations may be sent to P.O. Box 445, Lewistown, MT, 59457.
