Vinnie Paul Abbott (HELLYEAH, PANTERA), Jimmy Crespo (AEROSMITH) and Paul Shortino (QUIET RIOT, ROUGH CUTT) are among the guest musicians who performed with SIN CITY SINNERS on Saturday, November 27 at Chrome (inside Santa Fe Station) in Las Vegas, Nevada as part of a benefit concert for cystic fibrosis research and awareness. Check out video footage of the event below.SIN CITY SINNERS features Todd Kerns (SLASH, AGE OF ELECTRIC), Brent Muscat (FASTER PUSSYCAT), Rob Cournoyer (RAGING SLAB) and Michael Ellis. SIN CITY SINNERS' manager Jason Green's best friend Amanda Thompson is living with cystic fibrosis, making this cause very close to him and the band.
"If there is one thing I have learned from Amanda, it is to never give up. I could sit around and feel bad or I can step up and try to make a difference," Green said.
"Through managing the SINNERS, I have been fortunate to know some really great and famous musicians. Many stepped up to get me items to help raise money for the charity. Growing up these guys were my heroes and they still are," said Jason.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of tens of thousands of children and young adults in the United States. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. The possibility of a cure is only limited by dollars. Money buys science and science buys life, hopefully one day CF will stand for "Cure Found."
On April 9, 2011, Jason Green will captain the Sin City Sinners Team for a 5-kilometer walk in Las Vegas to raise money for CF . He will also be joined by all the members of the band and fans are encouraged to join the band and participate in the walk.
