MADISON - An evening of upbeat, lively, Madison-based music is on tap to bring area listeners engaging tunes and an important message. "Tune It Up," a musical evening to benefit prostate cancer research, will feature three of UW-Madison's most popular performing groups.

The University of Wisconsin Paul P. Carbone Comprehensive Cancer Center-sponsored concert brings together the UW Marching Band (7pm), Tangled Up in Blue (7:30pm) and the UW MadHatters (9pm) on September 14, 2007 at the Orpheum Theatre, 216 State Street, to raise awareness and support for a common disease that, if caught early, can be successfully treated.
"Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men, and the second leading cause of death from cancer in men," says Doug McNeel, MD, PhD, prostate cancer researcher at the UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC).
"One in 6 men is at a lifetime risk of prostate cancer, but with proper screening and treatment, the results don't have to be devastating," McNeel adds. "'Tune It Up' is an important event, because it raises awareness to this type of cancer while also raising funds for researchers to continue their work in better understanding this disease. We truly hope to see many people in attendance to benefit this worthwhile cause."
Date: Sept. 14, 2007

The Badger Band also travels throughout the state during the second semester, performing in various cities and venues.
UW Tangled Up in Blue
