Welcome to the TriPolar Foundation!
The TriPolar Foundation was established March 2012, after the untimely death of the lead guitarist and vocalist of TriPolar - Dan "Danzilla" Roy suffered a massive heart attack while on break after the first set of a gig. Danzilla was an accomplished musician who was a perfectionist in his work and expected no less than awesome from every project he took part in. He lived his life for his music, even if it meant sacrificing the everyday comforts you and I take for granted - even living in his car at one point, refusing to surrender to 'the system'.
The TriPolar Foundation celebrates Dan's life AND supports other musicians like him, who make a living at their craft, pledge their life to their work, and have the talent to support it. We are an incorporated non-profit, operating as a 501(c)3 organization.
