Orbit Room Owner’s Legacy Lives on Through Sold Out Five Finger Death Punch Concert
The music community in Grand Rapids was shocked to learn of the unexpected passing of longtime Orbit Room owner Don Dorshimer this past weekend. Dorshimer died at the age of 56 according to Spins On Music. A sold out crowd honored the music lover and business man during last night’s (October 6) Five Finger Death Punch show. Check out our photo gallery below.
Five Finger Death Punch have been on the road in support of their fourth studio album, The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 1, the first of two records to be released by the band in 2013. The Los Angeles, Calif. headbangers gave a blistering performance from beginning to end, starting things off with American Capitalist single “Over and Under It.”
Openers Escape The Fate, Miss May I and Gemini Syndrome did not disappoint as well. They kept the energy going throughout the night and had the audience set up perfectly for FFDP. We saw Gemini Syndrome hang out at the merch tent and talk to every person who went up to them. It was awesome to see a band interact so closely with their fans.
Our hearts go out to our family at The Orbit Room for their loss. We’re sure Don was smiling down on all of us last night, proud of a legacy he spent decades building.
