Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- The musical community in Fargo is coming together -- as more than 30 acts perform in memory of a friend.

Six bars hosted the Cody Conner Memorial Benefit in Downtown Fargo. Conner played in a band for years, and when he passed away suddenly a few weeks ago, his band mates thought of a way to give back to his family.

Music, comedy, and variety acts allowed people to enjoy some entertainment, while giving free will donations in support of the loss of a friend.

Cody's friends says music is the best way to honor him.

Pat Lenertz - Friend: "Music was so important to him, and to share it with people, and we're just kind of bringing on his legacy, and to make sure people remember him like this."

Money raised will go to Cody's family. There is also a fund to help kids get instruments.
