45fundDeep Ellum’s 45 Fund exists to promote mental health awareness for artists and musicians. Founded in 2011, 45 Fund was inspired by the suicides of Frankie Campagna and Adam Carter, both from the Dallas based band, Spector 45. Spector 45 was a Dallas-based greaser, punk band that captured the pure energy of 50’s Rock ‘n Roll and original 70’s Punk Rock, and kicked it out for today’s audience. In less than 8 years, they played 500+ shows and performed beyond their North Texas roots. Spector 45 formed in 2003 while its members were in high school. They recorded five releases and were two time winners of the coveted Dallas Observer Music Awards for ‘best punk band’. These efforts came to a screeching halt January 1, 2011 with the suicide of founder/frontman, Frankie, followed 88 days later by bassist, Adam Carter.
