What. A. Weekend!
My band played the Lifting Little Lives benefit this weekend, and what I remember of it was great!!
Lifting Little Lives is a local nonprofit organization based out of Milton Pennsylvania, that raises money for local children, with big needs!
My band, Audiobox, chose this group for many reasons.
• The money all stays local, So we see its effects in our community
• The people who run it, are some of the best people we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with.
• The organization helps promote our struggling music scene. (This should be key for any musician!!)
• All of us are fathers, and we understand that our children are the most important thing in today’s society.
That being said, they throw one heck of a party! The security keeps it safe for everyone, and the connections I make with other musicians, are generally very long term friendships!
Also, there’s great food, beer for anyone staying there, and just so many great times to be had!
That’s why I named this blog, the way I did. I generally drink a ton of water, usually about a gallon or more a day… This weekend that water was replaced with beer & Jameson. Phew… My poor body is in recovery mode…
Not only did I play an awesome, all original set with Audiobox, I also was the emergency backup bassist for local heavyweights “Aftermath.” I was honored to tickle my 4 strings with them, and it was a fun set! On top of all that, Audiobox also did an impromptu acoustic set, between two other acts (make things transition smoother.)
Anywho, it was a great time, and if you have a minute, check out Lifting Little Lives, and let them know that what they do, is very important to the world.
Are there any local charities in your area, that you think go above and beyond the call of duty? Let me know! At the very least, I can give their Facebook pages a like!
As always, thank you for your time, sorry I didn’t post yesterday, I’m lucky I could even move!
