Playing for Change Day – Sat, Sept 17

Greetings,

Man, am I diggin’ this late summer. This is what we were supposed to be enjoying in July & August but hey, better late than never?

I am playing at Iguana’s Beach Grill on Friday/Saturday, Sept 16, 17. Saturday, Sept 17 will be a special evening as Sept 17 is Playing for Change Day and so that night will also be a fundraiser for the cause. The Playing for Change Organization created the video that starts out with a dude singing a version of ‘Stand By Me’ and then they keep adding other folks from around the world doing their thing. The video is on YouTube.

The PFC mission, and I quote – ‘The Playing For Change Foundation is dedicated to creating positive social change through music education. We are driven by the belief that peace and change are possible through the universal language of music…’

You can find more about the foundation at http://playingforchange.org/ plus you can go to http://playingforchange.com/ to see a number of cool videos and find out more about what they are doing.

I will have a donation bucket out for those who would like to contribute on the night of the event but if you are unable to attend and would still like to contribute under the banner of my event you can go here http://playingforchangeday.org/show/neil-harnett If you are able to drop by even for a bit please add your name to the attending list.

Here is an inspiring Playing for Change Day video on YouTube PFC Video

You may find it interesting to know that Yoko Ono is a big supporter of PFC hence you may notice that one of the logos is John Lennon with the caption ‘Power to the People’. Amen to that. Peace and Happiness to you all. – Neil
