What is Global Music Project?
Global Music Project is non-profit organization representing music fans, artists, event promoters, progressive businesses, social activists, and others who believe in the power of music to attract, educate, and inspire humanity to participate in making a better world.
Supporting local music is a good thing. Gio is a Singer/Songwriter from Vancouver, B.C. A singer since junior high, his initial reason for pursuing music was to impress potential girlfriends. He soon realized that he had a talent for creating music that moved more than just the hearts of a few pretty girls. Since then, he has performed for bigger and prettier audiences and has won many singing and songwriting competitions throughout B.C. Check him out!
TEAM UP FOR NONPROFITS PRESENTS GIGS4GOOD FEATURING HOT BODIES IN MOTION AND LUC & THE LOVINGTONS BENEFITING THE SERVICE BOARD.
March 10 2011 – 7:00pm
2200 2nd Avenue
Team Up for Nonprofits presents Gigs4Good featuring Hot Bodies in Motion and Luc & the Lovingtons benefiting The Service Board.
Come and experience a fun night of music for a cause with two of Seattle’s funkiest bands. The very hot right now Hot Bodies in Motion will be supported by Luc and The Lovingtons who are fresh off their tour with Jason Mraz, and Austin Jenkes and The First Call all to benefit The Service Board, at one of Seattle’s legendary live music venues, The Crocodile. Grab you tickets now as the last Gigs4Good benefit was a sellout!
The Service Board’s programs offer the positive space and education opportunities that will empower our youth to build strong community. TSB takes kids raised in the shadow of Mt. Rainier for their first trip to the mountains, exposes them to new ideas, foods and cultures and opens the door to new opportunities and ways of broadening their life path. Through a unique blend of adult mentors, service-learning projects, civic engagement, and snowboarding adventures, TSB builds a caring community that broadens visions and nurtures strengths. This Gigs4Good benefit will raise funds to cover the cost of transporting youth and mentors to the mountain this winter where they will build resilience and conquer fears. The goal is to raise $5,000 to subsidize the rental of seven buses that will safely transport participants to Summit at Snoqualmie, Stevens Pass and Crystal Mountain for Sunday riding.
Hot Bodies in Motion is a four piece groove machine, delivering their own brand of danceable indie blues rock and flooding dance floors with infectious grooves. Imagine a hybrid of Stevie Wonder & Stevie Ray, give or take a beard and some flannel. One local put it perfectly; “every musician in the band is a master of their instrument… I’ve never seen as many people in a crowd dancing and smiling as I have at an HBIM show.”
Luc & The Lovingtons are a World-Soul-Pop band based out of Seattle, Washington who have recently garnered international acclaim through their “Freedom Song” and their recent tour supporting Jason Mraz. A sought after group with contagious energy and warmth, The Lovingtons bring back the spirit of the days of Motown, with a stack of songs full of empowerment, uplift and joy. From Chile to West Africa, New York to New Orleans, the Lovingtons have continued to spread good vibrations, delivering music with a passion and sincerity that connects to the heart.
Austin Jenckes & The First Call is a band that captures you and compels you to stop and listen. Austin Jenckes is a regional artist that has played over 1,000 shows in the last five years and formed the complete band in the summer of 2010. They were recently featured at the 2011 NAMM show in Anaheim, California and are currently working on their first collaborative effort, self-titled “Austin Jenckes & The First Call”, which will be released nationally, May 2011.
Team Up for Nonprofits mission is to build capacity for nonprofit organizations by cultivating a new generation of engaged supporters through the power of music and social media. Our Gigs4Good benefits raise funds and awareness for the nonprofits we partner with and provide an entertaining and accessible opportunity for people to support organizations making a difference. With Team Up you buy the tickets, we bring the music, nonprofits get the money!
A huge thank you to The Crocodile for sponsoring this event. Without our sponsors Team up could not produce our Gigs4Good events so we hope you will support them in return.
