The Barker brothers are three musicians who have always been supportive of my Mozart Project and I thought I’d share some info about their bands’ new fund raising project. The brothers are in a band called “Places“, which is a rock band with seven members. Seven sexy and attractive members, I might add, because I know you’re wondering.
This summer, their band needs your help to record their new album, and then go on a charity tour (Reach Across America) across the Americas to play their music and gather Baseball (and other sports) equipment for less fortunate youngsters in Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. Youngsters who are, no doubt, sick of playing catch with sticks.
Each of the Barker brothers has appeared in my photos, Checkers and Branden in “La Finta Semplice”, and Drew in “Die Entfuhrung aus Dem Serail”
Places, and the Barker brothers, would love your help. At the Places Fundraiser website, you can donate money to help them with their album and charity work!
The best part of their fund raiser, however, is what you get in return for your donation.
Now, I’m not kidding here.
It starts out small and innocuous. For small donations you get mp3s and mp3 albums, which is cool.
But as the donations grow, you can get yourself some pretty awesome returns, including being wined-and-dined by all seven guys, going on movie dates with them, getting private concerts, and perhaps best of all, having barbecues with their parents. The websites worth visiting just to read what you can get in return for thousand dollar donations.
It’s pretty awesome.
Before their trip to Central and South America, Places will be giving free concerts across North America, which, as their website states, will connect them with their fellow Americans through their music, and America’s favorite Pastime, ROCK! (Or maybe baseball. I don’t know. I’ve never really done sports, and the site doesn’t make it explicit.)
Finally, I’ll leave you with this Entfuhrung outtake!
