EVENT: A Concert, a Battle, and a Fundraiser in support of the GBV Homeschool Co-op’s participation in the International Robotic Lego Challenge.
WHERE: Wild Bean in Downtown Lewisburg, West Virginia
On October 26th get ready for something… um… WILD! A Musical Battle to The Death (or, at least until we get tired!). This will be a Concert, a Battle, and a Fundraiser held at The Wild Bean in downtown Lewisburg, West Virginia from 7pm-9pm. You’ll enjoy a fun night of music and food while supporting the GBV Homeschool Co-op’s participation in the International Robotic Lego Challenge.
For a while now, I’ve wanted to do a local concert where I could invite area musicians to join me on stage. However, I wanted to spice it up a bit, so I thought I’d offer it up as a “battle” of sorts, hence “A Musical Battle to the Death.”
In addition to offering an event where attendees are invited to perform with me on stage, this event will raise funds for the Greenbrier Valley’s secular homeschool co-op. All money raised on this night will aid in the amazing work being done to compete in an International Lego Robotics Challenge. (Last year, their first year, they took 18th place out of 70 teams and they were among the youngest!)
Put those two together and I think we have a fun night in store for you. Stop by anytime between 7-9PM and, for just $1 you can check it all out. On stage, I will be joined by the phenomenal bassist and guitarist, Stuart Hill (of THE WEIGHT), where we will host a battle of the bands. The only catch is, you can’t bring your band: just an instrument that can be easily carried on stage. You can plug in via a guitar cable or play/sing/bang/beatbox into our microphone. Stuart and I will lay down some grooves, then the battle will begin. I’ll solo, he’ll solo, and then, for $5, YOU can solo too. Then we’ll go around and around to see if you’ve got what it takes. I’d say you shouldn’t be afraid, but truth is, you should be very, very afraid. In fact, if you play an instrument at any level, I DARE you to give it a try.
And if that bores you to tears, there will be neat robotic lego demonstrations going on at the same time and lots of delicious food that you can purchase in support of this young, brilliant team of Lego robot builders.
Hope to see you there! JOIN THIS EVENT ON FACEBOOK!
