Autism Society of Los Angeles Fund Raising Event
AUTISM AWARENESS MUSIC FEST 2009 IN OJAI HARMONIZING WITH HUMANITY KICKS OFF “AUTISM AWARENESS MUSIC FEST 2009” April 10, 2009: Ojai, California at Farmer and the Cook WHAT: Harmonizing with Humanity is a non-profit organization that unites like-minded “positive music artists” and fans who love listening while providing a center point to support important causes. Positive music artists from all over North America will gather at Farmer and the Cook in Ojai, California for the “Autism Awareness Music Fest 2009”. Free to the public, this event will debut the organizations first album launch entitled: “The Life That’s Chosen Me”. This special event is designed to bring forth the worldwide Autism Community and provide a neutral platform that is inclusive to all opinions and cutting edge resources around this sensitive issue. Ten years in the making, the world’s first ever land yacht will be unveiled as the VIP/green room at Farmer and the Cook and slated for Harmonizing with Humanity’s musical tour bus for 2009. Originally built in 1953, agent to the stars, Phil Berg commissioned General Motors and Greyhound to build this 40-foot tour bus for stars like Lucille Ball, Clark Gable and Joan Crawford. Then, it became the campaign bus for Presidential candidates and Presidents like JFK. The Cub Scouts of Ventura were gifted the bus in the 1980’s.The same “pay it forward” generosity was given to its third owner to uphold the famous music tradition it had grown accustomed to for all its beginning years. Now, nearly sixty years later, The Savitar (means shining wonderer) and Jonathan McEuen (vocal and guitar marvel) is ready to hit the road once again—bringing iconic wonder to cities across America. Maintaining its unique look and feel, this fully covered stainless steel land yacht is draped with the original shot glasses, pencils, ashtrays and paraphernalia one would imagine from a star-studded figure. “I wanted to honor the metro 50’s vibe,” said McEuen. WHO: 15 Indie artists from the positive music genre; Jonathan McEuen; Nathen McEuen; Jackie Lomax; Gardner Cole; Faith Rivera; Karen Taylor Good; Harold Payne; Freebo; Melissa Lewis; Ali Handle; Teresa Walker; Victor Crowl; Michael Moon and many more. WHY: As a father of two autistic boys, Harmonizing with Humanity Vice President, Randy Grossman and his wife have first hand experience as caregivers. “I realized that there are others who are not as lucky as my wife and myself and they are out there feeling very alone,” states Grossman, “We wanted to create something that would serve as a soothing peace to their spirits.” Harmonizing with Humanity recognizes that music is a powerful force for change in the world. “Our core value is to build this community of “Indie positive artists” to not only help sustain their livelihood, but also as a conduit to uplift the spirits (through music) of all people who are directly involved with a particular cause—especially the caregivers who often are the last ones to be thanked and the most under appreciated, overworked and under paid.” MORE: The debut of Harmonizing with Humanity’s first album will also take place showcasing 20 sound tracks and Indie artists and original songs. “The Life That’s Chosen Me” is Harmonizing with Humanity’s first project initiative to create a vehicle for donations that will go back to schools for special needs children and organizations highlighting all causes that depend on funding from private sponsors.
Faith Rivera and Jessika will be performing at this HwH house concert series show.
