I wanted to make a special mention about the charity gig at the Belly Up next Wednesday.
The Museum of Making Music opened in Carlsbad in 2000, and is a fantastic non-profit enterprise that “explores the accomplishments and impact of the music products industry through exhibitions and programs, and directly connects visitors with live music and music making opportunities”.
They always have a significant collection of music-making instruments on display, and they produce an incredible variety of live concerts that support the cause. We’ve gone there on several field trips with the kids when they were young, and my Uncle Bob and I saw a very memorable show when David Lindley played in front of about 100 people at the museum!
They have partnered with the San Pasqual Academy to produce the Credence Clearwater Revisted band, which is the original band minus the Fogerty brothers. Tickets and raffle packages are fairly expensive, but if you want to contribute, they do have a money link at the bottom of the web page:
The Museum of Making Music and Friends of San Pasqual Academy are partnering to host an amazing concert event with Creedence Clearwater Revisited at the legendary Belly Up Tavern on September 25, 2019 to support both organizations. All revenues and expenses for this event are being shared equally between both organizations in support of our causes.
San Pasqual Academy is a first-in-the-nation residential education campus that is both home and school to over 150 foster teens. The Academy was designed specifically for foster teens and provides a stable, caring home, a quality, individualized education, and the skills needed for independent living. The 238-acre campus features individual family-style homes, an on-site, accredited high school, a cafeteria, a technology and career information center, an auditorium, recreation fields, a gymnasium, a Health and Wellness Center, a Day Rehabilitation Clinic, and a swimming pool. Teens live and learn at the Academy, as they prepare for college and/or a career path.
