Playing For Change
Playing For Change was founded in 2004 and is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.
Playing for Change
Playing for Change’s first single “Stand By Me” began with a Santa Monica street performer named Roger Ridley. Playing for Change recorded Ridley’s live public performance and then travelled the world recording more and more musicians to collaborate on the track. As of Aug 2013, the video has over 60 million views on YouTube alone.
Tickets are $30 to sit down in seats; $23 to stand up.
