I Can Still Do That Foundation Sponsors a Benefit to Help Hurricane Sandy Survivors in the Rockaways and to Teach About “New Tools and Technologies in Music Production” at a Free Event with Live Music on 4/1/13 at the New Cutting Room
On Monday, April 1st, the "I Can Still Do That Foundation" is sponsoring an expert panel on “New Tools and Technologies in Music Production”, followed by a Benefit Concert at the new Cutting Room, located at 432 E. 32nd Street, NYC (see http://thecuttingroomnyc.com). All net proceeds will be donated to the Rockaway victims of Hurricane Sandy through the not for profit foundation the “Graybeards of the Rockaways”. Admission is free and there will be food and drink available for purchase and a silent auction with all proceeds going to the Greybeards.
The Panel will be followed by a showcase of music featuring Seth Glier and Bert Elliott. Seth Glier received a nomination for the 2011 Grammy Awards Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for his release The Next Right Thing, and earlier in 2011, he took home Best Love Song for his track “Naia” at the 10th Annual Independent Music Awards.
Bert Elliot grew up in Rockaway Beach and his music can be heard on MTV, VH1, NFL, numerous Lifetime movies, and much more. Bert’s second album release, Asylum in Playland, features N.Y. Yankee great Bernie Williams, Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai) and Atma Anur (Journey, Neal Schon, Jason Becker and many more). Bert hosts his own weekly radio show on unir1.fm and runs a music school in Rockland County, NY.
This will be the third in a series of Benefits for the Rockaways sponsored by the I Can Still Do That Foundation (see www.helptherock.org). It is also the second event (of a series of four) by the I Can Still Do That Foundation’s Music Committee. The first event was “Building Your Career as a DIY Artist” which took place on October 1, 2012 at 78Below. The next two panels will be on “New Methods of Music Marketing and Promotion” and “New Music Distribution Channels”.
Please come support Hurricane Sandy survivors in the Rockaways and learn about the latest developments in music production including new tools currently available from some of the top minds in the industry.
