On Saturday night we hosted a fundraiser for the Daniel Kingsbury Music for Youth Endowment. If you read our last blog post, you know that the endowment provides annual need-based scholarships for Sunshine Coast youth to take music lessons and purchase music equipment. We played with local hip-hop group, Wilderness Crew. When WC has performed in the past, we’ve been their band, playing live versions of their beats. We did the same thing this time around, but because we wanted this to be a unique experience for the community, we mashed up the sets a bit. We played a few tunes, then played a few Wilderness tunes, then a few covers together, a couple of Daniel’s songs and so on…We even played an MB/WC cowrite original!
The event was sold out, and the combo of tickets, alcohol, and silent auction brought in $5450 in profit. Congrats, Sunshine Coast! If you’d like to boost that total even higher, you can donate via our website. You can also click here for more photos from the evening.
