All year long Save the Music is on case, putting music back in the public schools, where budget cuts have ravaged the arts. They’re doing the work of heroes, as are those who throw in with STM’s efforts, like a guy by the name of John Mayer. Each year the singer packs up a bunch of pals and goes on an nautical adventure called the MayerCraft Cruise. Before they leave port this time around, they’re having themselves a big bash that will fuel some of Save The Music’s 2009 initiatives.
The “One Splendid Evening” concert features Gavin Rossdale, O.A.R, Sara Bareilles, Guster, Erin McCarley, and DJ Logic. It’s being held on March 26, on the Carnival Splendor, docked at the Port of San Pedro in Los Angeles. Tickets are available at Save The Music.
BUT WAIT, THAT’S NOT ALL…
