If you are looking for something fun to do this Saturday evening, May 22 2010, Audio Advice is helping out with a charity event called Band Together.  The event takes place in front of the Lincoln Theater in Raleigh and runs from 6-11PM.  Step Up Ministry is the charity being helped out this year by the Band Together event.  They help people with job training, transitional housing, and self-sufficiency.

Five  acts  will perform, including Michael Franti and Spearhead, One Eskimo, The Old Ceremony, Holy House Tent Revival, and Anoop Desai.  Michael Franti has been performing for over 25 years and recently has become quite the You Tube hit with over 4.5 million views of his latest hit song, “Say Hey”.  Anoop Desai is the Triangle’s own contestant from last year’s American Idol.

Audio Advice is helping in the set up of a very cool VIP area.  We want to thank Digital Projection for loaning us a $70,000 commercial projector.  We are setting this up with a large Stewart rear projection screen to broadcast the performance into the VIP booth.  The picture should be most impressive! We’ll also have a couple of smaller flat panel TV’s set up in the VIP area as well.

We invite you to come out for what should be a great event.  You can learn more or donate at  http://bandtogethernc.org/home/
