Beatles * Stones Invitational

The first annual Beatles/Stones Invitational features 30 acts from Philly and South Jersey each performing 1 Beatles song and 1 Stones song and proceeds will provide free individual music instruction for deserving kids. It’s open to all ages for a recommended donation of $10. Even the musicians are making donations to play. We’ll have some food and beverages (including the kind some adults like) provided by local businesses. Come hear some favorites and some deep tracks performed by local heroes and help a kid out. We’re also looking for musical instruments to get into the hands of kids. If you have anything you’re not using, we know somebody who would treasure it. The first $600 donated will be matched dollar for dollar by Collingswood Music, providing a full year of instruction for one special kid.
