Hey all, it isn't every day that BRP steps out in public. But that happened recently at a golf fundraiser for the Adopt-A-Pig foundation.
BRP was the sponsor of a hole at the fundraising tournament. The picture above was taken by the tournament organizers. Recognize that logo?
The golf outing raises money for Adopt a Pig, a pediatric cancer foundation that provides art therapy and coping kits to children suffering from cancer. It was founded by Rob and Vicki Amand; their daughter, Reagen, had childhood leukemia twice. Rob and Reagen enjoyed painting a piggy bank when Reagen was sick, and thought that other sick children might enjoy it, too. Adopt a Pig provides piggy banks to youth cancer patients to paint, then sells the piggy banks to raise money for the charity. The buyer is encouraged to fill the piggy bank with coins to donate back to AAP. Reagen has been cancer-free for two years now.
And yes, even a cheapskate like me is moved to take action when it comes to childhood cancer. If you want to learn more or want to help, here is the link to the foundation website:
What else is happening? Well, I occasionally get contacted by artists and promotional people about bands, concerts, and other happenings in the rock world. Most of these contacts are not worthy of mention, but the most recent one worked. So let's give a big BRP welcome to Beachwood Coyotes. Here is the track, Face to Face, that I found catchy and it has a pretty cool video, too. I hope you like it.
People, I have to tell you that I've been working on some stuff here that is going to rock your world. Some is nostalgic, some celebrates the musical heritage of Philadelphia, some is the standard high-quality live music review stuff, and there are some tidbits coming your way as well. Spread the word!
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
