Top Musicians Participate In "Wear Your Music" Campaign; Guitar String Bracelets Benefit Charities
"I think this is a terrific idea and I'm more than happy to be a part of it," said Carlos Santana. "The charity component is very important to me--and this is a great way to repurpose something that might otherwise just be thrown away."
Additional participating artists currently include guitar legends Carlos Santana and Les Paul, blues legend Buddy Guy, Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Ben Harper, Counting Crows, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Peter Frampton, Dickey Betts, Mike Gordon, Warren Haynes, Les Claypool, Goo Goo Dolls, Spearhead front man Michael Franti, Hot Tuna, Ziggy Marley, David Grisman, Keller Williams, moe., Béla Fleck, Umphrey's McGee, Slightly Stoopid, Little Feat and Baaba Maal. Additional artists will be announced in the near future.
All profits go to charities personally selected by the donating artists, or to the following music-related charities: voter-registration organization Headcount; Carlos Santana's Milagro Foundation; Grateful Dead charity The Rex Foundation; SEVA, which works to reduce avoidable blindness; and Rock 'n' Wrap It Up, which delivers leftover backstage catering to people in need.
