In light of the buzz about the re-opening of the New Orleans Superdome tonight and the special pre-game Music Rising performance from U2 and Green Day, I figured I'd just post a reminder that the company I work for, Musician's Friend, is partnering with Gibson and Music Rising to restore the Gulf Coast.
Music Rising Supporters can now purchase a very limited edition Music Rising Epiphone Les Paul Standard guitar exclusively at Musician’s Friend with artwork designed by U2’s The Edge specifically for the campaign. The guitar is available for purchase for $599.00 with all proceeds going to Music Rising and its program of providing musical instruments to Gulf Coast schools and churches to replace instruments lost in the huricane.
If you missed U2 and Green Day's performance, you can watch online and then download the U2/Green Day charity track "The Saints Are Coming" via Rhapsody also with all net proceeds going to Music Rising.
