Music Authority Bands Rock Out for a Good Cause
Music Authority, located in Cumming, Georgia, will be watching two of their bands take part in the 500 Songs for Kids fundraiser this year. The fundraiser raises money for Songs for Kids – a non-profit that sends musicians into children’s hospitals in five states to provide music and inspiration for young patients. The fundraiser takes place over twelve nights and features some of the best musicians Atlanta has to offer.
Music Authority’s Eclipse was the first band to be a part of the event. The band, made up of Sashu Machani (Riverwatch Middle), Ryan Lally (Mill Springs Academy), Lauren Isenberg (South Forsyth High School), Kaitlyn Lahr (North Forsyth Middle), and Christian Strandquist (South Forsyth High School), played the song “Hey There, Delilah” on Saturday, April 1 at Venkman’s in Atlanta.
Lauren Isenberg says about the opportunity, “It was an incredible experience with a lot of other great musicians. And what made it even more amazing was that you were playing and raising money for such a great cause.”
Eclipse’s sister band, Music Authority’s Rise, will be playing “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” on Friday, April 21, also at Venkman’s in Atlanta. Rise consists of Caroline Reilly (homeschool), Jake Lanni (Forsyth Central High School), Kyle Hosea (North Forsyth High School), Harrison Block (South Forsyth High School), Blake Bassham (Homeschool), and Brayden Sudduth (South Forsyth High School).
