Little Kids Rock Benefit feat. Shelby Lynne and Prairie Prince & The Little Kids Rock BandEvery child deserves music education
LITTLE KIDS ROCK IS... a national nonprofit that transforms children's lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in disadvantaged public schools.
THEY DO THIS BY... partnering with school districts, training public school teachers in our innovative curriculum, and donating all of the instruments and resources necessary to run rockin’ music programs.
THEY DO THIS BECAUSE... playing music is more than just ‘fun’ for kids - it is transformational and vital. Yet budget cuts have forced many school music programs to close, especially in schools serving low-income communities.
Founded in San Francisco in 2002 by David Wish, an elementary school teacher who had grown frustrated with the lack of music education funding at his school, the foundation today, after ten years of service, is one of the leading nonprofit providers of free lessons and instruments to underprivileged children in US public schools, and has served more than 160,000 students at over 1,200 schools in 25 cities nationwide with free instruments and music lessons.
Little Kids Rock Honorary Board Members include Bonnie Raitt, Paul Simon, B.B. King, Slash, Ziggy Marley and other famous friends in the music industry.
Playing with the Little Kids Rock Band will be:
Prairie Prince (The Tubes): Drums
Angeline Saris (Zeparrella): Bass
Chris Rossbach: Guitar
Chris Von Snidern: Guitar and vocals
Darby Gould: Vocals
In order to raise funds, Little Kids Rock will also conduct an auction of various very special items, such as:
Signed guitars by:
Decorated guitars by:
Art by Grace Slick (former vocalist for Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship)
Premium bottles of wines signed by various celebrities.
We would also like to thank the generous donations from:

Performing live at this show will also be Grammy-Winning Singer-Songwriter Shelby Lynne! She was named the Top New Female Vocalist in 1990 by the Academy of Country Music and released several albums.
With the critical success and recognition of I Am Shelby Lynne (1998), which was produced by Bill Bottrell, who had produced for Michael Jackson, Madonna, and had big success with Sheryl Crow on the highly successful Tuesday Night Music Club, she was awarded the Best New Artist GRAMMY® in 2000 – after nearly 13 years in the business.
Love, Shelby was released in 2001, followed by a pair of intimate, self-produced albums – Identity Crisis (2003) and Suit Yourself (2005). She made her acting debut in 2005, playing Johnny Cash's mother in the Fox Searchlight motion picture Walk the Line. Just a Little Lovin’, her critically acclaimed tribute to Dusty Springfield, was released in 2008.
Never one to go with the crowd, Shelby continues to stand apart from the mainstream music world. She recently founded her own label, EVERSO RECORDS. Lynne’s Tears, Lies, And Alibis, EVERSO’s first release, debuted at No. 16 on Billboard’s Top Independent Albums chart in April of 2010.
A Top 10 hit at Americana radio, it was hailed by Newsday as “her strongest album in a decade,” a sentiment echoed by numerous critics. She followed Tears, Lies, And Alibis with her first-ever holiday collection, Merry Christmas, released in the fall of 2010.
Revelation Road – Shelby’s most personal record yet – will be released on October 18, 2011. She wrote, recorded and produced the album, which leads off with the title track and first single, “Revelation Road,” a stirring reflection on reckoning and redemption. Lynne will be touring North American this fall.
