To Philly, With Love: We Are Music Premiere This Tuesday 12/1!

Stills from “We Are Music” by Todd Rawiszer

The public premiere for the highly-anticipated “We Are Music” music video is this coming Tuesday at World Cafe Live. “We Are Music” is a live music video project that began in the fall of 2014. Originally written for the band AlyCat, the members of the band decided to incorporate the talents of over twenty Philadelphia musicians. Each player layered their part at one of a dozen unique and iconic Philadelphia locations, recording it live at the scene, outside influences and all, for an incredibly authentic experience.

The video also pays tribute to beloved Philadelphia musician Dante Bucci, who also plays the hang in the song. Leading up to the screening on Tuesday, musicians who were close with Dante will perform and share stories. Performers include AlyCat, Andrea Nardello, EJ Simpson, Allisons Polans, and Alex & the Beggars. Proceeds from the event will benefit Musicians On Call, an organization that meant a lot to Dante and that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.

There will also be a silent auction. Prizes include: 4.5 hours of studio time at Forge Recording Studios; VIP tickets to a Philadelphia Union soccer game, where you’ll sit in the audio booth and play the DOOP song every time the Union scores a goal; 3 vocal lessons from Alison Paige Hilley; 5 children’s music classes from Jump Jive & Jam; a guitar or bass setup and consultation from Lattanze Guitars; and dinner and music with J.Terry McGrath, where he will tell stories and play fifteen instruments in one evening.

Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the musical spirit of Philadelphia. You can RSVP to the event on Facebook here. Tickets can be purchased here in advance for $15 or $17 at the door. Doors open at 6PM and all ages are welcome.
