Ohio Musician Returns To Florida And Teams With The Red Cross To Offer Relief With Funds From New Live CD
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
September 16, 2004
Monday, September 13--Put-in-Bay, Ohio - A veteran solo acoustic entertainer from northern Ohio is returning to Florida for his second winter season this October, bringing relief from the recent hurricane disasters there by contributing music to generate funds for hurricane disaster relief. Paul Rader, who performs at Bear Bottom Beach Club in Key West every year, is donating five hundred ($500) dollars cash and fifty percent (50%) of the profits of his latest CD, Land of the Cover Band Live - Vol. I, to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. For the remainder of 2004 Rader will make weekly contributions to the fund that a RedCross source says is already "strapped for cash."
The Red Cross estimates damages in excess of $63 million dollars but that does not include potential costs of Hurricane Ivan making landfall. So far, they have only been able to raise $35 million dollars to help families effected by the storms. When you look at the staggering numbers, it would take to return everybody's life back to normal, it seems completely overwhelming. “What I'm offering seems insignificant by comparison but I'm hoping that it will inspire other independent performers to do the same," says Rader. For those who want to donate, he has set up links to the Red Cross's website, as well as links to make contributions through his artist website www.paulrader.com.
His Land of the Cover Band Live - Vol. I CD contains fourteen classic rock favorites that were recorded at Bear Bottom Beach Club in March of this year. Those wishing to donate by purchasing a copy of the CD can listen to sound samples and get information about the disc on the CD's website, www.locb.com. To get directly involved in the relief effort people should contact Paul Rader via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 330-503-0811.
