San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 23, 2004
Among national bands, regional DJs and other local acts, Independent solo artist, Joe Caprice will be taking the stage on Saturday, July 3rd as part of the Day on the Meadow concert sponsored by Channel 104.9 radio, and benefiting the Our House youth programs of the Emergency Housing Consortium (EHC).
"I'm thrilled to be taking the stage with these national acts, but more importantly, I'm honored that I am participating in something that benefits my own community," states Joe Caprice.
Our House is San Jose's only full-service program for young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Our House provides a safe, overnight, 10-bed shelter for homeless youth ages 11 to 17, transitional living for youth ages 16-21 and offers daytime drop-in and supportive services for homeless, runaway and throwaway youth ages 11 to 21.
"I play a lot of smaller shows to be accessible to people and talk to them after a show. I love playing all ages venues where kids can come out and enjoy the music, too. It's so rewarding to have parents and their teenage kids both love the songs. It wasnÂt my original intent, however itÂs opening up communication channels between parents and kids, and that is an amazing result."
JoeÂs CD, "Acoustic" is alternative rock with hints of country, jazz, and Americana, delivered through powerful vocals and rhythmic guitar on songs that reflect how we treat each other. It's an introspective approach to life that seems to be connecting with a wide audience.
When asked if he feels intimidated going out on stage alone, he laughs. "Not at all! This is what it's about, sharing my music and experiences with as many people as possible, and what a great opportunity to have so many music fans in one place."
The Day on the Meadow concert will be held on July 3rd at Discovery Meadows in Downtown San Jose. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and at all Streetlight Records locations.
