New York, NY (PRWEB) April 1, 2007
Charitable teen rock band, Creation™, known for raising funds and awareness for organizations helping the lives of less fortunate children around the world, announces auditions in New York City, for kids 13-15 who can sing and play guitar and/or keyboards, to be their new band member. The live auditions coincide with their worldwide announcement of the Creation JOIN THE BAND Contest (http://www.creationband.org/contests and http://www.youtube.com/groups/creationjointheband), a contest featured on YouTube.com, sponsored by Gibson Guitar and Billboard Magazine.
The auditions will be held on Saturday, April 7 at Montana Rehearsal Studios, New York, NY from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. Appointments are being taken by email or phone to: info @ creationband.org or (646) 330-5958.
The new band member will be announced on Monday, April 23, 2007, by Henry Juskiewicz, Chairman and CEO, Gibson Guitar, at Nile Rogers' We Are Family Foundation Gala at Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC. The new band member will also be presented with an exclusive Gibson Guitar.
The official flyer for the auditions can be found here:
The current band members, Raechel (lead vocal/guitar), Josh (lead guitar), Nick (bass/vocals) and Sam (drums and percussion), have been working hard to make a difference around the world by creating music that spreads the message of peace and tolerance, and by helping to raise funds for like-minded causes.
Creation™'s first album, "World Without Windows" is being sold with gross proceeds going to the WE ARE FAMILY FOUNDATION.
The band's first goal, to raise enough money to build a school in Africa, was already achieved as of March 2006, when the "CREATION" school was completed in Kegnerela Village, Mali, Africa in conjunction with Building With Books, an organization who helps people in developing countries increase their self-reliance through education. Forty girls and 53 boys are already attending the school. Many of the parents are also attending the school in the evenings, to learn how to read.
For the "CREATION" school project, Creation™ also raised enough money to send 10 inner-city teens to Mali, Africa, to help build the school, no doubt lastingly impacting their lives as well.
Creation™ is also honored to be a participant in the second annual Clinton Global Initiative. The band has committed to supporting and promoting the We Are Family Foundation's Just Peace Summit aimed at equipping teen leaders with the tools and knowledge to achieve lasting peace in their homelands.
In the words of rocker Steven Van Zandt upon presenting Creation™ with an award at the We Are Family Foundation's gala last April, "You have all heard of Generation X and Generation Y, well this is Generation Y Not!"
