Santa Barbara, California (PRWEB) March 06, 2014

An all-ages experimental music and aerial dance event featuring some of California's best dance companies and musicians, will be held March 22 at the Marjorie Luke Theatre at 6 p.m. The family-friendly benefit for Girls Rock Santa Barbara (GRSB) was a sell-out in its inaugural year, and will feature twice as many collaborating performers at this year's event. Tickets are $27.50 for adults and $20 for kids age 12 and under, and are available now at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/545709, or by calling Brown Paper Tickets' 24/7 event concierges at 800-838-3006.

“This event is like Cirque du Soleil meets a killer rock concert,” said GRSB’s executive director, Jen Baron. The GRSB organization, dedicated to helping young women to enter the male-dominated rock music industry, has quickly gained lasting support from the community, as well as from professional musicians such as Brandi Carlile.

The night begins at 6 p.m. with a silent auction of gifts, services, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences donated by both local and national sponsors. Collaborative performances begin after the auction at 7 p.m.
All proceeds go directly back into GRSB to fund scholarships, instruments, startup costs, transportation to bring girls to the after-school program or to Girls Rock Camp (GRSB’s summer program), etc.
