Guitar Center of Lake Forest has donated a Fender Stratocaster guitar pack (complete with amplifier), two didgeridoos, a set of bongo drums, and twenty pairs of drumsticks to be raffled off to lucky event attendees. INDIE104, and KX 93.5, Laguna’s only FM station, join as media sponsors for the event, and will provide live coverage of the music event and interviews with the bands, as well as airing special Public Service Announcements created specifically for the event in collaboration with Text Kills®. KX 93.5 will be joining members of Text Kills® for a live broadcast at Laguna Beach High School today, passing out free tickets and promoting the event. These sponsors join an already impressive list of community partners, including Fan Apps ™, Iconosys, Inc., Bully Buster USA™, Pete’s Music, OC WEEKLY, California Highway Patrol, Case Sandberg Photography, California Krav Maga, the Travel Orange County Visitor Guide, MasterDrive, Impact Teen Driving, and Monster Offers (OTCBB: MONT).
“We are extremely excited to have Guitar Center, Indie 104FM, and KX 93.5 lend their support to our great event,” said Ryan Foland, COO of Iconosys. “We think this will be our best concert yet, and we are very pleased about the opportunity to give the local youth the gift of music.”
The Wild Hearts concert follows the success of last year’s original KJAM event, which was also at the Kaleidoscope. The K-JAM concert series was created by Text Kills® to encourage youth community involvement through music by providing a positive environment that also educates them on the dangers of texting while driving and text-bullying. Text Kills® believes that getting teens to carry this message to other teens increases its impact and reach, which is why teenage bands were chosen to perform. Attendees will also be encouraged to sign the Text Kills® Tour Bus, making a pledge not to engage in texting while driving or text-bullying.
“The KJAM Wild Hearts Concert promises to be a great local outreach effort, representing local musicians’ stewardship in supporting important causes,” said Wayne Irving II, CEO of Iconosys and founder of Text Kills®. “We love to support up-and-coming talents, especially when they are passionate about more than just playing music. You have to stand for something. Standing up against texting and driving will save lives, and these kids understand that message.”
The event takes place on Saturday, February 23 from 6:30 P.M.-10:30 P.M at the Kaleidoscope Center in Mission Viejo, CA. Tickets cost $10 at the door, with limited VIP passes available for $20 that grant special stage viewing, an event poster signed by the bands, and a backstage pass. Doors open at 6 P.M. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to Text Kills® to help fund their nationwide trek to put an end to distracted driving and make the roads safer for everybody.
Tickets can be purchased at the Kaleidoscope and at www.kjamconcert.eventbrite.com
