Chicago, IL - June 24, 2013. Three members of the popular Chicago-based reggae outfit Akasha-bassist Doug Bistrow, drummer John Barbush and keyboard player Shane Jonas-will be making their annual trek to the wilds of Alaska to play a string of shows and music workshops, July 11-20. The trio will join Anchorage-based singer-songwriter Kevin Worrell under the moniker "Beer Money" to play a mix of covers and originals that encompass rock, country, reggae and alternative music.

"Beer Money is where my friends take a musical vacation," explains Worrell. "We all break from our normal routines to form this abnormal musical outfit."

Worrell, who released the CD The End of the Beginning in 2006, is excited to have the members of Akasha, a band that has supported The Toasters, Sister Nancy, KY-Mani Marley and Souls of Mischief, in Alaska to share their talents at favorite venues and workshops presented via the Anchorage Music Co-op.

According to Bistrow, "Leaving the hectic electricity of Chicago for the mountains and clean air of Alaska to play music for a few weeks is one of life's great pleasures." He finds the people that he has met on previous trips to be "warm, friendly and hospitable right off the bat; always ready for a dance or a bonfire or a drinking contest (or sometimes all three at once!)."

Beer Money's string of shows begins at the Tap Root in Anchorage on July 11 and ends at the Fairview Inn in Talkeetna on July 20. In between there will be a performance at an open-air farmers market in Palmer, AK (7/12), shows at the Yukon Bar in Seward (7/12-13), a gig at the Down East Bar in Homer (7/14), the aforementioned music workshops (7/16-17) and a show at The Salmon Bake in Denali (7/18-19).
