An After Party will include open bar and hors d'oeuvres, as well as an opportunity to meet band members and win one-of-a-kind collectibles.

The Young President’s Mitch Kaneff comments:
I am grateful for your support of this event – it will go a long way to alleviate the pain in so many lives. This disease ravages entire families. I know personally: watching my own mother succumb this past year, I’m
filled with a hopelessness I wouldn’t have believed possible. Alzheimer’s is inexorable and relentless, yes. But your contributions can – and will – make a powerful statement and a palpable difference to countless people. My family's charitable fund, The Kaneff Foundation, is underwriting this entire evening and I will make sure that every possible dollar finds it's way to the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation. If you are unable to attend, a donation is most appreciated. Every effort is valuable, every effort counts.

About the Artists Appearing at the July 25th Event:
The Young Presidents:
The Young Presidents is a two-member rock band from New York City that blends classic rock & roll with a dash of 90's alternative. Using a back-to-basics approach with a modern sound, The Young Presidents returns to the great "power trio" of rock: guitar, bass and drums. Guitarist/vocalist Jake Hertzog and bassist/vocalist Mitch Kaneff are united by their passion for rock music and the band is inspired by everything from Cream to Train, from the Jimi Hendrix Experience to Nirvana - just a few of the influences that were evident on the band's debut album, Freedom of Speech.

Mitch Kaneff: Living proof that you can do it all, Mitch seamlessly juggles being CEO of his company, Arkay Packaging, with the writing and publishing of his book Taking Over: Insider Tips from a Third-Generation CEO, and his musical career.

Jake Hertzog: The youngest winner of the Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition and a distinguished Berklee College of Music alumnus with three critically acclaimed jazz/fusion records, Jake's prior experience playing with Naked Brothers Band helped catapult him into the pop world - and his extraordinary expertise in composing, writing, singing, guitar playing and directing keeps him there!

The Coalition: Inspired by the success of their first album, "Freedom of Speech," The Young Presidents are now involved in an innovative project, inviting guest artists into the limelight with them. Teamed up with renown Grammy-winning producer/engineer Rob Fraboni and collaborating with some of the world's greatest talent (Corey Glover , Blondie Chaplin , Steve Aguirre and Ivan Neville to name a few), Mitch and Jake recorded all original material in Avatar Studios this year. The band's latest release, We the People, features Corey Glover (Living Colour) on vocals. Watch their "Building the Coalition" trailer: http://youtu.be/xqLNqLBba0Q

ASHLEY AND SHANNON CAMPBELL – VICTORIA GHOST:
A Country/Folk project.  Glen Campbell’s children, Ashley and Shannon Campbell, have a band, Victoria Ghost: https://www.facebook.com/victoriaghost

Anton Fig :
Currently with Late Show with David Letterman, Anton has had the opportunity to back up scores of legendary artists on television as well as in live concerts and recordings.
He has produced a solo record - Figments - featuring many great musicians such as Richie Havens, Brian Wilson, Blondie Chaplin and Ivan Neville.

Blondie Chaplin:  

Corey Glover:

Ivan Neville:

James Keach produced the Oscar-winning "Walk the Line " and will provide a taped introduction to a clip from a biopic he's doing on Glen Campbell, which has yet to be released.
