Von Cello Benefit Tour!
Von Cello Benefit Tour!
NEW YORK - Oct. 15th, 2001. Orange Dawg
Productions. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Von Cello band took it’s show on the
road, heading south to spread the word.
First stop: Nashville, TN
The band was accepted to showcase at Springwater on Friday
night, 10/12, as part of the Nashville New Music Conference. The
club’s manager, Kara, was so impressed with Von Cello that she
gave the band a chance to run the whole show in the afternoon at
the club. That night, among the audience members was Greg
Seneff, well known Nashville music attorney. He was impressed. It
was a great show which included Von Cello’s new song, “Let’s
Hear It For The Heroes”, a song celebrating the heroes of the
September 11th Attack on New York.
Second stop: Harrisburg, PA
Von Cello was asked to open an outdoor benefit concert in
downtown Harrisburg, 10/13. Organized by Rock Against Violence
in conjunction with WQXA, FM 105.7, the proceeds are to benefit
the victims of 9/11. Yamaha Artist, Von Cello and drummer Phil
Carnevale (Yamaha regional rep.) played the Star Spangled
Banner, Hendrix style. It was so well received that they were
asked to hang around for three more hours to play it again later
in the show.
After the performance Von Cello was asked by a representative of
Ebay to sign a T-shirt which will be auctioned off. Additionally, he
donated ten CDs to be sold with all proceeds going to the cause.
There were several “signs” during the trip that show that the Von
Cello message is getting out there:
1. Von Cello put up a poster at Springwater on Thursday. When
he returned on Friday it was gone. Kara said it was stolen by a
heavy metal band from Texas.
2. Kathy Shepard of the Nashville Musicians Union said she would
forward Von Cello CDs to several important contacts.
3. After playing the Star Spangled Banner in Harrisburg even the
sound man was amazed. He said, “I never heard a cello sound like
that in my life!” He should know; he’s been a sound man for
Commenting on the tour, Aaron Von Cello said, “Playing music to
glorify heroes and raise money for victims is a great honor. This is
why I got into music to begin with!” He added, “I hope sports
teams take notice. I’d love to play the national anthem all over the
country! I’d even go overseas and play it for the troops!”
