Start-up spot: The giving tour
May 1, 2014 12:29
A ‘Livetronica’ band of American immigrants uses charity as one of its primary instruments.
The G-nome project.
Making music by night and volunteering by day is not the usual formula for a band’s tour abroad. The quartet of 20-something musicians who comprise Israel’s G-Nome Project believes these activities can harmonize beautifully.Their “Giving Tour” to the US, planned for three weeks in late summer, aims to combine performing for their overseas fans and performing charitable work in their fans’ communities. The only catch is the need for $12,000 to bankroll the 10-city tour to Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
