Wouldn't It Be Nice?

Out in California, the Wild Honey Foundation has developed a terrific formula of staging concerts to help worthy causes. In the past, Wild Honey has recruited some of alternative rock and power pop’s brightest stars to perform Beatles or Big Star albums in order to raise money for medical research, education, and musicians who need help paying medical astronomical bills. Many of the participants are Wild Honey veterans and judging from the comments and clips that show up on social media afterward, it's obvious this foundation has a knack for bringing positive vibes to each of these events.

This Saturday night, February 13, Wild Honey Foundation is offering the Beach Boys 67 - 77 Show Fundraiser at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA to benefit the Children's Music Fund and the Autism Think Tank. Chris Carter, who does a Breakfast With The Beatles radio program, will serves as host, and he'll be joined by The Wild Honey Orchestra. The musicians involved include Al Jardine, Matt Jardine, Micky Dolenz, Steve Wynn, Susan Cowsill, Carla Olson, Broken Sky (featuring John Wicks and Debbi Peterson), The Muffs, members of Brian Wilson's Band, and Syd Straw. Tickets are $25 for balcony seats and $45 for orchestra and terrace seats.

It would be nice if Wild Honey could brings its events to other cities, but I understand the travel expenses for all the musicians involved would be too high for the foundation to handle. Maybe if some promoters could help out with the costs, there would be a way to accomplish this. It would certainly be worth the effort.
