Hooah Art Space Announcement

There's been alot going on, actually too much for me to even have time to post...

First off, there's a new venue in town called The Hooah Art Space, which is made possible by The American Veterans' Alliance and The Society of Hispanic Veterans, whose offices are both located at the National Headquarters building at 1923 SW Calle Ocho, which is owned by Waddell McGee.

Mr. McGee formed a group called the American Veterans' Alliance, which is dedicated to supporting veterans and their families' needs. Its focus is to help all veterans in need of anything from shelter to food to any services that most people now take for granted. Mr. McGee is a veteran who also wanted to not only give Miami more art but also more creativity coming from veteran artists. Art and music events are being held there on the last Friday of every month hosted by Rachel Goldberg, with the sole purpose of raising much needed funding to veterans and/or the families of returning war veterans. "Art by Veterans and Artists Directly Supporting Veterans' Causes" is their motto. So all artists are welcome to participate and join in on the fun!

I was there on September 26 (I had the flyer posted on this website) and played my sitar for an hour and a half (in 30 mins sets). Also there was the band Scapegoat. I will be there again on October 31 from 6:00 to 11:00 PM. Now don't quote me on this but on the last event there were free wine and refreshments. So chances are that it will be the same for this event. As soon as I have the new flyer I will post it. In the meantime, you can check out The American Veterans Alliance on MySpace to find out more information on this organization.

Be sure to check out the Hooah Art Space photo gallery online for some more photos of the live musical events.

Here's a scan of last month's flyer sent to me by my friend Troy, who's helping to put these musical events together...
