Fans of Fender can pick up two exclusive pieces of merchandise while helping a great cause leading up to next Friday’s Fender Band Jam.
Attendees of the event – held Oct. 28 at the Compound Grill in Phoenix – will have the opportunity to big on a one-of-a-kind American Stratocaster painted by renowned Wisconsin artist Sara Gallenberger, and a limited-edition Telecaster signed by rock legend Alice Cooper.
The bidding has already begun on eBay and closes on the 28th.
The latest Fender Band Jam will also feature a raffle to win a variety of prizes, including music memorabilia, such as signed Mick Fleetwood photos, and Fender instruments will be raffled between musical performances.
Proceeds from the benefit will go towards The Fender Music Foundation, a charity devoted to providing resources for underfunded music programs across the United States.
Award-winning singer-songwriter Kirsten Proffit from Burbank, Calif, will perform, along with I.D.K., the Saucy Jacks, the Nameless Prophets, Joyworld, the Big Fellah’s, and a rare appearance by the 2009 winners of Fender’s International Band Jam contest – Big Tex & The Blazin’ Pintos.
The Compound Grill is located on the northeast corner of 68th St. and Mayo Blvd. (7000 E. Mayo Blvd., Building 21, in Phoenix, Ariz.). It features live music nightly, as well as health-minded Southwestern dinning. For more information and to make reservations, go to www.thecompoundgrill.com .
