Moody Blues Pay it Forward with Ear Candy

Timeless rock stars The Moody Blues are paying it forward throughout their Voyage 2011 Precious Cargo tour, by teaming up with Ear Candy Charity to host week-long Instrument Drives® in twelve cities to support area music programs. Instrument donations will be collected in partnership with community partners leading up to the band’s performances in each markets and the instruments will be given to various in-school and after-school music programs serving low income youth. The “Journey of the Instrument” is completed when the original donor is notified of the school or program where the instrument they donated has been placed. A tax receipt will be provided for instrument donors.

In addition to encouraging instrument donations, The Moody Blues is offering two exclusive VIP packages in each market which include an intimate pre-show experience, a Moody Blues merchandise package, and a pair of premium tickets to the show. The packages are available via online auction to support Ear Candy Charity’s mission of providing youth access to music education.  Click on the links below to find details on how to donate an instrument and bid on a VIP Package:
