500 Songs For Kids

500 SONGS FOR KIDS is a 10-day live music marathon running from May 3rd to May 12th at Smith's Olde Bar in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Event will be counting down ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE'S 500 GREATEST SONGS OF ALL TIME with 500 DIFFERENT BANDS/MUSICAL ACTS and SOLO ARTISTS. This will be the largest musician involved charity event ever in Georgia, bringing together roughly 1500 individually performing musicians - all for an incredible cause. GEORGIA is the first location to host this event, and soon after, we'll be bringing the SONGS FOR KIDS FOUNDATION, INC. and the 500 SONGS FOR KIDS countdown to other states.

The SONGS FOR KIDS FOUNDATION, INC. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit tax-exempt organization. Its purpose is to connect musicians, the music industry, and music fans with kids in need - kids who are battling cancer, have lost a sibling or a parent, and kids who are suffering from many other life threatening diseases and problems. Are you a hospital looking for a singer-songwriter to entertain some of your kids? Are you a band looking to donate your time at a camp or hospital? Our goal is to bring everyone closer. Just fill out the appropriate form: camp/hospital application or performer form, and well get the word out to acts / camps we think are appropriate for your situation.

matt played the Happenstance this last weekend at the EARL. He helped put together a fabulous band, co-write 3 original songs and learn a cover, then perform at the club - all in one rock filled day. Matt was teamed up with Tracy (Jetty), Lianna (Silent Kids/GA fireflies), Justin (Day Mars Ray/the Suddenrays/3d5speed) and a newcomer to Atl - Dave (a fantastic drummer and hillarious person). The band was called "Do Wait Don't" and smoked up the whole night like a cheap philly blunt.
