Playing For Change concert and Bogner Amps at the Whiskey!

The incredible Playing For Change band and Bogner Amps joined forces for their show at the iconic Whiskey-A-G-Go on the Sunset strip in Hollywood, CA. Performances by bluesman Keb Mo and The Doors drummer John Densmore rounded out the night. A little trivia - The Doors were the house band at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go in the mid-1960's.

The Playing For Change Foundation and it's 11-piece touring band believe in creating positive change through music and arts education (more info on the PFC website here) Their efforts and music programs have helped hundreds of children, many from impoverished and war torn countries, gain access to musical instruments and arts education. Check out their videos, like this one here, that feature musicians from all around the world coming together for a common cause of bringing joy and hope through music. Music truly transcends language, race, culture and religion. It can bring us all closer, through it's groove and emotion, all without saying a word.

The Whiskey shows entire back line featured Bogner Shivas, Metropolis and Duende amps being played by Louis Mhlanga, Vasti Jackson and Robin Moxey. You'll remember Robin from the Bogner Lafayette video found here. The PFC band features incredibly talented musicians from all around the world and their message is clear - bring peace, respect and understanding through music. And Bogner Amplification is proud to be part of this message and PFC!

Coming soon will be a Bogner video of this performance but until then enjoy some photos of the rehearsal, souncheck and performance by our Creative Director Greg V. (more pics available here) Enjoy!
