Daisy Rock Girl Guitars supports MusiCares® by donating a Rock Candy Special in
Purple Velvet for the MAP (Musicians’ Assistance Program) Fund’s benefit concert on
May 6, 2011. The event will honor Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode) and Kevin Lyman (founder
of Vans Warped Tour).
MusiCares developed the MusiCares MAP Fund as a resources pool offering support to
those plagued with drug addiction and assisting in their recovery process. The fund
represents the joint goal of MAP and MusiCares to provide members of the music
community access to addiction recovery treatment regardless of their financial
condition. All proceeds from the event will benefit the MusiCares MAP Fund.
Gahan will be honored with the “Stevie Ray Vaughan Award” for his dedication and
support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, and for his commitment to helping other addicts
with the addiction and recovery process. Lyman will be the recipient of MusiCares'
“From the Heart Award” for his unconditional friendship and dedication to the
mission and goals of the organization. As longtime Depeche Mode fans and friends of
Kevin Lyman, Daisy Rock Girl Guitars is honored to support MusiCares’ upcoming
Hosted by comedian Greg Behrendt, the evening will feature performances by
alternative rock band Jane's Addiction, two-time GRAMMY® winners Ozomatli, and a
special acoustic performance by Paramore. There will also be a special performance
by Gahan, producer/musician Vincent Jones, and bassist Martyn LeNoble. Adam Bravin
and Justin Warfield from She Wants Revenge will DJ live during dinner.
