FEEL THE LOVE
| February 16, 2004
LoveFest was a huge success. The show sold out 48 hours in advance. The Noe Valley Ministry officially holds 200 people; I think we crammed 240 in there before we had to turn folks away. Not only did we raise enough money to house 1-by-1's third family for a year, we raised enough for 1-by-1 to start working with a fourth family.
The performances were all magical. The audience crackled with energy and positively pulsated with love. Thanks to everyone who gave their time and energy to the event, everyone who sent out an email or handed out a flyer or told a friend, and of course, everyone who bought a ticket.
Check out the slide show
on 1-by-1's site. I hope to have some audio and video up soon.
I'm already thinking about LoveFest 2.
MORE LOVEFEST MEDIA

This morning I was on the KFOG
Morning Show, talking with Dave Morey, Renee Richardson, and beatbox fan Peter Finch. Take a listen:
My Saturday morning appearance on Channel 4 to promote LoveFest
went well, as did 1-by-1 founder Lynn Roulo's appearance on Channel 2. Check 'em out:
We also made Critics Choice in this week's East Bay Express
(after clicking the link, scroll all the way down):
Badass, largely unknown musicians. Kindly, largely underfunded charity organizations. The twain meet at SF's Noe Valley Ministry Sunday night, when a revered a cappella troupe (SoVoSo), two deft and wonderful singer-songwriters (Larry Gallagher, Sean Hayes), a shockingly inventive beatboxer dude (Kid Beyond), and other Bay Area musical luminaries join forces for LoveFest, a splendid benefit that will hopefully scare up enough scratch to house a local single-parent family. On your first date? This one'll make you look both cool and charitably kind.
This week's Express also has a big article
on LoveFest act Sean Hayes.
