Every year Sol Driven Train hand picks a charity and this year’s chosen group is Music & Memory. This unique non-profit organization brings personalized music into the lives of the elderly or infirm through digital music technology, vastly improving quality of life. They train nursing home staff and other elder care professionals, as well as family caregivers, how to create and provide personalized playlists using iPods and related digital audio systems that enable those struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories. By providing access and education, and by creating a network of MUSIC & MEMORY℠ Certified elder care facilities, their aim is to make this form of personalized therapeutic music a standard of care throughout the health care industry.

Festival-goers are encouraged to bring a working digital music player or Amazon/ iTunes gift card to donate or make a monetary donation to Music & Memory and be automatically entered in a raffle.
Sol Driven Train has been spending this year supporting their latest album DANCE! which was released in March on their own label Sol Driven Train Records. They have been spotlighted in Relix.com, Washington Times, and The Alternate Root and Punk Globe magazines with critical praise. Their video for “Crazy Dancer” is now in rotation on AXS-TV, a cable channel owned by entrepreneur Mark Cuban. Taking cues from the whimsical to the outrageous, the video has been a favorite amongst fans. As the band explains, “We encourage folk to be themselves and celebrate the weird in their life,” the band states.
So come out from near and far to join the band and their friends celebrate and give back in the name of music! Music is the best medicine for the SOL!
