Allman Brothers Band & Rock the Earth to Recycle Mobile Phones across US tour

Environmental advocacy organization Rock the Earth,  announced today that they have partnered with the Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic in calling on all attendees of the bands co-headlining North American Tour, to bring their old, unwanted mobile phones (and chargers, adapters, etc) to the Rock the Earth booth at the Allman Brothers Band / Widespread Panic upcoming August - September US tour stops.

In partnership with Musictoday, Collective Good and Gibson, all attendees who bring a phone to the Rock the Earth booth for redemption will receive a 20% off a future Musictoday purchase, and be entered into a nightly drawing for an Instant Live CD of the band's performance; and the tour prize of a Gibson guitar; Plus gain entry into the national mobile phone recycling campaign Grand Prize of the "Party Like A Rock Star" experience - Winner plus 12 friends wins use of the Gibson Tour Bus for a one night concert excursion.

 

Allman Brothers Band guitarist Derek Trucks commented "We're very happy to align with Rock the Earth in this effort to keep mobile phones out of landfill, and just like everyone else, we too have been looking for the right place to recycle our old phones. In fact, I plan on bringing my five old phones to the Rock the Earth booth and I encourage everyone else to do the same".

 

Did you know that one (1) mobile phone has enough super toxic heavy metals to contaminate 40,000 gallons of drinking water?  Or, that one (1) billion new mobile phones were issued last year in the US alone, yet less than 1% ever get recycled?

 

For those people looking to recycle an old phone but who are unable to attend any of these shows, they can still do so by simply going to:  Rock the Earth Phone Recycling Center to utilize the online entry form and free shipping. All participants will receive the 20% off Musictoday discount and gain entry into the Grand Prize sweepstakes drawing,

 

So, what are you waiting for?  The more phones recycled - the less toxic chemicals threatening America's most precious natural resource - our drinking water supply!! And, the greater your chances of winning!

Keller Williams, Ratdog, and The Allman Brothers = Guitar Fest!

On August 18th, 2007 at the Tweeter Center in Camden, the sounds of powerful guitar combinations took center stage. Most people who love music equate the summertime with sitting on blanket on a lawn or dancing barefoot on the lawn of an amphitheater and enjoying the fruits of their favorite bands. This is what this show represented for a lot of people. These musicians have been staples to our scene for years, and for the most part, they haven't missed a beat.

Mountain Jamming w/ The Allman Brothers Band

The first thing I see as I enter the top of Red Rocks is the full moon just barely sitting on the Colorado horizon. It's got that dusky, orange glow and an uncanny resemblance of, well, dare I say, a Georgia peach. It sat center-stage and shined like a beacon getting brighter and brighter the higher it went.
