Celebs take part in Wanna Play Music Week
Kevin Bacon and Yoko Ono were among the celebrities turning out for National Wanna Play Music Week in the US.
The annual event, which concluded yesterday (May 11th), is organised by the National Association of Music Merchants and attempts to raise awareness of the benefits of music playing and convince people of all ages to give it a try.
Bacon and his composer brother Michael, who make up The Bacon Brothers band, performed to a group of students to promote music, while Ono visited various locations on the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.
The house band from late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! also took part.
Speaking afterwards, Bacon said: "Playing a musical instrument can help drive a passion that can last a lifetime and play an integral part in maintaining a healthy mind and body."
The Bacon Brothers released their sixth album, New Years Day, in November last year.Posted on 12 May 2009 13:35 to category : Band / Celebrity News
