Velodyne is sponsoring a VMA event to benefit VH1 Save The Music Foundation today in Los Angeles. We believe very strongly in restoring instrumental music education to America’s public schools. Learning to play a musical instrument, especially at a young age, offers a variety of benefits, ranging from stress relief to doing better at school. Music can benefit a child’s reading age, IQ and the development of parts of the brain integral in learning. We had 2 subwoofers custom painted by Force 129 from the Anno Domini gallery in San Jose, CA which will be donated to VH1 Save the Music and The Avril Lavigne Foundation (R.O.C.K.S.) for disadvantaged youth.
The NBA Baller Beats for Xbox 360 VMA Lounge benefiting VH1 Save The Music Foundation presented by Velodyne Acoustics features music by Ian Desdune (Regina King’s son), a special performance by Platinum-selling duo Karmin, and music by Demetrius (Timbaland’s son). At the afterparty in L.A., Timbaland will debut his new liqueur, Le Sutra, for the first time.
