Lazlo's Corner

The holidays may be behind us but the "giving season" is in full swing! is preparing for our third annual benefit for the National Foundation For Transplants (the NFT that has value):

The webathon, which I will be working on with musician Catherine Wacha, will take place the weekend of March 2nd & 3rd, 2024.

The NFT saves lives by removing financial barriers that delay or prevent organ transplantation. One of the many people they have helped is Catherine Wacha, who received a kidney transplant, that was necessary due to having Lupus.

Like our other webathon, the plan is to do a compilation of previously unreleased original songs, and a webathon where musicians pre-record live sets to broadcast during the webathon.

There are 2 ways to be involved:

1. Looking for musicians to pre-record a 30 minute live audio performance exclusively for broadcast during the benefit. The performance should be predominantly original songs (1-2 covers is okay), and should not reference being pre-recorded so when it is broadcast people won't hear a bunch of artists saying they pre-recorded.

Pre-recorded sets will be due by February 16th.

2. I am looking for previously unreleased original songs (which can include acoustic or live versions of previously released songs, remixes, etc.) for this year's compilation. I ask that all songs be original (no covers) and that they remain exclusive to the compilation until June 1st, 2024 (3 months from the webathon). The songs will be due by February 16th, but if you have something ready, please feel free to send it now. Otherwise, if you think you can have something for the compilation, please let me know.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I am happy to answer them, especially since I know I am cramming a lot of info into this e-mail.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
