Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TAMPA, Fla. - Feb 13, 2017 - Astro Lasso is pleased to announce the “Mentoring through Music” experience with its partner Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. The band’s founders, Jordan Davis and Tristan Martin, along with manager Frankie Muniz (Malcom on “Malcom in the Middle”), believe in the power of music and what it can bring to the mentoring experience. Whether it’s taking in a local show, playing air guitar, taking music lessons, or singing karaoke, music can bring mentors (“Bigs”) and their Little Brothers and Sisters together in a fun and healthy way.
Astro Lasso hits the road on a 25+ city national tour opening for We the Kings starting in Nashville, Tennessee on Feb. 17. On stops across the country, the band will provide music-related experiences coordinated with local Big Brothers Big Sisters affiliates, including personal appearances, acoustic performances, and concert meet-and-greets.
“Music has made a real impact on our lives,” said Jordan Davis. “Since Tristan and I were kids we were making memories while making music – I can’t imagine life without it.”
“We love the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Tristan Martin. “Kids today face so many challenges – a Big Brother or Sister at a time when a young person is confronted with adversity could be a life-changing experience.”
“Jordan and Tristan are great role models for our Bigs and Littles alike,” said Pam Iorio, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. “Their passion for music is contagious and their generosity is appreciated. ‘The Mentoring through Music Experience’ is a great opportunity for Bigs and Littles to bond and build relationships that will make a positive impact.”
Martin and Davis hope to expand their partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters over time, including inviting other musicians to join them in supporting the organization.
