Making Music, Making Peace: When Rock-n-Roll and Religions Work for Peace
25 Mar 2005
Rock-n-roll, R&B, jazz, and hip-hop artists come together for peace at a Boston benefit concert. Tempting Fate Revue is holding a concert to benefit the work of Religions for Peace – USA on March 31, 2005. All proceeds (ticket and CD sales) from their debut concert will go to benefit the New York-based non-profit, which is a national representative coalition of religious leaders and communities working for peace and justice.

All proceeds (ticket and CD sales) from their debut concert will go to benefit the New York-based non-profit, which is a national representative coalition of religious leaders and communities working for peace and justice.

Tempting Fate Revue, a unique writing, production, and performance group, is dedicated to developing original music, raising money for worthy charities, and providing an exciting band and showcase for a rotating group of young, unsigned singers. Two songs from their CD recently won awards from the Great American Song Contest, which is run by songwriters for songwriters. One song won as a top 5 Rap/HipHop/R&B song and another won for "Outstanding Achievement" in lyric-writing. Visit www.temptingfaterevue.com.

Religions for Peace – USA works to foster religious communities working together to build a society of peace and justice. RFP-USA focuses on building community, addressing diversity, and examining the role of the US in the world. Over 50 US religious communities are member communities, and the US chapter is one of 55 national chapters that are a part of the World Conference of Religions for Peace (WCRP). The WCRP capitalizes on the unique assets of religious communities to meet global challenges such as HIV/AIDS and conflict-torn societies. Visit www.rfpusa.org.

The concert will be held March 31, 2005 at Axis, 13 Lansdowne Street, Boston, MA. Ticket holders must be 18 years or older. Doors open at 8 pm, music starts at 9 pm. Tickets are available online for $20 at www.teapartyconcerts.com or at the door for $25.

Tempting Fate Revue’s organizer, Frank Ingari - an LA-based R&B touring pro in the late 70’s, co-founder of the tech band Look & Feel, and co-founder of Everybody’s Business, which raised $2 million for AIDS prevention education - says, “A lot of people might say that rock-n-roll and religion don’t mix, but we want to support worthy causes like religions working together for peace. This was a natural fit for us.” Bud Heckman, Executive Director of RFP-USA, responds, “We are just tickled such a talented array of artists is doing this to support our peace work. Tempting Fate Revue has a big heart and is on the cutting edge of social entrepreneurship.”
