Pterodactyl Problems to perform an unplugged benefit show for persons with Dementia
TO ALL MEDIA – February 19, 2019
“From Dementia sufferers to kids in long-term care, we want to perform for and bring our original music to diverse and often marginalized audiences”, says Pterodactyl Problems
“We want to encourage all Toronto bands to give back and take the time to perform for so many of those that just don’t have an opportunity to experience live original music”, says frontman Davey White.
Unplugged benefit concert scheduled for this Friday Feb 22nd, 1:00pm at the Dotsa Bitove Wellness Academy
White continues, “There’s so many folks that experience things differently or are in a different place in their lives and I feel rock and roll is as much for them as it is for anyone. We have to do what we can each day to celebrate the love and joy that we can bring to others and to ourselves.”.
According to the band’s manager Greg Neely, “It’s important to us to turn the spotlight on how artists can do more to embrace community engagement and bring their talents to help enrich the lives of people that are often forgotten or ignored in society. There is nothing more powerful than art and human connection for enhancing quality of life.
