Local band takes a stand against bullying
January 18, 2014 by Max
A rock band may not be the first group that comes to mind when thinking about preventing bullying, but that’s exactly what a Rancho Cucamonga band is trying to do with a newly written song on the subject.
Rock five-piece Grieve for Tomorrow, managed by a water polo coach at Alta Loma High School who sees bullying, decided to spread the word about bullying among kids and teenagers and let the bullied kids know they are not alone.
As part of their efforts to raise awareness about bullying, the band wrote a song called ‘Set Me Free’. The lyrics stress that bullying victims are not alone, and urges them to look around them and speak up. The band’s manager, Kevin Nesbit, was inspired to bring the positive message to the forefront after his water polo team attended the funeral of a young person who had been bullied. He and the band hope to unite everyone in an effort to solve the problem of bullying. More information about Grieve for Tomorrow and their new anti-bullying efforts is available on the bands social media pages.
Independent bands can do a lot to spread the word about local events and issues, but promotion in their community can be pivotal to getting the word out. A local printing company can help by creating vibrant marketing tools. Printing up flyers, posters, and even postcards is a fantastic way to keep fans informed of upcoming performances and other news.
