JOHN MAYER TO PERFORM AIDS/HOMELESS BENEFIT IN NYC NOVEMBER 19, 2004 (click here)

Many entertainers participate in benefits using their music as instruments of goodwill and concern for others. Some musicians share more of their time than others. Heavier Octaves salutes the creative genius and generosity of musicians and artists that use their gifts not only to entertain, but who also teach and lead by example. In the process, they raise the bar of society's consciousness on issues that need collaboration by an entire community to be effectively resolved. Heavier Octaves will occasionally feature such artists in our "Spotlight on the Peoples' Musician/Artist" series. John Mayer is the musician to watch as he "puts his music where his heart is", like some "put their money where their mouth is". Fortunately with him, it appears to be all the same.

Mayer will be performing an intimate concert at the Housing Works Used Books Cafe in New York City. All proceeds will go to Housing Works, a non-profit organization that provides housing, health care, job training, advocacy, and many other services for homeless New Yorkers
living with HIV and Aids. To learn more about the Housing Works organization and its "Live at Home" concert series click on this article's caption above. For more information about John log on to www.johnmayer.com It's not surprising that John has been recently nominated for a "People's Choice" award. His new single "Daughters" is currently in rotation on the heavieroctaves radio broacast. To tune in, click here.

In the meantime, do whatever you can to make a difference.

Peace,
