Music video to raise awareness about Alabama...

2009 SBU grad Eric Smith (he went with us to New Orleans in 2006 on the "big trip") helped put this fund raiser his words:

"we got a group of musicians together a couple of Sundays ago and did our best to give back the only way we could all the way up here without being able to travel down south, and that was by creating this video to raise awareness, a la "We Are the World." "

"a super-group of musicians from half a dozen New York bands released a music video tribute to raise funds for disaster relief efforts in Alabama. The ten devoted yankees got together at Brooklyn music venue and art space Cameo to record a collaborative, semi-improvisational cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's classic 'Sweet Home Alabama' and began circulating the video online to raise awareness and get listeners to care, give and help."
