River Runs: BDL and Volunteer River Cleanup (Love Bus Event)

We're excited about our next Love Bus charity event, which is a river cleanup in Asheville, NC the morning of our March 24 show at Jack of the Wood.  We also want to take a second and announce a very special guest for this show: the Aaron Burdett Band will be opening for us.  Aaron is one of the best songwriters in the state and we are always proud to perform with him.  I'll post a YouTube clip of one of his songs, "You Still Amaze Me,"  below.   Please take a second to check it out and visit his page.

“River Runs: Volunteer River Cleanup” is a family-friendly river cleanup event organized by Asheville GreenWorks, a nonprofit working for a clean and green Buncombe County, and the Love Bus. Call for Volunteers: fans, friends and any community members are asked to participate with Asheville GreenWorks and members of Big Daddy Love for this event on Saturday, March 24th, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m to help remove debris and litter from the Swannanoa River waterways. No registration required, just show up!

Volunteers should meet outdoors at 387 Swannanoa River Road, Asheville, NC. This is by the I-240 bridge, on Swannanoa River Road (directly across from the U-Haul Rental Dealership), on the left-hand side of the road in a gravel pull-off by the water. Park in the gravel parking area and not in the U-Haul lot. A Google map is available for the meet up location at:

• Groups and families with children (student groups participating)

• Wear layered clothes that can get wet/dirty

• Rubber boots/galoshes recommended

• Cleanup gear, first aid equipment, and drinking water for event provided

• Photo opportunity with band members and giveaways for participants

Following the “River Runs: Volunteer River Cleanup” event, we'll be performing at Jack of the Wood (95 Patton Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801) on March 24th, 2012 starting at 9:30pm.  More about Big Daddy Love and show details can be found hereAaron Burdett will be opening.

Please help us spread the word! We look forward to seeing you out at the river!
