VENTURA, Calif. - The Majestic Ventura Theater is giving local bands a chance to showcase their talent while giving back to the community in a big way.
Disrupted Euphoria is a local def groove band based out of Moorpark. Last month, this up-and-coming band got to perform in front of some big lights..
“We have never played on a stage quite this big before,” said Hannah Ribble, the vocalist for Disrupted Euphoria.
The Ventura Theatre invited the band to play during the Notes for Notes fund raising event, a charity concert highlighting local bands with a portion of the proceeds going to the foundation.
“They make it so that kids who normally wouldn’t have an opportunity to follow their passion for music whether its learning an instrument or spending time in the studio, they would have access to that for little to no cost,” said Ribble. “So once we hear that is what it was for, we jumped on it, like of course.”
This iconic theater decided to continue hosting local bands, giving them a chance to showcase their talents. Concerts for a cause was born.
“In addition to that because we are very community based we wanted to give a little bit back to the community so what we do is, portions of the ticket sales of all the local shows we are doing are going to certain charities that are selected,” said Stefan Brigati, who is the Majestic Ventura Theater promoter.
Just last month the theater staged a “Rockin for Autism” concert fundraiser where kids with autism were also invited to come out and dance along for the cause.
“What is great about that is that we are allowing people to come in and find out about those charities as well as our amazing local talent and updating people on the diseases or what ever the cause might be,” said Brigati. “We have the people from those foundations come out here and do speeches in between the set changes, so we are really promoting awareness as well as showing off our great local talent.”
The next concert for a cause is planned for June 8, partnering with the cystic fibrosis foundation.
“Also it is a really great opportunity to show what we can do locally, together as a community to help eachother out,” said Brigati.
