True Buffalonians already know who's pictured with me above....it's Robby Takac from the Goo Goo Dolls!  More importantly, his "Music Is Art" program has made a tremendous difference in the lives on WNY youths...and this year it's no different.

Our media partners at WKBW have also joined forces to help promote an incredible new or used instrument drive called "Good Things, Good Music".  You're invited to stop by Robby's own recording studio, GCR Studios at 564 Franklin Street between 5am and 6:30pm.  Monetary donations are also welcomed as instrume3nts need to be refurbished before being donated back to students in WNY.

This incredible community event is capped off with the awesome "Music Is Art" festival on Saturday at Delaware Park.  100 LOCAL bands, artists, vendors, DJs, and more will converge behind the Albright Knox museum for a great day-long event with something for everyone in the family.  And yes, Robby will be on-stage all day long!

I had an incredible opportunity to sit with Robby to talk about these two great initiatives...take a look!
