I keep an eye out on social media to stay up to date with what's happening in the local area.
Last week I saw a post saying that a high school band was going to be playing a fundraiser at the local hardware store. They were after people to turn up and take some pics for them.
So on Saturday I grabbed my camera and headed over, not knowing what to expect.
What I found was two young guys playing their hearts out. They had a small collection of friends in the audience, listening and looking after their video recording, and a whole lot of people dropping donations in their bucket as they went in and out of the store. It didn't seem to matter whether people liked the music or not. They were happy to support a good cause, and encourage these young guys doing something they were obviously enjoying.
After the gig I caught up with Hayden and Jackson to talk about their music and their inspiration for running a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. They had a lot to say about their dedication to music, the rock star lifestyle, and their plans for the future.
