Dave Matthews Band Listening Party to Benefit Big Cat Rescue

Dave Matthews Band Listening Party

We just found out today that Big Cat Rescue won the right to have an exclusive Dave Matthews Band Listening Party.  Only 100 such parties will be held around the country and winners were chosen based upon the largest number of people to RSVP on Facebook.  (783 people RSVP'd on Facebook but many are from outside the Tampa Bay area and cannot actually attend)

The new album is Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King! The DMB has been playing music from the new album on their Spring concert tour, and the new album is a great tribute to Leroi Moore, their founding Saxophonist!  The CD isn't available to the public yet.

Skipper's Smokehouse is providing the venue for us at no charge.  The $10 door charge will be donated to Big Cat Rescue and we will be giving Two for One Passes to each patron (a $25 value) and a raffle ticket to win an Ultimate Keeper Tour ($100 value) to every one who comes dressed in Mardi gras theme. 

The party is this weekend so we only have a couple of days to promote it.  (The party date and winner notification date were selected by the Dave Matthews Band contest) The Dave Matthews Band Listening Party will be at Skippers Smokehouse on May 23 from 1 PM – 4 PM.  910 Skipper Road Tampa, FL 33613 813 971-0666  For questions contact Jamie Veronica at 813.323.3263 or SaveTheCats@BigCatRescue.org

Dave Matthews Band Listening Party to benefit Big Cat Rescue! 

Thanks to many of you who RSVP'd on FaceBook, Big Cat Rescue is one of the top 100 winners in the Dave Matthews Band contest for an exclusive Listening Party.  Now you can help us win the grand prize, which includes having Big Cat Rescue's President, and Dave Matthews Maven, Jamie Veronica meet the band in person.  The Dave Matthews Band is known for their charity to the community and their Bama Works Foundation funds environmental needs and those of children with special challenges.  We are certain that if Jamie Veronica gets five minutes to tell the Dave Matthews Band about Big Cat Rescue they will become a powerful voice for the big cats.

Here is how you can make that happen.

The Grand Prize Winner will be chosen based upon the best video tape of the 100 winning Listening Parties across the U.S.  The Grand Prize winner will be selected based on the following criteria:

i. Total number of guests in attendance. So please come to Skippers Smokehouse on May 23 from 1 PM – 4 PM.

ii. Degree to which entrant creatively incorporates thematic elements of the album titled, ‘Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King.”  So put on your most outrageous Mardi gras masks, beads and attire to enhance the party atmosphere.  Prizes for best costumes will be awarded and it qualifies you for a raffle ticket.

iii. Degree to which entrant creatively presents the music (individually and collectively of new album).   So having you groove to the Big Whiskey & Groogrux King album in your Mardi gras party gear will make our video the best!

You will be given the unique opportunity to listen to an advance copy of, the soon to be released, Dave Matthews Band CD at Skippers Smokehouse on May 23 from 1 PM – 4 PM.  The $10 door charge will all be donated to Big Cat Rescue, but we will give you a Two for One Pass to see the cats (a $25. value) and if you come in Mardi gras theme you will get a free raffle entry into our drawing for The Ultimate Keeper Tour.

Come out and enjoy an advance listening party for the great new album from the Dave Matthews Band…Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King! They've been playing music from the new album on their Spring concert tour, and the new album is a great tribute to Leroi Moore, their founding Saxophonist!

Sponsored by Skipper’s Smokehouse and hosted by Polar Leasing Company’s Southeast Rep, Matthew Clark, and Big Cat Rescue's own Jamie Veronica, the party will kick off the Memorial Day weekend in a big way…

And will help a great local cause in the process…Big Cat Rescue!

So, come on out and have a great time listening to the great new music from the Dave Matthews Band…and help a great cause at the same time!
