Music Lifeboat’s Make Noise: The Power of Music and Community EVENT SUNDAY, JUNE 7 th. The night was a huge success, took place at two venues.  At 5:30 pm there was a delightful reception and silent auction at the LA Film School. The ambiance was incredibly friendly and  relaxing with live jazz and delicious food and wine from PAPACHINO’S.


Music Lifeboat is a nonprofit organization founded by Brandon Bernstein, Terry Carter and Scott Loring advocating music education and performance. On June 7th, 2015, Music Lifeboat hosted the fundraiser, Make Noise: The Power of Music and Community at the LA Film School and The Ivar Theatre in Hollywood from 5:00 to 9:00pm.

For the first part of the evening, the guests enjoyed hors-d’oeuvres and listened to a live jazz band at the LA Film School, as they perused the auction items on display – an impressive array of guitars and music memorabilia. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be divided between four non-profit organizations: Music Lifeboat, Grades of Green, The Fender Music Foundation, and The Midnight Mission. Papachino’s Grill & Greens ( provided the appetizers and an open bar. The restaurant offered an assortment of scrumptious fare including, but not limited to, vegan and chicken skewers, meat balls, asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, shrimp with cocktail sauce, goat cheese and brie with green grapes, steak bites and tasty pastries.

During the Listening Hour of the program, Gary Moore, host of radio station KLOS, 95.5, interviewed Robby Krieger on the stage at the Ivar Theatre set up with an armchair, couch and a shelf of record albums. Robby Krieger, guitarist extraordinaire of The Doors, penned the now classic songs “Light My Fire,” “Love Me Two Times,” “Touch Me,” and “Love Her Madly”. Moore inquired about Robby’s early days of youth and how he ended up as a member of The Doors. The audience then listened to several pieces of vinyl that Robby had picked from his own collection. Selections included “Play with Fire” performed by the Rolling Stones, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott’s version of “If I Were a Carpenter”, and a raga with Ravi Shankar on sitar.

Next, the guests were entertained by a string quartet performing a wonderful rendition of Antonín Dvořák’s String Quartet No.12, Op.96 “American”. Members of the quartet from the LA Philharmonic included Jin Shan Dai, Violinist; Dana Hansen, Violist; and Gloria Lum, Cellist. Jason Uyeyama, Violinist, also part of the quartet, is a Director from La Sierra University. For the finale, Robby Krieger and his son, Waylon, joined the quartet in a performance of “Spanish Caravan” by The Doors, playing classical guitar in a fugue like rally with the string quartet. It was a real treat to hear so many wonderful musicians live, running the gamut from cocktail jazz, 60’s rock and roll, and Dvořák.
