Kansas-Bred Rock Group is Bringing Their Music and Important Lessons to J.C. Harmon Students


Contact: Tammy Dodderidge, communications manager, (913) 279-2225

Using the power of a live rock performance and their own personal story, the band Gooding will provide students at J.C. Harmon High School with valuable life lessons about finance and discipline to help them see their own dreams as possibilities.

Gooding will present its "Funding the Future" program at the school on Thursday, April 24 at an all-school assembly beginning at 1:20 p.m. The concert is being sponsored by American Digital Security (ADT).

"Funding the Future" is a concert, multimedia presentation and talkback program, that focuses on predatory lending, the danger of credit card debt and saving early. Guitarist/singer and namesake Gooding and his band of brothers, Jesse Rich and Billy Driver, have traveled to dozens of middle and high schools to spread this important message to students. Their talk includes exposing the myth of rock stars, athletes and actors who sell the false image of overnight success.

The LA-based/Kansas-bred power trio is proud to bring their music and important lessons to Kansas students.
