Leo Pelekh, co lead with his brother Boris of Hey Guy, met Monique Aiken with our Houston connection through a friend while she was in NYC on business. He was inspired by her heart to help the orphans, and he wanted to help too. So we’re going to NYC to get the word out and raise funds for the HIV/AIDS orphans.

In Leo’s words:

“As some of you may know Hey Guy was long looking for a way to get involved in a good cause while doing what we do best — manning coatcheck … playing music. We are very fortunate that 200 Orphanages Worldwide and Angel of Mecy House of Precious have presented us with such opportunity. In late September fifteen volunteers are going to Cameroon to build an orphanage for HIV positive children, as part of a bigger effort to build two hundred orphanages in places where they are needed most.”

Inspired by that wonderful effort, and with the help of many friends Hey Guy launched a Rock Good initiative that aims to harness the creative energies of NYC Indie bands for good causes. This is the first event in this series held at the The Knitting Factory featuring, among others, SHINOBI NINJA, Peculiar Gentlemen, Against The Wall and, surprisingly, hey guy and benefiting  200 Orphanages Worldwide for the Angel of Mercy House of Precious Project. Please join  in celebration of this great effort. http://rockgood.org
