Goodbye Girl Friday Supports Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International with a Special Performance in Flushing Meadows Park
(New York, NY)-October 2004
Brooklyn pop band Goodbye Girl Friday (GGF) will play a set of songs from their new album Silver or Gold at the 2004 Walk to Cure Diabetes on October 3, 2004 in Flushing Meadows Park - Queens, New York. GGF will be joined by another Brooklyn band, Sean Driscoll and Trio Grande to celebrate the efforts of everyone involved with the event.
"We're really happy to be able to support this cause," comments songwriter front-man David Sherman, "people need to be more aware of this serious disease as it continues to grow at an alarming rate".
The Walk to Cure Diabetes is a walkathon, held in more than 200 locations throughout the year, benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. More than 500,000 men, women, and children; including those from 5,000 large corporations and local companies, and 3,500 family teams, will participate this year. The Walk raised more than $74 million last year for diabetes research.
Infectious, soulful British pop-rock trimmed with country, American blues and some rough edges form the ten tracks that are GGF's newest release, Silver or Gold. Building on the critically acclaimed 2002 debut Mr. and Mrs., the self-produced title features bassist Dan Grennes and drummer Andy Sanesi in a familiar rhythmic complement to Sherman's telling electric piano melodies and textured baritone. Silver or Gold is available at www.cdbaby.com, www.starpolish.com, www.towerrecords.com and at select stores.
