Mariannas Trench take part in Musicounts Band Aid surprise
written by Scotty Evil

For the music class at Lord Selkirk Elementary in Vancouver, Christmas came early.

Like a herd of cats (cool, music playing ones), the kids were ushered into the school gymnasium thinking they were providing one last form of entry into the MusiCounts Band Aid Program. They thought they were performing a cover of a Marianas Trench song for the benefit of local media.

Little did they know, they had already been selected!

A handful of the kids however had spotted the band members exiting their vehicles out back of the school (oops) so already a buzz was going in the crowd of musicians and singers. Their instructor led them through a practice of the song and then they did it a second time…guitars, drums and a choir of voices…part-way through the curtains on the stage drew back to reveal the band, representatives from MusiCounts and Hot-Topic…

And $10,000 worth of brand new instruments!

The reaction from the students was priceless; everyone attending had a big grin on their faces.

The band clearly was pleased to be a part of this charity event and afterwards took time to field some hard-hitting questions from the eager and excited kids…

“How many dogs do you have?” “What are their names” “Do any of you like cats”

And less serious ones…

“What is the hardest instrument to play” (Chromatic Harmonica)

The band was gracious, signed autographs on varying scraps of paper, then handed out the shiny new guitars and other instruments which the kids proudly carried back to their band-room, smiles as wide as Christmas morning.

In a year of tough stories in the music industry, it was nice to attend and report on something so heart-warming.

BTW Josh Ramsay’s dog is a girl, and named “Bennie and the Jets”
