May 18th, 2017

by Pipi CGMM

These are the two brilliant minds behind the music you experience at Clean Green Music Machine Live shows.

Jeff Bova and Hiro Iida.

We are so so grateful that these two lifelong friends believe in CGMM’s mission and because of that, have shared their incredible talent with all of us.

They stopped by to help us at rehearsal yesterday. What a treat to be in their presence – oh the places they have been!

 

 

 

 

We’re getting ready to come see you!

CGMM Founder Rocks!

April 30th, 2017

by Pipi CGMM

Mark Files Schwaller, the founder of CGMM, walks the talk! Here’s a picture of him playing a set with his band Melodeego at the People’s Climate Action in Boston MA this past Saturday. Melodeego was joined onstage by Tem and Cita of the group Tem Blessed. So many great people working hard to inspire us all to take better care of our planet but what humanity really needs is an empowered next generation!

Go Clean Green kids! You are our Heroes of Hope!

Kids in the U.S. are suing the government for not protecting their future! They prove that kids certainly can change the world especially when they inspire grown-ups to step up and help them.

Make your voices heard!!! Go Clean Green Go!

Pretty Panther Pride filming for the show!

Hi my name is Aspen and I am one of the members of Pretty Panther Pride. Pretty Panther Pride is a pop music group – we focus our energy on songs that make people think a little bit deeper.

This is a picture of us filming a part for the CGMM Turn It Up show with Director Paris Qualles behind the camera checking the shot. You’ll see us on the big screen when the show comes to your school. You’ll also hear our voices in the songs in the show when its time for you to sing along!

We are becoming Heroes of Hope for CGMM and we’re going to videotape the whole process so that you can get some ideas about how you can join us in helping the planet. The earth needs all of us kids to step up and take care of it – now more than ever.

We look forward to meeting you here on the CGMM Collaboratory very soon. Let us know if you have a music group so that we can swap stories!

From The New York Times:

Sowing Climate Doubt Among Schoolteachers – A group known for attacking climate science has set its sights on America’s public schools.

Its a kind of madness you (I) would think impossible in a sane, caring, healthy society.

This is just one example of why we need to be vigilant in sharing a message, not just of environmental justice – but of love, compassion and the fact that “We are all connected: to each other, biologically; to the earth, chemically; to the rest of the universe, atomically.” -Neil Degrasse Tyson

When scientific fact – truth – is trumped by well funded, profit-motivated disinformation campaigns and powerful lobbies co-opting political influence, we get to experience the fact that the spectrum of human nature includes the very real possibility of beliefs that manifest in some deeply challenging behaviors.

For those (sane) among us to whom this truth is evident, much is required… GO Clean Green Music Machine!!!
