Tonight! Box of Rocks… see you there!

events, music therapy

Music therapy alert: Tonight I’ll perform with the band Box of Rocks at Island Grill from 8pm ’til 12am.

Maybe, just maybe, the Box of Rocks could maybe, just maybe, play, someday at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. That’d be quite the extraordinary journey, but only if we don’t stop believin’.

Until then, Box of Rocks will settle as being little pieces of gravel in the big pond of Fort Collins.

There’s no quick way to answer that, for no stone will be left unturned; no rock star will be forgotten.

You, too, can change the world: you don’t need to play trumpet or dissect a brain

causes, events, music therapy

We all help the world in different ways. I suppose the special skill set I have to offer the universe includes quirky things like dissecting brains with kids, or attempting to rock the minds of adults. I try.

One of my fave causes is Boys & Girls Clubs, for they help young people — especially those who need us most — to become productive, caring, responsible beings.

Last weekend, KD & The Painkillers (a band I perform in) played at a fundraiser for Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County.

If you missed the show but would like to change the world by donating to BGCs of Larimer, click here.

Last spring, I dissected a brain with the kiddos at Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne:

Pick a brain, literally: local youth to partake in human brain dissection

I’m excited for my visit tomorrow at the CareerLaunch program of Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne. Here’s the news release:

CHEYENNE, Wyoming, May 22, 2018 – Local neurologist Dr. Tim Allen, MD from Neurology Specialists of the Rockies (NSR) will appear at Boys & Girls Club of Cheyenne (BGCC) on Wednesday, May 23, 5:00pm – 6:00pm to discuss neurology, dissect a human brain and encourage careers in medicine.

“When kids see a real brain and can speak with a doctor in a down-to-earth manner, then the idea of a profession in medicine becomes a reality,” says Dr. Allen, who practices at NSR in Cheyenne.

Approximately 10-15 sixth and seventh-graders are expected to attend.

“If even one child’s interest is sparked to become a doctor after seeing my presentation at Boys & Girls Club, it’s a great thing for humanity, says Dr. Allen. “As an MD, they’ll impact thousands of lives.”

Dr. Allen will show samples of a male and female adult brain. He’ll discuss brain myths, neuroplasticity, the mental health/brain connection, and how to care for your brain.

His visit marks BGCC’s last CareerLaunch demonstration of the school year.
