It’s well-known that many school music programs have experienced troubles with funding over the past few years. Euge Groove wants to help where he can, which is why he’s donated his personal Selmer Ref 54 tenor saxophone to the band program at South Hagerstown High School in Maryland, which he graduated from in 1980.
The saxophone, valued at $9,250, will be raffled off. Euge says the sax was the main one that he toured and recorded with for three years. He also used it on his Just Feels Right album, which featured the smooth jazz hits “Get Em Goin’” and “Chillaxin.”
If you want to help by purchasing a $25 raffle ticket, you can go to eugegroove.com, where Euge has a link to the school’s site.Posted by Brian Soergel at July 23, 2008 3:38 PM
