COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The House of Marley will embark on an epic SoCal road trip, bringing "1Love" to fans during the MARLEY Satisfy Your Soul mobile tour. The House of Marley, a collection of premium quality, eco-friendly personal audio products, will offer fans the chance to check out the new range of MARLEY headphones, engage in music mash-ups, and record a video singing their own version of a classic Marley song, all from a fully restored MARLEY-inspired 1958 VW van.
Now through December, The House of Marley will make several stops along the Pacific coast, including appearances at concert venues, college campuses, retailers and more. Check out the MARLEY Satisfy Your Soul Tour schedule at http://www.houseofmarley.com/tour.
"My father spread messages of love, hope, unity and peace through his music, and we, as a family, must continue to bring these ideals to the new generation to carry forward," said Rohan Marley, Bob Marley's son, on behalf of the family. "We're excited to bring MARLEY audio products, with a focus on using sustainable products and providing exceptional sound, to our fans in Los Angeles and San Diego. Look for our van on the road and join the 1Love movement."
The MARLEY Satisfy Your Soul Tour will help provide funding for Little Kids Rock through 1Love.org, a non-profit sparked by the Marley family dedicated to spreading Bob Marley's message of unity and peace by lifting up a new generation of "young gongs" to strike the hammer for charities, causes, and ideas that can change the world. Consumers are encouraged to text "ONELOVE" to "501501" to donate $10 in support of Little Kids Rock, a non-profit that is restoring and revitalizing music education in our schools, transforming children's lives by providing them with free instruments and music lessons. People who donate from MARLEY Satisfy Your Soul Tour stops will receive a limited edition 1Love bracelet (while supplies last).
"We are thrilled with the opportunity to help Little Kids Rock inspire children to express themselves through music as a healthy, creative outlet," said Donna Mastropasqua, executive director of 1Love.org. "The confidence and self-esteem that music provides is incredibly self-evident, and we're looking forward to helping the program make a difference during The House of Marley's 'Satisfy Your Soul' tour and beyond."
