On Thursday, January 30th, Modern Daybreak performed at a fundraiser to support Dominican University's Alternative Break Immersion program. This program empowers students to experience a life-changing volunteer trip to different places around the world such as Selma, Tijuana, and Nazareth Farm to name a few. We got to hear the stories of how some of these students helped to rebuild neighborhoods and learn about different systems of oppression and privilege in the world. The event also featured a silent auction, homemade tamales, and a bar. The Wire in Berwyn, IL was a fantastic host for this fundraiser.
Modern Daybreak was the opening act of the night and the music was met with dancing, clapping, and cheering. The good vibes were all there. The second set featured our own Justin and Omar with guest performers (and Justin's long time friends) Kayla Jackson and Arthur Wolff. Both are fantastic musicians. The group covered songs from artists including Ray LaMontagne and Allen Stone. Justin, Kayla, and Arthur sang powerful, emotion-evoking three-part harmonies that reflected the years of friendship between them.
It was an honor to be a part of this annual event and we look forward to supporting the next one!
