(NEW YORK, NY) -- Little Steven's Underground Apothecary will present a free stream of The Holiday Video Jukebox on Wednesday, December 15 at 8:00pm ET via Fans.live to support Teachrock.org, which provides free arts integration curriculum and teacher training to nearly 50,000 teachers nationwide. The stream will be available for 72 hours following its original broadcast.
The Holiday Video Jukebox will feature new and archival performances of holiday classics, seasonal chestnuts, and original bangers from Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, Big Freedia, Lawrence, Moonalice, Darlene Love, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings and many more, as well as guest appearances from Downtown Julie Brown, Mark Goodman, and many others.
Launched by Little Steven and the Founders Board of Bono, Jackson Browne, Martin Scorsese, and Bruce Springsteen, TeachRock.org provides free, standards-aligned resources that use the arts to help kids succeed in core disciplines like Science, Math, Technology, and Engineering.
“We’re keeping the Arts in the DNA of the public education system,” said TeachRock founder Stevie Van Zandt. “We’re empowering teachers with a methodology to teach a generation that is smarter, faster, and has absolutely no patience; and we’re eventually going to affect the dropout rate.”
Nearly 50,000 teachers nationwide use TeachRock curriculum, and TeachRock staff works directly with more than 100 school districts in 5 states.
“The videos in this Jukebox are as diverse as our curriculum and the teachers and students we serve,” says TeachRock executive director Bill Carbone. “We’re spinning an evening of music that touches a plethora of genres and celebrates the season broadly.”
