Lifeshop: A Conversation with Wayne Kramer (MC5) and Harold Owens (MusiCares)

Send Me A Friend, a project of Positive Vibrations Foundation and Imagine Recovery are proud to announce the next installment of our Lifeshop series presented by the Gia Maione Prima Foundation featuring legendary musician Wayne Kramer in conversation with Harold Owens from MusiCares. As a founding member of the seminal Detroit band, the MC5, Wayne was on the cutting edge of the rise of punk music, and he also has a profound story of overcoming addiction and reinventing his career in music. Harold, who co-presented a Lifeshop with Ivan Neville last fall, is the Senior Director of Health and Human Services for MusiCares, the non-profit arm of the Recording Academy, and has helped countless musicians find sobriety over the last 20+ years.

Food and beverages will be served.
