Bandwagon's charity recording 'Three Sides of Hunger' continues to sell and generate profits for agencies that aid the poor.

Inspired by Bob Geldof's Band Aid recording and Live Aid concert, producer and songwriter Al Gomes wanted to put together a similar effort to aid those less fortunate in America. Gomes founded Bandwagon in 1986, along with publicist Jamie Kurtis, and produced the benefit recording 'Three Sides of Hunger,' and two sold-out televised concerts.

Bandwagon's goal was to elevate awareness of the plight of the poor in America and raise thousands of dollars for those American agencies that aid the hungry and homeless.

Al Gomes and Bandwagon went on to win the coveted Jefferson Award from The Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Foundation for Recognition of Outstanding Public Service. View YouTube clip : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgddTzJ7J-0

'Three Sides of Hunger' features three songs co-written by Gomes and performed by popular recording artists including multi-platinum artist John Cafferty and legendary singer/songwriter Mark Cutler on the song 'Where Home Is' (which also features guitar great Thom Enright), Jim Beaupre of The Probers featured on 'Surrender to Serenity' (along with Dan Moretti on sax), and 'A Piece of Our Hearts' which features soloists including legendary singer-songwriter Cheryl Wheeler and Belly and L7's Gail Greenwood plus a 150-person celebrity chorus consisting of musicians, journalists (including MTV Networks executive producer Bill Flanagan), TV broadcasters, politicians, and service agency heads. All three songs received massive airplay.

'Three Sides of Hunger' was produced by multi-platinum producers Phil Greene and Tom Soares, who've produced New Kids On the Block, John Cafferty and The Beaver Brown Band, Marky Mark, and Joey McIntyre, and mastered by Grammy Award winner Ted Jensen, whose work includes Norah Jones, Billy Joel, Dave Matthews Band, The Who, and The Rolling Stones.

In addition to raising money, during its initial release, Bandwagon donated hundreds of copies of 'Three Sides of Hunger' and time in public relation and publicity services to various agencies throughout the US to raise further money and to help guarantee the success of the agencies' own fundraisers and capital campaigns.

Hunger and homelessness continues to affect increasing numbers of people everyday. You can also help by volunteering at one of the many agencies in your area that provide food and shelter for the hungry and homeless.
