Tedeschi Trucks Band, coming to KettleHouse Amphitheater in Bonner Aug. 2, aligns with Craft For Causes, a non-profit dedicated to bringing together the booming craft brew industry with live music in support of charitable causes.

This summer, as Tedeschi Trucks Band rolls its Wheels of Soul tour into 20 cities across America, Craft For Causes has involved 41 of the nation’s craft beer makers to develop some creative cool brews especially for the hotly-anticipated shows.

In the month preceding the Wheels of Soul date (July 1 – Aug. 1), KettleHouse Brewing will feature a limited-edition “Wheels of Soul” beer in their tap rooms specifically themed for TTB’s annual summer run.  Remaining beer will also be available for purchase at the concert on Aug, 2.

This third annual edition of Wheels of Soul will feature the Grammy-winning rock-and-soul powerhouse, Tedeschi Trucks Band, joined by guests The Wood Brothers and Hot Tuna. Learn more at logjampresents.com.

KettleHouse Brewing will assist in fundraising and promotion of the special brews contributing to the charitable efforts of the collaboration with the goal of providing musical instruments for underprivileged youth in Missoula.

Craft for Causes founder John Nichols is thrilled to spotlight this potential lasting philanthropic alliance between the band, brewers, and their community. “I wanted to create something where everybody wins, and we will leave behind, literally, a trail of musical instruments for children in these cities,” says Nichols.

This year’s unique collaboration aims to raise $100,000, which will benefit a charity that Tedeschi Trucks Band has supported in different ways over the years, Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation (MHOF).  The national non-profit organization donates high-quality musical instruments to deserving under-funded music programs in schools across the country.
