Pa. band raises money for Hurricane Sandy relief

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The bigger the audience, the bigger the effort. Midstate musicians Wendy and Reese Crane are playing gigs to collect supplies and raise awareness of Hurricane Sandy relief aid.

Creekside Soul hopes to help save souls through the universal language of music. The Perry County duo will strum and sing on midstate stages in the next couple weeks with one cause in mind: Sandy relief.

Lifelong musician Crane believes music is the ultimate unifier.

"It's a great way to bring people together for a cause. They get to enjoy the music, for one. They get to enjoy the culture of music and the culture of that entertainment," he said. "But, at the same time, they can be brought together and unified by it."

Organizations are asking for money, water, food and even your time to send to New York and New Jersey to aid thousands of people struggling after Sandy's wrath.

You might ask, how can one couple help? That's a question the Crane's were quick to answer.

"The response inside of me personally is something I couldn't ignore," said Reese.

After playing across the pond in Europe and meeting people through decades of life on the road, this band is in tune with many people.

"I have the resources, I have the time, I have networking capabilities," said Crane.

Creekside Soul is looking to expand its duo into an army of volunteers. You can head to their website, www.creeksidesoul.com, to become a member.

"I can't sit still with all of this energy inside of me and watch other people who don't have what I do. So, I have to respond to that call," Crane said.
