This is the trailer for the soon to be released documentary – Matilija Magic. The Poor Elijah Foundation is a national, non-profit organization of musicians, lawyers, entertainment professionals and artists dedicated to assisting musicians succeed in the music industry. Founded in 2010, PEF has 6000 members and online supporters, served from offices in Ventura, California. PEF is in the process of applying for tax exemption status. The short and long term plan is to raise monies through the production and promotion of charitable musical events, art exhibits, DVDs, CDs, and any other such fund-raising that are permitted under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Once all corporation costs are met; the remaining monies raised will go directly to the education/mentoring of and or assisting the musicians with financial relief.

If you’re under the age of 40 or were living under a rock in the ’60’s and early ’70’s — you may not realize the impact Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett, along with many of their friends, had on the music we’ve been listening to all these years. They raised the bar for jammin’! The Wall Street Journal published a good article this week on the history of the band.

On a personal note … My boyfriend, Craig Thomson, had an older brother that played bass on 2 of Delaney and Bonnie’s albums. Craig was lucky enough to learn a few licks from their band’s drummer, Chuck Morgan. He may not have continued to pursue his dream as a professional musician had it not been for Chuck’s mentoring and encouragement in those early years.
