Eden plans to tap these experiences as president of Alpha Entertainment, an organization designed to help musicians and produce benefits for community-service organizations. Run with his wife, Stephanie, Alpha will offer recording and booking services to bands and take a shot at bringing more diverse acts to the Denver area.
"I'm trying to widen that playing field and bring more of what's conducive to what the people are saying they want," Eden says. "They want more than two or three black acts per summer -- and not only black, but they want more than what's coming here."
For now, though, he's concentrating on the successful completion of the company's first big project.
"I won't judge the success of this benefit by this event alone; I plan to do several other events," he explains. "Last year, Family Tree helped so many at-risk kids and families. I think it's astonishing that there are so many people who really care about what's going on in today's society."
