I want to be involved in helping where I can to make things better,he explains. And I found that oftentimes you do that through happy music, not necessarily through angry music, but making music that inspires people to get through difficult times.
Not surprisingly, Franti is a practitioner of yoga, and fans have the opportunity to join him in his downward-facing dogs at todays Harvest Ball and CorePower Workshop. From 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Broomfields 1STBANK Center, 11450 Broomfield Lane, CorePower Yoga will host a workshop, and Franti will provide live acoustic music for the duration. At 8 p.m. (after a sold-out 2 p.m. matinee), Michael Franti & Spearhead will play a full concert at the center. Tickets for the workshop (which benefit the Gathering Place) and concert are $75, and admission is $37.50 for the concert only; visit http://michaelfranti.com/ for information and to purchase tickets.
