9th Grader, Sparkman High, AL

You guys are amazing artists! Before you came to my school I didn’t care much about saving money. Then you made your glorious speech and I realized money is actually an important part of life. When you guys started singing, a rush of excitement ran through my body!! It was a new experience that I really enjoyed. You made me want to listen to your music everyday.

Freshman, Conwell Egan Catholic High School, PA

I really enjoy your music, and think you guys are super talented. Thank you for telling me the proper way to save money so that I can be more successful in my future. I will definitely look into saving money, and tell others what I learned from you!

Teacher, Conrad Weiser High School, PA

Thanks for the first-rate performance and for helping our students see the importance of smart money management early in life.

Sophomore, Hempfield Area High School, PA

It’s super awesome that you go around the US and teach teenagers about savings accounts, financial literacy, and the like, something we need to know but aren’t directly told. Keep making great music and spreading the good word!

Freshman, Conrad Weiser High School, PA

Hi here, I was in the audience, First of all, your music was amazing, and thank you for teaching me about finance. I knew that I needed to manage my money wisely, but you guys explained what it really means, and thank you for that.

Junior, Hempfield Area High School, PA

Thanks for visiting our school and teaching us so much! I was actually genuinely wondering if I would ever learn financial skills in school. You guys really helped us out! Also, you guys are an amazing band! Keep shining.

Freshman, Hempfield Area High School, PA

Thank you so much for the great opportunity and information you provided me with today. I will continue to use it for the rest of my life.

Junior, Hempfield Area High School, PA

Hey guys! I absolutely loved your performance today. For a girl going to study law after high school I received a lot of insight on finances. Thank you!

Senior, Hempfield Area Senior High School, PA

I learned a lot from you guys on how to be smarter with my money. I will definitely be looking into an IRA. Thank you for all of your help and information! Your music rocks!

Senior, Hempfield Area Senior High School, PA

Great show and message! We are never taught things like this in school, and although I am financially literate, I know my peers are not. It’s really cool that you guys, a rock band, are humble enough and care about the future and understanding of the upcoming generation behind you. Thanks!

Sixth Grader, Floyd Middle School, Atlanta, GA

I like how you guys don’t just play rock and roll but you teach kids the benefits of financial literacy.This is an awesome way to teach financial literacy.

Gooding you are amazing and inspired me to save now. Since I’m going into the military when I’m older it’s going to be easy to save and not touch my money. This could help me help my mom pay off all her bills and probably have some for myself.

Sixth Grader, Herbert A. Amons

Thank you so much for coming to perform for us. I was really touched by your music and thought of what I want to have in life. Thank so much

GOODING came to Dunwoody High School today and they were FABULOUS!!! We had a mixed crowd of 9th-12th graders of many socio-economic levels and ethnic backgrounds. Gooding was able to connect with ALL OF THEM. The students were so enthusiastic about the music and the message. I heard kids talking about the band in the halls the rest of the day. I can’t thank you enough for helping to make this happen for the students at DHS.

Senior, Dunwoody High School, Dunwoody, GA

You guys put the rock in rock ‘n’ roll! Getting to listen to each one of you play and share your financial advice was an amazing treat for me! Especially since I like rock, but also to get great advice to help my wallet in the long run.

Freshman, Ballard High School, Huxley, IA

Thank you so much for coming to our school and not only singing but also teaching us about financial literacy. I feel more prepared for the future now. Thank you!

Sophomore, Norwalk High School, IA

You guys were awesome! You made us all laugh and taught us important stuff this was the best assembly ever!

Sophomore, Omaha South High School, Omaha, NE

I was really inspired by your performance at Omaha South High School. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to play your music for us and talking to us about how we can be S.M.A.R.T. with our money. Hope to hear more of your music.

Senior, Wichita State University, Wichita, KS

Thank you for coming to Wichita State University last Tuesday. I appreciate you teaching the youth about financial literacy which I did not learn as a teenager. Thank you again!

Junior, Wichita State University, Wichita, KS

Your concert was so good! Your message as well is really inspirational and has helped me figure out what I need to do to be financially stable.

We need this type of education to be the generation that changes the world, thank you for giving us that.
