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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Junior, Hinkley High School, Colorado

I loved your music, really appreciate that the band is doing this because many of us don’t know how to save money. Unfortunately, we live in a world where everything is money and we all need to know how to save it and be responsible with it.

Junior, Hinkley High School, Colorado

Love your guys music. I think the way you guys go to different schools in different states and teach us how to start early with saving money to make a life and not to be struggling is amazing and I love it!

Senior, Gateway High School, CO

I love how well the music was written. It was so catchy which made me want to listen to more. What I thought was great is that the students get to learn about real world situations which no one else teaches.

Seventh Grader, Omar D Blair School, Denver, CO

Thank you guys so much. I love your music. I’ve been listing all day long after you came to my school today. Thank you for telling me to save money and I will open a savings account for myself.

Junior, Jamestown High School, ND

You guys were awesome when you came to my school. I really enjoyed the performance, and the presentation and speech about budgeting and managing money really got to me, it got me thinking. I will definitely be using this. Thank you for that! And thanks for the great music!

Teacher, Beach High School, ND

Best assembly (tie with Kat Perkins) in my 18 years of education at Beach High School. The music was outstanding and the message was even better. Young adults look up to musicians it is very refreshing to see a band that can put out a great product and be a POSITIVE role model. I would recommend this band to any high school their message needs to be heard. Keep rocking! You made a difference today in the lives of our students.

Awesome…..music transcends all ….. it is a fresh way to reach out to our youth and engage them in learning, planning, and preparing for their financial future….. start early and avoid others missteps! The kids got their lightbulbs turned on and the concert captured and enticed them to act, listen and learn. — Lisa Detanna, Managing Director and Senior Vice President, Investments Global Wealth Solutions Group of Raymond James
