Brothers Gow Music Foundation
Ocean Beach, CA • 2013 - Present
Brothers Gow Music Foundation (BGMF) is a non-profit with the primary goal of donating instruments to the K-12 classrooms of San Diego. Members of Brothers Gow know the value of music education first hand, and are intent on contributing efforts to keep music accessible to the youth of Southern California. With budget cutting in the arts and humanities in San Diego, music programs have been the first go. The first fundraiser held in Ocean Beach (2013) raised enough money to put a guitar in each of the 18 classrooms of Ocean Beach Elementary. From there several more fundraisers have been held, with stringed intstruments being donated to Dana Middle School, as well as collaborative programs with Point Loma High School, and the Society for Autism
In the Fall of 2015, Brothers Gow was delighted and humbled to be awarded “Programs for Youth Award” by the Ocean Beach Town Council and “Certificate of Special Recognition” by the House of Representatives for their philanthropic contributions to their home town. The band looks forward to what the future will bring in 2016 for their local community and continuing to spread the power of music to their beloved hometown.
The Gow Chow
East Bay, CA • 2011 - PRESENT
The Gow Chow was the first and only mobile food truck in the San Francisco area promoting local band - Brothers Gow. Bass player Carson Church created The Gow Chow as unique way to promote the band, as-well as provide income for the band members. The truck served a delicious "Tex-Mex" style inspired by flavors from the Southwest. Popular items included the famous Tucson "Sonoran Dog" and Flagstaff staple "The Burrito Burger". With its state of the art sound system playing Brothers Gow as well as its 37in HD TV, The Gow Chow was taking food trucks to a new level. Carson then sold the Business in 2012 when the band moved to San Diego. The Truck is still up and running today in the Mt. View area of San Francisco. Follow them on yelp, facebook, or twitter to find the trucks daily location. We cant thank all the fans of the East Bay enough for the support of The Gow Chow! - www.brothersgowchow.co
