Power Saves The Music is an auction created by my movie "Adventures of Power" (http://AirDrummer.com) to support the Vh1 Save the Music Foundation, which is working to preserve music-education in public schools. We have raised enough to help the Foundation restore a full music program, and will be re-launching shortly in order to complete a new school program ourselves!

"Adventures of Power" is a comedy about air-drumming and the American Dream, and the idea for the auction came about in a conversation I had with Rush drummer Neil Peart about the importance of music education in the development of the human brain and soul. This interview is also available on the Power DVD here: http://amzn.to/eyJBG0

Ari Gold's first feature film Adventures of Power, an epic comedy about air-drumming & the American dream, is available here and on Showtime.

Ari has won a Student Academy Award and dozens of international prizes for his short films and music videos. As an actor, Ari stars in "Adventures of Power," and won "Stoner of the Year" from High Times Magazine. He sings and plays ukulele in The Honey Brothers (with Adrian Grenier) and Gold Brothers (with his twin brother Ethan).

Yes, his name was stolen by a TV show, and no, he was not paid for it. He is not an agent, so please don't ask him to introduce you to Vinny. Vinny doesn't exist.
