Petrel Show The True Spirit of Christmas
With that spirit in mind, the three sisters from Deer Park, Long island, NY who comprise the core of the band Petrel are venturing to Mexico on December 8th to help those in need. The band will be handing out scores of clothes and free toys to needy children at several Mexican villages and then will be performing a free charity concert for several hundred locals in the area.
This sort of work is what sets this group apart from other acts of their age and generation, and the cornerstone on which their legacy will be built. The music they make may last forever, but the charity work is what will make them timeless.
Jessica (vocals), Rebekah (drums and keyboards), and Destiny (guitar) create a hook laden Pop/Rock attack which puts them squarely between Sheryl Crowe, P!nk, Katy Perry and acts like Miley Cyrus and Miranda Cosgrove on your radar, and hopefully in your hearts.
Recently performing live at The Bitter End in NYC for the "Official Fashion Show After Party of Jazmin Whitley's Fashion Line, Li Cari", life seems like a dream for these ready for the next level budding superstars. Need more proof? Petrel just completed a 17-city national tour as the opening act for the popular Razor & Tie label CD Series "Kids Bop", where the sisters performed at such venues as The House of Blues in Chicago, UCLA Royce Hall in California, and Meadowbrook US Cellular Pavilion in Gilford, NH. Next stop for the group was Downtown Disneyland in Anaheim, CA for the "Downtown Disney's Indie Fest USA 2008", where the girls hobnobbed with other performers such as Lucy Walsh & Savvy and Mandy from Radio Disney.
This past summer, proving their worldwide meddle and commitment to charity work, Petrel worked at many villages in Mexico helping dole out food to several thousand needy children and performing a benefit concert for over three thousand Mexican music aficionados. In February of 2008, the girls went to Port au Prince, Haiti to participate in a charity missions outreach and perform their music in front of over forty thousand Haitian music lovers.
