Renaissance Youth Center is proud to present the dynamic and talented, Bronx-based Music With A Message (MWAM) Band! MWAM captivates audiences of all ages delivering powerful messages through soulful renditions of classic songs and innovative original compositions that emphasize issues such as gun violence, asthma (“Asthma Can’t Win”), homelessness (“We Need You”), and more lighthearted songs like “Pull Your Pants Up”.  Ranging in ages from 6-21, this twenty-five member group is currently hard at work, preparing for their annual Summer Tour, where they are scheduled to perform 50-60 shows between June and early September.  With performances at local parks and centers as well as larger events at Six Flags, Hershey Park, and Orchard Beach under their belt, the MWAM Band are conscious-minded youth, with raw talent, which they use to inspire positive changes within their communities.
