Our heroes and soul brothers, Roger Ridley and Grandpa Elliott, return for this Song Around The World, “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” featured on our PFC 2 album. Mark once asked Roger the question, “With a voice as powerful as yours, why are you singing on the streets?” He replied, “I am in the joy business. I come out here to be with the people.” Roger and Grandpa have brought so much joy to the lives of millions, and in this song, we are blessed to see them reunited again. We all shine on, and Roger’s light is as bright as the sun!

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.

  2. It's all great, but Paw Paw Elliot's throwing it down and putting dat stank on it. Maybe I'm just biased cause I'm from the same area. NOLA/Da Boot/Swamp Life/Cajun/Creole/Jambalaya
