Sacramento's News10.net reports: TESLA recently played for a very small crowd at the home of Paul and Julianne Clem of Sacramento. The band interrupted a nationwide tour to play for the Clems, who are, by their own admission, huge fans.
The Clems were the high bidders in a contest on Sacramento radio station 98 Rock. Their $5,000 bid bought them an in-home gig by TESLA. The money goes to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
The auction was the brainchild of 98 Rock personality Pat Martin. "My son had leukemia when he was two," said Martin. "He's now 14, so this has always been very near and dear to my heart."
By all accounts, it didn't take much to sell TESLA on the idea. "When I asked them to do this, I couldn't even get the sentence out before they [were] saying 'Yes, sure, absolutely, whatever you need,'" said Martin.
The band set up in the Clems living room and played several songs, to the delight of the two dozen or so people crammed into the suburban home. Watch the video here. [Read more]
