Own Elton's keyboard

How would you like to tickle ivories that have been tickled by Elton John?

The Madison Area Music Awards (The MAMAS) have scored an awesome gift that could bring in lots of money to help put musical instruments in the hands of kids.

The Artist Relations Group at Yamaha has donated a MOTIF keyboard played and autographed by Sir Elton John. This top-of-the-line Yamaha keyboard is in excellent condition and was part of Elton's gear during his 2008 performances at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
 
To raise funds to put musical instruments in kids' hands, the MAMAs have placed the keyboard on eBay  with a starting bid of $2,000.

The MOTIF keyboard was developed by Yamaha to be the best-sounding synthesizer on the market and features state-of-the-art waveforms, professional-quality expansion capabilities and a stunning range of hyper-realistic drum, piano, string and brass sounds

You can bid on the keyboard here.

Don't have a couple grand but would still like to help the cause? Voting for the Madison Area Music Awards is going on now, and your $5 membership fee will help buy musical instruments for children. More info here!
