Dear Friends,
Thank you for visiting this very worthy cause. My name is Ted Boylan. I live in Alberta , Canada . I’m a music lover and sometimes search YouTube for young talent to support. When I find awesomely talented kids, I sometimes help promote them by driving traffic to their site.

One day I discovered a nine-year-old girl from Mexico named Pau (short for Paulina). She was playing drums to My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson. Wow! I turned up the volume. Watching her drum was amazing, especially 2:59 when she drums while crossing her arms. Amazing. I think I watched it about six times in a row, at least twice daily over a one-year period. The best part was the very end of the video and seeing Pau clap her hands, with that beautiful smile of accomplishment on her face. She won my heart.

I have been diverting traffic to youtube and helping with comments. One day, my comments were answered by The Warning, thanking me. I was just so happy to help this young girl Paulina. And that’s when I learned she has two sisters, Daniela and Alejandra; The Warning is the name of their band. Daniela plays lead guitar and is an amazing singer. Alejandra is incredible on Bass Guitar. These three talented young sisters are amazing musicians and are amazingly close. When one is happy, the others are. I am one of their biggest fans and can’t wait to see what the future holds for these musical treasures.

The girl’s father, Luis, is an equally warm, sincere and humble man. Through Facebook and email, we became friends. They are truly a loving family with an incredible and rare bond. One day, we were discussing the costs of nurturing the girls’ musical talent. Luis admitted that paying for musical lessons for three girls is a challenge. From my experience it’s difficult enough for a family just trying to meet basic day-to-day needs, let alone trying to come up with the funds to purchase costly instruments and Lessons for 3 children.

Luis shared that the girls would love to attend a summer program at Berklee College of Music in Boston Massachusetts and how badly he wishes he could enroll them, but cannot due to the cost. Luis, is confident each of them can earn a scholarship once accepted; getting them there is the first hurdle.

Luis and the girls have become like family to me. I’m inspired by the girls’ passion for music and incredible determination to share their talent with the world and that’s why I have chosen to provide whatever support I can. I invite you to join me on this journey. The girls are so close to making it big, but they need help from people like us. On behalf of Luis, Monica, Paulina , Daniela and Alejandra, please try to provide a financial gift—big or small—every little bit helps and would be greatly appreciated. To all the corporations and businesses out there who believe in supporting amazing talent, these ladies need you. 

Update-the band is releasing some songs in March 2015 they’ve published themselves. Check out The Warning’s official website http://www.thewarningband.com and consider lending your support to help make the girls’ dreams come true.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE!
Luis, Monica, Dany, Paulina, Alejandra Villarreal (The Warning Band) as well as myself, Ted Boylan (promotions manager), wish to welcome an incredible contributor as well as solid supporter to the Warning Band Team! We are proud to announce that Nick Warring has joined the team!

Hello Warning Band fans! I'm writing to let everyone know that we have started another fundraising campaign for Dany, Pau, and Ale. Since their amazing Berklee trip they've had great opportunities to perform including The House of Blues, TEDx University, and at The South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin Texas where they gave two great performances! They have also been presented with recording opportunities, but those opportunities required the girls to give up their creative freedom. So, because they have such a strong sense of who they are and what they want their music to be they have decided to record independently. Those girls are such fantastic musicians and songwriters, but they also have such a work ethic and great character that they deserve a chance to record their original music the way it should be recorded, their way! I'll be helping the very busy Villarreal family with a new GoFundMe campaign here;

Please help if you can! They're working hard to make a great album!

Thank you for the introduction Ted. It's a pleasure and honor to be here among The Warning Band supporters and to be helping Dany, Pau, and Ale with their Berklee dream, and to be helping you with promotional writing and page updates. Like many of you I was introduced to the Warning quite by accident on YouTube. I was entertained by the great music but also fascinated by their expertise at such young ages. After watching all their videos (many times) and visiting the web page I was able to get to know Ted Boylan, The Warning's promotion manager, and even visit a little with the girl's father, Luis Villarreal. After learning more about the girls I was impressed with not only their incredible talent but their great work ethic as well. They work so hard, and they do so simply because they love music so much. The girls have terrific parents, Luis and Monica, that have raised such grounded, well mannered young ladies to be proud of. They have also sacrificed greatly to help the girls realize their musical dreams thus far, and I' hoping we can help get them a little farther. Ted has also done a fantastic job with getting The Warning's web page up and with getting the Berklee fund raising efforts started from his home in Canada. When the opportunity presented itself to help with the efforts by getting this U.S based campaign running I was more than happy to do so. Hopefully Ted and I, and all of you can make the dream of attending The Berklee College of Music a reality for Dany, Pau, and Ale. We have been warned! -Nick Warring, promotional writer.
