Upcoming episodes include in-restaurant performances and exclusive interviews with some of the hottest bands and artists on U.S. summer tours, including: 3 Doors Down, Josh Kelley, Gavin DeGraw, Vanessa Carlton, The Bravery, Ben Folds, Jason Mraz and Matisyahu.
Beginning in September, XM Radio will broadcast each episode of Bonefish Grill's NOTES FROM THE ROAD on a variety of its music channels, including Flight 26 (XM 26), Ethel (XM 47) and Starbucks XM Café (XM 45).
Each Bonefish Grill's NOTES FROM THE ROAD episode will include a segment highlighting Ocean Trust, an award-winning ocean conservation foundation that builds science, conservation and industry partnerships for the sustainability of the oceans and provides a link to sustainable fisheries, wildlife and the environment.
"Music has always been an essential part of the atmosphere at our restaurants," said John Cooper, Bonefish Grill President. "So it was natural for us to host this concert series. But the real thrill is bringing our love of music and great food together with our commitment to Ocean Trust. It is gratifying to put our passions to work for such a worthy cause."
Separately, Bonefish Grill will also contribute $1 for each Ocean Trust Martini sold at its restaurants and is expecting to raise awareness and $250,000.00 for this worthy organization.
