This past Saturday a group of Malibu’s finest young musicians came together Saturday at the Malibu Lumber Yard for a fundraiser concert called "From Our Ocean to Theirs."

The Malibu Lumber Yard shops Tory BurchAlice + Olivia,ChocolateBox CafeIntermixKitson KidsLa Perla and Maxfield donated a portion of the day’s sales to the Japan earthquake and tsunami relief effort by Real Medicine Foundation.

The youngest performer was 10-year-old Benjamin Krasner, and was accompanied by Maggie Valdman as the Malibu saxophonist Kenny G flipped the music pages.

The rest of the days performances included a variety of bands such as First Impressions, Bromley, Static Euphony, Aestus, the Malibu High teacher/student band, Max G, Jordan Seah, the James Burnett Band Ren Martinez and Sophie Galate.
