Chico, Calif -- A Chico band is performing at the Children's Success Foundation Conference in Arizona next week.

"Clean Ocean," a band comprised of Chico natives Isaiah Kraatz, Webster Moore, Justin Thomson, Jonathan Thomson and Marcus Rutledge are former and current students of Inspire School of Arts and Sciences in Chico.

The five have played together for about one year across the North State. They are headed to Tucson, Arizona on January 23 to play at the 2015 Nurtured Heart Approach Global Summit. There, they will play 40 songs in front of nearly 200 teachers.

"Our whole band's really excited, we've been practicing a really long time for this gig," drummer Isaiah Kraatz said. "We have our songs down and we all hope to do very well."

The nurtured heart approach aims to help parents and teachers work with kids who struggle.

"The goal is to be able to educate as many teachers and parents as possible, so we can spread knowledge of the nurtured heart approach to improve schools in general and parenting," Clean Ocean vocalist Webster Moore said.

They have raised over 60 percent of their fundraising goal of $6,100. If you would like to help fund their trip to Arizona, you can donate until January 23 here.

"Clean Ocean" previously played with the Children's Success Foundation in Sacramento.
