EAGLE POINT, Ore. –Preston Montgomery and his friends started a band two years ago called Southwest Royal.
He endured a long road to get to where he is now.
“I lived in 7 different states and my parents both work from home,” Preston Montgomery said.
Preston attended Crater High School.
“I got kicked out, started couch hopping, and that was my senior year of High School when I really needed to focus, “Preston Montgomery said.
The Maslow project was there for him when he was in need.
“I would walk into the door and they have the resources that you would need to get back on your feet,” Preston Montgomery said.
Now on Valentine’s Day, Preston and a couple of other bands are having a canned food drive and show at the Bamboo Room.
“We are raising money for the Maslow Project. I know that every member of my band was homeless and one point and the Maslow Project has helped us,” Preston Montgomery said
Now he and his band are making music and playing for those in need because he was once there too.
