World famous menswear designer and visioneer John Varvatos, invited Willie Nelson and his sons to be a part of this year’s annual Stuart House event. The benefit is organized to raise money for the Stuart House, a program created by the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center that serves the special needs of sexually abused children.
This years event will happen April 13th and is known to attract many well known stars and performers who support the program.
This is not the first time that Nelson and sons have partnered with Varvatos. The trio suited up for the Fall/Winter 2013 campaign last year.

Lukas Nelson, son of Willie Nelson, heads the band on guitars and vocals. Nelson and the band previously performed at the Center for the Arts before his father’s concert here in 2012.
The band’s name represents a pledge made by the group to always “be real” to who they are both musically and individually and for better or worse. They play rock ‘n’ roll with a blues base, intertwined with influences such as country, soul, folk and reggae. They are based out of Paia, Hawaii, and Southern California.
In 2009, the group released its first studio recording, the “Brando’s Paradise” EP, featuring “My Own Wave.”
In 2010, P.O.T.R. released its first LP, “Promise of the Real,” recorded at John Avila’s (Oingo Boingo) home studio.
In 2012, they released their second album, “Wasted.” Nelson started writing the personal country-rock record while on the Country Throwdown tour.
Lukas Nelson and P.O.T.R. are currently writing and recording new music for their next not-yet-titled album and third full-length release for the gritty rock group. Nelson is joined by Tato Melgar on percussion and sound effects, Anthony LoGerfo on drums and Corey McCormick on bass and vocals.
