About #BackingBands

#BackingBands is about unifying musicians, industry pros, and fans through good will and encouraging one another to engage in philanthropic efforts within the music community. We are here to:

  •  Promote philanthropic efforts for and by  musicians and the music industry.

  •  Promote independent artists and venues

  •  Share resources helpful to industry pros

  •  Support peer to peer giving and  assistance

It is about having one another's back so that music communities and independent music can do more than survive, but thrive.

Are you "backing bands" somehow? Are you a band or artist doing something to help the behind the scenes industry pros, techs, roadies, or peers? Let us know about it. Challenge your peers to follow your lead and pay it forward.



  • Share what your non-profit or grass roots effort is doing

  • Host a live stream to benefit a peer

  • Offer a percentage of sales for your business or band toward a peer in need or another organization

  • Offer a download/single to benefit a local peer or cause

  • Offer matching contributions to an effort

  • Offer a service as an incentive to give
