Backing Memphis Bands and Industry Pros
Updated: Jan 19
At the onset of covid in spring 2020, we joined forces with local musicians and fans in Detroit and were able to raise and distribute $20,000 with grass roots, word of mouth efforts through our local music promo group, Playing in the Detroit Area Tonight, on Facebook during spring and over the holidays. Inspired by the generosity and willingness of so many, we are paying it forward to our friends in Memphis on behalf of Detroit, Passenger Recovery (the local Non-Profit that facilitated our fund raising and even matched donations in December) and Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils.
We will be forwarding funds to South Main Sounds, a Memphis based Non-Profit, for donation matching and distributing to industry pros there who have been impacted by covid closures and cancelled tours. More details to come.
We are extending the invite to other musicians to join the party and pay it forward to your peers that could use some help. Host a live stream to benefit a peer or non profit, donate a portion of streaming/download revenue, volunteer your time. We have the support of GHS Strings behind us to inspire others to do the same. Spread some kindness. #BackingBands #SaveOurSongs #PayItForward #SupportOurCrews #GHSStrings
