Local Music is in Trouble

Musicians Need Your Help

Musicians are forced out of our community due to skyrocketing housing prices. Local music venues are disappearing and big business is killing the music business.

Music is a powerful force for good.

Music builds confidence.

Music is an incredibly powerful tool that helps people build confidence in a variety of ways. Whether you're a musician yourself or simply enjoy listening to music, the benefits of music can be felt by people of all ages and backgrounds.

Music brings us together.

Music is the universal language of mankind. Music has the power to break down barriers and enable people to communicate meaningfully in a way that evokes emotion and solidarity.

Music for better health.

Research shows that music reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety by providing a positive distraction from negative thoughts and emotions.

Mid-size venues are crucial to success
