BENEFITING: BE FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: May 30, 2015

THE STORY:

Band Together founders Jerry Vigorito and Rob Fried bring you a dance and funk show channeling the popular NY nightclub Studio 54 and the “scene” from the 1970’s and 80’s made popular by Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Donna Summer, The O’Jays, Jackson Five, The Ohio Players and more.

Proceeds from the event will go to BeFoundation’s SpreadMusicNow Fund, which supports individualized music education for underserved youth.

Through this event, SpreadMusicNow will provide all funds raised, with an additional matching grant, to a coalition of music education nonprofits including BackCountry Jazz, Charter Oak Cultural Center, Creative Connections, Hartford Performs, INTAKE Music, KEYS, Litchfield Jazz Camp, Little Kids Rock, Music Haven, Neighborhood Studios, PROJECT MUSIC, Westport Arts Center, and WPKN.

If you believe in the life-changing benefits of music education, then get friends, family and everyone you know to support our cause here and help SpreadMusicNow and Band Together transform children’s lives and build stronger, more vibrant communities.

We'll be fundraising until the end of this event on Saturday, May 30th.

Interested in attending the event? You can purchase tickets here.
