Austin Live Music, an online interactive concert streaming live on Facebook (, Monday, May 18 from 6:30-9:30 pm -- to raise money for 40+ Austin career musicians who have not received income since March 14.

Featuring Matchmaker Band, and PDA Band, with special guest artists, Rose Short and Ricky Duran, featured artists on "The Voice."

The event's goal is to raise funds to support these Austin career musicians and their families. 100 percent of all funds collected will be divided into grants for each musician, to help them to pay rent, purchase groceries, and cover other critical expenses.

The live music industry is built on large numbers of people getting together to be entertained and have fun. These musicians were the first to be out of work due to the pandemic crisis and will be the last to go back. Their three primary revenue-generating months of the year were canceled. Working musicians in Austin generally make around $50-$60,000/annually, and, unfortunately, they don't qualify for unemployment or SBA grants due to their status.

These singers, players, sound engineers, light techs, and stagehands produce and perform at hundreds of corporate, government, weddings, and personal events at venues all over Austin. These men and women also perform almost every weekend on the stages of Austin churches.

Live music is the heartbeat of Austin!  It is the air we breathe.  It is time we give back to this community of artists who give everything they have to keep us singing.

Thank you so much.
