Concert at Maxwell’s for Hoboken Hurricane Relief Saturday November 17th 7pm
Here is a note from Stephen Bailey, organizer of The Hoboken Music Awards event….
The Producers of The Hoboken Music Awards Present The Hobey Fund and One Kick-Ass Benefit Concert!
In the aftermath of this horrific storm that has effected so many people, stories of musicians that have lost everything are beginning to surface. Saturday Nov. 17 was originally scheduled to be a night of awards and ceremony. However, we at The Hoboken Music Awards feel that, in this time of struggle for so many of our fellow musicians, we should put aside the handing out of awards and concentrate on helping those in need. So the night will now be a fundraiser benefiting local musicians.
We’ve created The Hobey Fund, named after our little statuette. Since the wrath of Sandy started coming to light, we were hearing more and more tales of musicians near and dear to the Hoboken scene who lost so much. Some who lost everything. We know that there are plenty of funds and charities to give to and helping any of them is a wonderful thing. We just felt that not enough attention has been given to musicians, studios, venues, etc who were devastated by this storm.
Therefore we’ve decided that this year’s Hoboken Music Awards night will be a fundraiser to benefit musicians hit hardest by the storm. While handing out awards is fun, we think this is a better way to celebrate local music at this time. We will be handing out awards at a later date. Those details will come soon. In the meantime please come out on Saturday November 17, 2012 to Maxwell’s and show your support.
