Big Love Benefit Concerts
Lauren writes: With the blow that COVID-19 took on the live music industry, Rick and I realized there’s such a need for support in the music community especially around production workers and stagehands – we had to do something! We partnered with Sound Image Studios and Sweet Relief Musicians Fund to set up a virtual concert benefiting those whose jobs have been affected. Without our music venues and these wonderful people, we wouldn’t have the music experience that we need and brings us all together. This event is for them!
