Los Angeles, CA (June 30, 2017)–Sweet Relief Musicians Fund’s President Bill Bennett and EVP of Artist Relations Aric Steinberg, recently met up with The Moody Blues at the band’s Chateau Ste. Michelle show in Seattle, Washington on June 10 during their “Days of Future Passed – 50th Anniversary Tour.”
In an effort to address a critical charitable need, The Moody Blues have been donating $1 per-ticket sold at each show to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization which provides financial assistance to career musicians, venue workers, production staff, crew members and their families suffering from injury, illness or disability. Funds raised from the tour will pay for medical procedures, doctor visits, prescriptions, and vital living expenses.
Says Steinberg, “We were honored to be able to thank the band in person. They are such a great group of guys, and we are so grateful for their generosity.
Adds Bennett, “Sweet Relief is enormously grateful to the Moody Blues for this incredibly generous donation, and the funds raised will help hundreds of desperate musicians and music industry workers in critical need.”
