For this specific event, all proceeds are going towards University of Maryland's “Terp DREAM Scholarship” for first-generation undergraduate students — we are trying to help it reach endowed status, an important goal with the school facing loss of sanctuary status under the Trump administration. There will be a $25 required donation at the door, 100 percent of it going to the scholarship!
What is Amplify? It's the beginning of a socio-political movement among musicians, the purpose of which is to unite like-minded players in using their talents to support groups of people who need help in the wake of the current administration.
An Amplify event is conceptually simple: choose a cause, put together a show, and give 100 percent of proceeds to that cause. This is different than a benefit concert; the idea isn't to do a one-time show and call it a day. We would like communities elsewhere to create their own Amplify events! It's not ONLY a benefit, but a PLATFORM for musicians to let their voices resonate.
