“The music community is actively raising money for the NEO Music Relief Fund to help local musicians and music venue workers who suddenly lost their livelihood because of the COVID-19 shutdown. We know what we need to do to stay home and stay healthy, but we’re committed to keeping our music community strong, too.

We know professional musicians and venue workers have few other options when the entertainment industry closes its doors – little or no access to unemployment, few other sources of income, and the prospect of this lasting for months to come. We are working to establish this fund to help the hardest hit in our community survive the current COVID-19 crisis period, and we’re committed to keeping the fund going, so we’re ready for future challenges.”
