True Team Effort Makes Every Cent Count At Dave Matthews Band "A Concert For Hurricane Relief" At Red Rocks Amphitheatre!

Bookmark and Share

In an unprecedented show of unity and support for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, nearly every single dollar raised at Monday night's Dave Matthews Band benefit concert at Denver's Red Rocks Amphitheatre will go to aid those affected by the hurricane.

"We are thrilled to announce that over $ 1.5 million dollars will be donated to the Bama Works Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund," said Chuck Morris, President of Chuck Morris Presents. "The fund will be used to provide short term disaster relief to the affected Gulf Coast population, and long term assistance for rebuilding of communities."

"We are deeply grateful to The Neville Brothers, John Butler Trio and to everyone who supported this effort," said Dave Matthews Band. "We want to especially thank our fans for responding so generously to assist those affected by the hurricane."

Everyone involved in the concert including the band and their crew, the promoter, the City and County of Denver, all of the vendors, truck drivers, stage hands, security personnel, ushers, parking attendants, maintenance services, local police and fire, and many others donated their time to Monday night's concert, cutting the overall expenses of the show to a bare minimum. As a result, the benefit raised over $ 1.5 million dollars for hurricane relief. 

"It was a challenge to pull this together in a week, but Coloradans are the greatest and most generous people in the world," said Mayor John Hickenlooper. "This was a truly unbelievable concert highlighting the power of music to bring people together to help others. We are especially grateful to Dave Matthews Band and the Neville Brothers for helping Denver contribute to the hurricane relief efforts in such a meaningful way."

In addition to personnel working at the concert, local businesses turned out in full force in support of the event, purchasing all of the $500 and $1,000 level tickets. Some of those organizations include First Data, Gates Corporation, Kroenke Sports Enterpirses, Newmont Corporation and

Vail Resorts. Aspen Ski Company donated $125,000 worth of lift tickets as an added value to the Premium tickets. EA Sports also donated to the cause.

Conscious Alliance collected 30,000 pounds of food over the four day event.
