About this Event

A MESSAGE FROM THE VENUE

Salutations Music Lovers!

Tuesday December 1, 2020 is a VERY important day for The Venue. Tuesday, December 1st is GIVING TUESDAY, an annual day of giving to assist not for profit organizations in raising much needed funds for ongoing programs and operating costs. This year it is more important than ever to keep the music going. In the immortal words of the Beatles, “We get by with a little help from our friends.”

Before the COVID pandemic, The Venue was well on its way to becoming a community “clubhouse” of sorts built and run by volunteers, where visitors and musicians from all over found a welcoming, comfortable live entertainment experience. We have struggled since last March to bring patrons high quality livestream programming they could enjoy from their own homes while sheltering in place. We developed and provided several months of outdoor concerts where people could gather safely. Now, with the return of the cold weather, like so many other arts organizations, we are struggling for our very existence. Studies show that 90% of independent venues in the world will close their doors forever in the coming year. Every single donation helps us to remain viable and keep the music going.

We know this is a big ask. Times are tough. Please consider becoming our partner on Giving Tuesday! Your donation in any amount will assist with general operating costs to expand our livestream programming. We hope that you will join us for a holiday livestream concert or an event at The Venue sometime in the future. You can find concert links on our website: TheMusicVenue.org.

Thank you for giving what you can, and for giving where you live - in the Fox Valley!

ABOUT THE SHOW

Join us for a special Giving Tuesday Livestream, Tuesday, December 1 at 7pm. Giving Tuesday is a world wide day of giving benefiting non profit organizations. Now more than ever, The Venue needs your help to continue our mission and bring live music to the Fox Valley. Our Annual Giving Tuesday Fundraiser will culminate with a special livestream edition of our Album Cover Tribute Series. Funds raised from Giving Tuesday and The Doors: Strange Days livestream concert will help to sustain The Venue during our temporary closure due to COVID and allow us to reopen when it is safe to do so.
