HAAM Benefit Day is a nationally recognized city-wide musical celebration that helps keep music in Austin alive and well. Businesses large and small take part on HAAM Benefit Day by agreeing to make a cash donation or donate 5% of the day’s proceeds to HAAM. Musicians, many of whom are HAAM members, will play throughout the city at supporting businesses as a celebration of musician’s health.
HAAM (the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians) has helped over 4,000 musicians access over 52,000 healthcare appointments valued at over $30 million dollars since 2005. These include routine dental work, doctor visits and prescriptions, psychiatric counseling sessions, eye exams, out-patient procedures, specialist referrals, hearing screenings and more.
Performances start bright and early, at 6am at Whole Foods Market’s downtown location. You can check out the lineup of over 150 acts, including Charlie Belle, Taylor Muse of Quiet Company, Colin Gilmore, Marcia Ball, Shawn Pander, Shinyribs, Troy Campbell, Gina Chavez, Hard Proof, William Harries Graham, ScottyRoo& Christini, Moving Panoramas and many more here.
