Having spent the last 15+ years in Memphis, I’ve been hearing Bobby Bare Jr.‘s name for as long as I’ve been haunting either iteration of the Hi-Tone. He’s one of those songwriters that other songwriters talk about, and an all-around entertaining musician that fans are always quick to mention. Whether band-leading, striking out solo, or lending support to other artists, he’s a rare mix of one-of-a-kind talent and widely-appealing persona. So it is an incredible pleasure that Bobby will be joining us for a very special show this spring.
As if getting to hear Bobby Bare Jr. up close and personal weren’t enough of a reason to wander over on a Friday night, the generous Mr. Bare is donating his time on behalf of Manos de Madres, an international non-profit that helps women out of poverty through the principles of entrepreneurship, cooperation, creativity, and sustainability. Which, if you think about it, are also the principles of making a living as a musician.
I WANT TO SEE BOBBY! I WANT TO SUPPORT MANOS DE MADRES! HOW DO I DO BOTH?
UPDATE: WE’RE SOLD OUT. This is a privately hosted event and we are now at capacity. If you’d like to join the waiting list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an invitation. Only confirmed guests will be sent the address.
The suggested (minimum!) donation for this event is $30, or $50 per couple, all of which will go directly to Manos de Madres. It’s a party, so delicious food, adult beverages, and copacetic company will be provided to our guests. Goods produced by Manos de Madres will also be available to purchase. To make a donation in advance (or just because you feel like it), click here.
*Please keep in mind that if you donate in advance or at the event, your donation is non-refundable. It is not a ticket. It is a freewill offering and not a direct exchange for goods or services. All event donations go directly to Manos de Madres immediately after the show, whether you’re there or not.
