Because without these guys, we wouldn't have such an amazing Kiwi Music Industry.
Shows are being cancelled, venues are threatened; production suppliers, roadies and crew are without work. With almost no notice, these hard-working, ordinary New Zealanders and their dependents are facing levels of distress and hardship never seen before.
You might recognise MusicHelpsLive, as the people who put on the Band Together concert after the Christchurch earthquakes and You Are Us/Aroha Nui concerts following the Christchurch terror attacks.
But now they need your help.
For 8 years MusicHelps has been the music industry’s charity, providing emergency financial support and professional counselling to kiwi music people when crisis strikes.
With the onslaught of COVID-19, MusicHelps faces unprecedented demand for its vital services.
So what can you do to help?
Donate here. This helps the organisation provide counselling to those who need it.
#KeepYourTicket. Keeping your ticket for a gig that has been postponed, instead of seeking a refund is a small way to show your support for your favourite artists.
Keep streaming and buying kiwi music and merchandise.
Spread the word! Share your favourite Kiwi music with friends, make people aware of I Lost My Gig NZ, or message musicians your support.
