Hurricane Relief

Please join the artists of The Rock Boat Washed Ashore Tour, Earthlink Live,and Second Harvest of Atlanta in supporting the hurricane victims, evacuees,and residents of Georgia and Florida. On September 25th in Atlanta, artists such as Sister Hazel, the Pat McGee Band, Virginia Coalition, Matt Wertz,Michael Tolcher, Marc Broussard, Blue Merle and many other amazing artists will come together to 'save a life'. Second Harvest needs your help by bringing non-perishable food items and cases of bottled water to the event.

There will be bins and volunteers at the doors to collect your donation! The items will be distributed to communities in the Southeast. For your kind donation and generosity, some of the artists have donated a set amount of limited edition merchandise to be given to contributors as a way to say thank you for your support.

We hope that everyone attending the show will embrace this opportunity to help a region that has been ripped apart by thesedisasters in the past month. Together, we can bring an end to hunger through music! If you'd like further information, please feel free to contact or
