Boom Boom Room Covid Rescue Fund

“Blues Is The Healer.  It’ll Heal Me.  It’ll Heal You.” – John Lee Hooker


We're pleased to announce the charter members of the Johnny Lee Lucky Club.

Huge thanks to Aaron Eng, Emily Donavan, Richard Peterson, David Latch, BevMo/Casa Del Sol Strangels, James Newby, Benjamin Strebel, and Afshin Khosravi.

These all-star music fans donated $1000 or more to our gofundme campaign to save the club.

Each of these club saviors now has a plus one to all Boom Boom Room Presents shows in San Francisco though 2021!

You know some high rollers right?
Tell em about the Johnny Lee Lucky Club.

John Lee Hooker’s private booth at Boom Boom Room is perhaps the most historical, exclusive, and rare opportunity in seating accommodations of any live music nightclub in the world.

From the very first day that Boom Boom Room opened its doors in October, 1997, John Lee Hooker “held court” nightly in his plush red leather booth at the BBR with such luminaries as Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Roy Rogers, Van Morrison, Keith Richards, Robert Cray, Buddy Miles, Johnnie Johnson… and the list goes on, and on.

When you make a $5000 donation to our gofundme, you have a plus one for life at the Boom Boom Room. We’ll seat you in John Lee Hooker’s VIP booth when it’s available. 

Donate $10,000 to our survival and you’re on the list +1 for life, the first round of drinks is on us, and you get the chance to reserve the VIP booth in advance... just a few steps from The Fillmore.

If you’re the type of high roller that can afford to help us with $25,000, you’ve got priority choice of VIP booth seating for life and we immortalize your name in the VIP Booth where drinks are on us.

You become a part of the history of the club with a $50,000 donation. Your whole party is always on the guestlist, plus the booth is always yours when you’re at the club. A plaque immortalizes your contribution to keeping the music alive.

Dearest Friends and Boom Boom Room Extended Family, we are faced with permanent closure without emergency funding.

The survival of our intimate and iconic San Francisco live music institution depends on you.

Our rent is massive and compounding.

Our vendors are breathing down our necks.

Our repairs and utilities are unfunded.

Our staff is financially devastated and eager to return.

Our extensive family of local musicians are relying upon the day that the Boom Boom Room reemerges in support of their talents with live music shows to pay their rents, foster their art and creativity.

We have brought you a consistent platter of legends, old-school pioneers, new bands, and new music styles for the past 22 years. As you know, our mission has always been to turn people on to new perspectives and new music.

Boom Boom Room shows have successfully helped to break-out, introduce, debut, re-emerge, and elevate such bands and musicians as: Dragon Smoke, Orgone, Turkuaz, The Motet, Susan Tedeschi, Tab Benoit, Lotus, Trombone Shorty, Stanton Moore Trio, Worship My Organ, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Melvin Sparks, Robert Walter’s 20th Congress, and so many others.

We have so much more to give.

Please donate now and share this campaign today.

Our actual emergency need is approximately $150,000, but our hope is raising $50k with GoFundMe will get people discussing the urgency of our need to keep this institution alive.

Keep the Boom Boom Room alive with your donations.
