Boom Boom Room Covid Rescue Fund

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

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.
