Band(ing) Together

Our Texas bands need help! So far this spring, thirty nine local and regional artists booked by GCE have been affected by the more than fifty contract cancelations and late postponements due to Covid-19, representing more than $150,000 in lost or deferred revenue for our artists.

Gulf Coast Entertainment  is working with its clients to help them reschedule as many of their events as possible, and we are also working to help get our artists the immediate financial assistance they need. Please join us in Band(ing) Together and donate to our GoFundMe as a partial relief for the bands and musicians below who have lost jobs and income as a result of Covid-19. These bands and artists have provided the soundtrack to all our most cherished events and memories—now it’s our time to help.
