Johnny Brenda's Employee Relief Fund

In response to the national emergency presented by the spread of COVID-19, and in an effort to keep our staff, artists, and community safe, the bar, restaurant, and venue at Johnny Brenda's have closed for the foreseeable future. (We are still offering take-out food & beer 12-8 every day!)


We're deeply proud of the work we do to deliver some of the best shows, food, drinks and hangs in Philadelphia. The incredible team of people who make this happen are now facing a precarious and challenging time. We're always so grateful to be part of a community that supports and cares for one another, and this moment is no different. We are asking for your generosity in response to this unprecedented situation. Please support our hardworking staff with whatever donations you can spare.


We're offering up some exclusive rewards for your donations including show tickets, JB's merch, dinner for two, and much more. 100% of the net earnings from this campaign will be dispersed evenly to all affected Johnny Brenda's hourly employees and production staff. The fundraiser is being organized by JB’s employees.


See below for a full list of rewards. Please specify if you would like your donation to apply to a particular reward.  Make sure to check back as we’ll be adding new rewards throughout the campaign. Thank you for your support!
