Long live The Saint

The Saint has been a fixture in the music community and a New Jersey live music destination since it was founded in 1994.  The Saint can be added to the list of venues which are hanging on, a venue struggling to swing costs and other variables associated with 11 months into a global pandemic.

Since it could take many weeks, even months for the the NIVA Emergency Relief funding to flow, we continue to raise money to assist the Saint, at great risk of permanently going under, as we wait for grants to be issued.  Anyone wishing to donate can do so below. 

Home of live original music since 1994, there aren't many venues in the world like The Saint.  The music community has been a savior to The Saint and has had their back since the beginning of the pandemic and over the decades.  Early on support provided a breath of life for this beloved Jersey music venue.

All donations will help The Saint buy precious time during the shut-down while strategizing, waiting for and applying for grants and waiting patiently for the pandemic to fade so that the world can get on with it and The Saint and all venues and theaters can open safely at capacity and resume originally scheduled live show experiences.

The Saint will use donations to dig out of the debt caused by the pandemic. Like the Gofundme 11 months ago, it will help The Saint get out of the debt caused by the pandemic and help the venue weather the remainder of the storm, so that The Saint can remain “Home of Live Original Music”.

Approximately eleven months ago, hundreds came together to help The Saint. We raised 45k.  It was not money given by a billionaire, but by hundreds of friends, fans and family, -- people who gave a dollar here and there, and what they could.  The campaign underlined the powerful and unifying force of the live music experience and community. 

The Saint is hopeful for a brighter 2021 and looks forward to rocking at normal operating capacity, safely sharing a great passion and love of live original music and the live show experience with you.

Long live our local, national, and international touring and studio artists.  

Long live The Saint.
