Rhythm & Rye Relief Fund

Hi there friends and FamOly, Many of you that know me know that I have a hard time asking for help.  Unfortunately I am being put in a position that now I need to ask for that help.  As many of you know the state of emergency in our state has closed all restaurants and bars and entertainment facilities.  That means we are all out of work.  Service staff, musicians, theater workers, artists, the whole lot of us.  There currently is no way for any of us to make an income to pay our rent let alone groceries and many of us have mouths to feed and families to support.  I'm starting this account in response to many that have pledged they really want to support us in these trying times.  This campaign is to help us fund the very essentials for the club to remain and be able to continue to write paychecks for our staff.  Our industry also relies heavily on tips from our good people so if we reach our goal and go over I will happily distribute extra to our staff as a "tip" from donors.  We are taking steps to also try and support our musicians who have also lost all income by setting up a live streaming platform for you all to tune in and support your favorite musicians.  Still on our stage but you get to enjoy from your couch.  The amount of support and people reaching out has be overwhelming and an amazing reminder of just how supportive our community really is.  I put this number together as a rough estimate of what we could really use to get by and be able to reopen given a 2 month time frame.  We love our community and would hate for all of this to tank us.  Any donation is greatly appreciated from our families to yours, we love you all.  We will get through this TOGETHER!   SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL LIVE MUSIC SCENE!  From all of us down here at Rhythm & Rye...THANK YOU FOR BELIEVING IN US! #smallbusinessrelief
