Giveback to Live Music: Support for Northern Colorado Audio Engineers & Lighting Designers

Northern Colorado is home to one of the nation’s most vibrant live music scenes. With a number of Colorado’s premier venues and countless live music events each year, Fort Collins and the surrounding areas have become a hub for musicians, industry professionals, and fans alike. 

This scene wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of the audio engineers and lighting designers who work tirelessly to deliver a captivating live music experience night in and night out. 

As you know the spread of COVID-19 has forced the closure of all venues, restaurants, and bars for the coming months. In addition it has greatly impacted the future of touring schedules leaving these contracted gig-to-gig employees out of work for an undetermined amount of time. 

The Mishawaka Amphitheatre, The Aggie Theatre, and Hodi's Half Note are asking for your help to ensure our engineers and designers have the ability to cover their basic needs for the next few months. 

All donations will be divided evenly and distributed to a comprehensive list of audio engineers and lighting designers who are residents of Northern Colorado or are contracted/employed through The Mishawaka, Aggie Theatre, and Hodi's Half Note.  As the production manager of The Mishawaka, I’ll personally see that the funds are distributed appropriately.  

Any donation helps and we look forward to sharing music with you all soon.
