The Beat Goes On - A Documentary

Please join us for BEATLORIC! 
A virtual benefit concert for the documentary The Beat Goes On.

A donation of $5 or more is all it takes to watch this incredible concert on December 3rd at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.
You will be emailed a link to the concert by 3pm ET December 3rd.

Performances will include:

  -Pink Martini’s Thomas Lauderdale and China Forbes
  -The Phil Baker Quintet
  -Tony Ozier and The Doo Doo Funk All Stars
  -And a special performance by percussionist Miguel Bernal

Derek Rieth was a percussionist with Pink Martini for 18 years. 
He lived his life through music. It wasn’t enough just to learn about it.
What made him whole was the process of sharing it with other people.

Tragically, in 2014, Derek lost a battle with mental illness and died by suicide.

Your support will honor Derek's memory and advocate for those suffering from mental illness. 

The first 6 people  who make a donation of $500 or more will be offered Associate Producer credit on the film.
