It took a week for Danny Rosin (BT Board President), Mike McKee (Delta Rae Drummer) and Matt Strickland (Exec Director BT) to thaw out from jumping in the pool.

Every month, Band Together does hands on service projects with its nonprofit partners in the community. Yeah, we like writing big checks and rocking out to live music, but it is the hands-on work we involve ourselves in that reminds us WHY we do what we do.

Bring it on because it is not only your way into the party, but it is the way you can meet new friends and win stuff. Band Together After Work Socials. They are not just about sitting at a bar all lonely like.
We're proud of the work we did at Band Together's After Work Social #12 at Tir Na Nog! We filled bags of cold weather wellness items to assist Alliance Medical Ministry. Bonus: North Carolina State University beat West Virginia in the Champs Sports Bowl. [Photos compliments of Rich Cox Photography]

In the Fall of 2005, Band Together produced a 14-band extravaganza to support victims of Hurricane Katrina and raised almost $45,000 and brought the community together. Dollars raised went to locally to the NC Food Bank, where food was delivered to Gulf Coast areas.
In 2005, Band Together partnered with The Music Maker Relief Foundation, some of its blues artists and The Derek Trucks Band to keep our culture vital by directly supporting senior (over 55) American roots musicians in need.
With our event, we were able to provide for basic life essentials while expanding their professional careers so that our rich musical heritage can be shared with the world and preserved for future generations.
On September 12th, 2001 five friends, Phil and Shellie Gruber, Danny Rosin, Tom Lyon, and Skip Mangum met to discuss what instrumental role they could play in responding to the terrors of 9/11. None were firemen. Because they lived in Raleigh, NC, far from where the horrific tragedies occurred, onsite assistance would be an impasse. There were no existing, trusted charitable outlets. Despite these obstacles, they had a deep sense that they could do, and had to do, something. They knew they were not alone.
Over the next several weeks, they brought together a group of more than 40 young business leaders from across the Triangle to raise awareness and money for the victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks. They created an organization called Band Together for Our Heroes. They produced a 4-band event that brought over 1000 people together, raising over $60,000 for NYC and DC Family Relief efforts.
Sometimes good things come from tragedy because since then, Band Together has formed a 501c3 non-profit run 100% by volunteer efforts.
100% of net proceeds go directly to the charities we serve. We are proud to call the Triangle area home, love our local music scene and have the privilege of serving an incredible community. Please join us.
Special thanks to Richard Cox for his great photography work for Band Together.
