Bands4Good Music Festival and Live Concert Event

Bands4Good collage2RALEIGH, N.C. – The Doing Good Network’s Bands4Good Challenge has announced the performance roster for its main event this weekend, as the competition enters the final stretch to the finish line. The top seven finalists, along with six selected non-finalists, will perform in the Bands4Good Music Festival and Live Concert Event this Sunday, December 8, at The Lincoln Theatre in downtown Raleigh from 2:00-5:00p.m. These cause-inspired musicians from around the nation are competing with original song videos to raise support for selected veteran and military related nonprofit organizations in North Carolina. These nonprofit organizations include: U.S. Veterans Corps, Military and Veterans Resource Coalition, Rolling Thunder of NC, Veterans of Foreign Wars (Dept. of NC), Veterans Leadership Council Cares, Wags4Tags, and the Military Family Lifestyle Charitable Foundation.

Nationally acclaimed music producer and recording engineer John Davenport serves as Co-Founder and Head Judge for the contest. “I am thrilled to launch this contest in my home state,” said Davenport. “North Carolina radiates with generosity and talent, and this is a wonderful way to use the power of music to get help to those in need, right here in our own backyard.”

Anyone can view the song videos and vote with donations towards the cause at www.bands4good.com. Voting runs through December 15. In addition to raising support for North Carolina’s veterans and military personnel, the contestants have a tremendous opportunity to win some incredible prizes and career exposure. All funds raised through votes will be collected and distributed among the nonprofit partners by the Doing Good Community Foundation.
