Joe Bonamassa Sets up Fund for Touring Musicians
Joe Bonamassa is helping touring musicians by setting up a fund to help out those who aren't able to make money during this pandemic.
Fueling Musicians Program is an emergency relief plan for touring musicians affected by the COVID-19 crisis. It provides financial assistance for essential living expenses such as food, shelter, and more.
Fueling Musicians provides immediate cash payments of $1,000, as well as pre-paid gas cards of $500 to help struggling musicians get back on the road again when it is safe. If you've ever spoken to a touring musician you know how much $500 in gas can help. When you've purchased a tshirt or CD at the merch table, that's gone almost directly into the gas tank.

He just mentioned on his Facebook page that in two weeks they have raised over 139,000 dollars. The plan is to reach 250k. He says he raided his Mom and Dad’s stash of vintage promo pictures and has a few of each. He's gonna sign them and put them up on KTBA.org. All money goes to help musicians get back on the road.
