About the Hope Concert (from the show program)

The Hope Concert is a community benefit concert produced by the Count Basie Theater and starring an exceptional lineup of Jersey Shore musicians. All the musicians are volunteering their time tonight. The theater is donating the venue, and only the direct out of pocket costs are reimbursed so as close as 100% of the proceeds as possible may benefit the charity.

From fundraisers in local bars to large concerts in big venues, the Jersey Shore music community has had a long tradition of helping friends and neighbors in need, and the spirit of the hope Concert is best summarized by Music Director Bob Bandiera: "I like the idea of giving back when I can, and I like being able to help a friend when needed. But mostly I like having the chance to apply my craft to supporting a cause... However sick or tired or miserable I may be at the end of a day, I always try to remember that somewhere, someone has it worse than I do, and it only takes a little bit of time and effort on my part to give back."
