Only About ThE MUSIC - Artists for Autism
Only About the Music, Inc. (“OATM”) was created by music lovers to celebrate all musical genres. Strictly run by volunteers, we create a unique experience for the music lover – a chance to listen, meet and interact with artists in an intimate setting. We primarily support musicians that are independent, unsigned or not yet well known nationally, as they develop and grow a larger fan base. We remain loyal to these artists by attending local shows and purchasing their music and merchandise through legitimate channels that support their burgeoning careers.
OATM incorporated in 2013 and we are currently in the process of becoming a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. In addition to supporting the artists, OATM focuses on directly supporting organizations that align with our mission.
We believe that we have created a truly unique event, ‘Artists for Autism’, intended to raise funds through the sale of tickets, merchandise and private support. All net proceeds will go directly to the Grafton Integrated Health Network (“Grafton”), a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching and enhancing the lives of children with Autism and their families.
About the Event:
This exclusive event, Artists for Autism, is open to the public but will have a limited attendance. We have over 10 musicians scheduled to perform over two days. Each artist has generously agreed to perform for a reduced rate allowing us to maximize our donation to our non-profit partner.
This special event will showcase bands, singer/songwriters and solo acts from around the globe. Each artist will perform for approximately one hour, followed by a private “meet and greet” where every guest will be able to meet the artist, take a photo, receive personalized signatures and purchase their music or merchandise. The musicians will kindly give their time to chat with the guests and listen as the other performers share their artistry.
This will also be a chance to meet fellow music lovers from all over the world – share the experience, make new friends and enhance your life through music. Many of our private show guests have developed friendships through an appreciation of these artists and travelled thousands of miles to attend shows and lend support to one another. The artists are all excited to perform for this charitable event and are especially excited to meet their new fans.
Tickets are only available on our website and will be limited. Tickets will not be sold at the door! All ticket holders will have exclusive access to the show for both days. Delicious food and drink will be available at the venue for purchase.
Additionally, each artist is also donating special merchandise for a raffle and private auction. These items may include hand-written lyrics, personal items and autographed merchandise. One-of-a-kind “Artists for Autism” merchandise will also be included in the raffle. This raffle/auction will be open Saturday and Sunday with all winners announced on Sunday evening.
We can’t wait for you to experience this unique and intimate event with us.
