This fall, Band Together NC’s Mighty Giveback benefit concert will take the stage for a powerful night of country and rock ‘n’ roll performances, with the purpose of connecting and giving back to our community through live music.

Four-time Grammy Award-winning artist Jason Isbell and his band the 400 Unit will headline the Oct. 7 fundraising event, with a goal to reach $1 million for this year’s nonprofit partner United Way of the Greater Triangle.

Since 2001, the program has donated over $11 million to more than 20 nonprofit organizations in the area and is the largest fundraising concert in the Southeast.

“Band Together NC is thrilled to present our annual benefit concert with our valued partner to help strengthen local nonprofits and once again dedicate the year to supporting housing accessibility,” said Executive Director Thorne Daubenspeck. “It’s going to be a great night for our community.”

During the live event at Red Hat Amphitheater, concert-goers can sing and dance along to hits like “Cover Me Up,” enjoy special guest performances, and listen to stories from 20 impactful Triangle nonprofit organizations.

So, who’s ready to party with a purpose? VIP tickets are sold out, but folks can purchase individual tickets starting at $36, donate to the cause, or become a sponsor to help fast-track the $1 million goal.
