Tomorrow we’re beginning a national tour opening for Bonnie Raitt! We’re very excited to announce that at this weekend’s sold out concerts in Phoenix and Albuquerque, both Bonnie and the Honeydrops will donate net proceeds from merchandise sales to humanitarian relief efforts in Haiti and Cuba (later on in the tour, we will do this again to help support recovery efforts in the Southeast US). Information on the beneficiary organizations are below.
Even if you won’t be at the shows this weekend, YOU can join us in this effort and encourage other artists to do the same! Please SPREAD the word to your favorite artists and bands. If we come together, we can make a difference. Every little bit helps!
