Due to the recent hurricane, we will need to cancel the Recording Academy Advocacy Town Hall in Miami on Sept. 14, but our progress toward District Advocate day on Oct. 18 will continue.

We extend our heartfelt best wishes to those affected by the recent hurricane, and want to remind you that MusiCares created a fund to support music people affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, and have expanded our resources to include victims of Hurricane Irma. MusiCares is offering assistance for a wide range of needs, including basic living expenses; medical expenses; clothing, instrument, and recording equipment replacement; relocation costs; home repairs; and more.

MusiCares' services are completely confidential, and people seeking assistance can contact the South Regional MusiCares office toll-free at 877.626.2748 or apply online MusiCares is privileged once again to provide critical support to our music family.
