the project

This is a fundraiser for musicians that can not do a solo show.

We created this EXCITING fundraiser for a multicultural free admission DRIVE IN CONCERT with two AWESOME full bands featuring MOISES BORGES BRAZILIAN JAZZ and MO' MOJO BAND, with the audience in their cars, so we keep social distancing and abide by the COVID-19 government recommendations. Two multinational full bands will play from a stage area for one hour and a half each. 

The goal of this project is to financially support the side musician, like a drummer, a bass player, etc, the ones that can not do a live show by themselves. Main act musicians might have a easier time getting by during the Covid-19 time by playing a solo show, although a side man will have a harder time surviving or playing alone, that's why I want to hire full bands, so the side man can work and get paid.

MOISES BORGES will present an up tempo set of music with 3 horns, percussion, drums, bass, guitar and vocals on Brazilian Jazz, samba and other Rhythms.

MO' MOJO is a hard driving, high energy, “Pardi-Gras” Band. The female-fronted group features rich harmonies, button box, twin guitars, rubboard, sax, trumpet, harp, bass, percussion, and drums. Songs are sung in English and French.  Mo' Mojo takes Zydeco music and infuses it with Blues, Americana, Cajun, reggae, rock & roll, funk, R&B

We want to bring Clevelanders together in a self contained environment during this time of social distancing and quarantine, and we want to build financial support to Cleveland musicians during the impacts of COVID-19. 

Right now DONATIONS ARE BEING DOUBLED through the ioby Cuyahoga Arts & Culture Match Fund, so give TODAY to support our Cleveland Music Concert and musicians, as we don't have much time to reach our goal.

the steps

We're collaborating with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Cleveland in Shaker Hts to host this event on their nice and wide rear parking lot, located at

21600 Shaker Blvd Shaker Hts 44122.

We are aiming to have this happening on Saturday August 8th at 4pm, with an option for a raining day on the day after, Sunday August 9th.

To make this happen we will also be contacting the City Hall and the police to get permissions, rent two Porta-Johns and hand washing station, recruit collaborators and volunteers, pay building custodial fees, hire a sound system company to run the sound, set up a covered band's stand, then after the event we will break everything down and clean up.

This free public event is only possible through community donations like yours! We appreciate your support.

why we're doing it

We want to support the side musicians that are having a hard time getting a paid gig.

By supporting a full band ensemble we can get side musician a opportunity to play along, the ones that can not do a live show by themselves.

Main act musicians might have a easier time getting by during the Covid-19 time, although a side man will have a harder time surviving or playing alone, that's why I want to hire full bands, so the side man can work and get paid.

By doing that we will bring Clevelanders together during this time of social distancing, and we want to build financial support to Cleveland musicians during the impacts of COVID-19.
Please help to support the Cleveland Musicians and make a donation that means for you the help they will get.

Donate now to double your donation or donate cash at the door.
