Live music all around Austin supporting local musicians on HAAM Day

September 13 is HAAM Day! It's the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians' annual citywide celebration supporting local musicians through live music.

HAAM provides a lifeline to Austin musicians, and since 2005, has helped nearly 6,000 musicians access more than $123 million in healthcare services, ranging from primary and specialty care, dental, vision, hearing, mental health, basic needs, and other services.

Funds raised on HAAM Day will provide these direct services to musicians, which means every dollar donated will be used to help artists continue to create the music we all love to enjoy. Every dollar donated to HAAM is leveraged into $7 of direct services to musicians. This means a $100 donation provides $700 dollars of healthcare services.

Central Texans will have access to hundreds of performances from local musicians at venues throughout the greater Austin area, including music in San Marcos, Pflugerville, and Bastrop.

Notable showcases:

  • Bruce Robison - Live from Waterloo Records & Video starting at 5 p.m.
  • The Next Generation showcase at ABGB from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
