San Francisco (August 3, 2004)–On Sunday, Sept. 12, Dave Matthews Band will perform a free concert in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Benefiting causes including Bay Area parks, music education and AIDS research, donations raised in connection with the concert will be distributed through the band’s Bama Works Foundation. The band’s longtime live sound provider is Ultra Sound / Pro Media in nearby Hercules, CA.
“We are so excited to finish our summer tour in San Francisco,” said Dave Matthews Band. “The Bay Area has always been one of our favorite places to play, so to come here and perform in such a special location and raise money for local charities at the same time is especially rewarding.”
Dave Matthews Band has sold more than 33 million albums worldwide and earns a spot on each year’s list of top concert draws. Bama Works Foundation, established by the band in 1999, has donated millions of dollars in grants to a variety of organizations in Charlottesville, Va., and around the world. Beneficiaries have included the Amazon Rain Forest, community parks, youth community clubs and schools. Last summer, Dave Matthews Band gave a historic benefit concert in Central Park, raising more than $2 million for New York City’s parks and public schools.
