The Major Rager in Augusta,GA following the epic first night of the Masters Golf Tournament featured Gov’t Mule, Lettuce, and the Revivalists ( Interview with David Shaw Here) for a night of stellar music and epic sit-ins. Members of Umphrey’s McGee and the New Deal rocked 80s covers at an after party as the Omega Moos. LiveMusicDaily was a proud official media partner of the event which was streamed live on Sirius XM’s Jam On ( there was a great interview w/ Warren by Ari Fink in-between sets).
Sure, that was all fun. However, if you recall reading our interview with George Claussen (Full Interview Here) you would know that Friends With Benefits,who hosted the event, cares about music AND community.
“One of the reasons we started Friends With Benefits Fund was to do just that, to make a difference in the community by getting a younger generation involved with philanthropy all while having a great time.”
Well congrats! Mission accomplished. George and Hank Wharton presented Turn Back the Block $10,000. Turn Back The Block is a charity that helps revitalize the historic Harrisburg Community in Augusta.Big ups Friends with Benefits Fund! We will keep you posted on all future Friends with Benefits events on LiveMusicDaily.
