Due to massive cancellations at bars and live venues, artists are struggling to find the means to make ends meet during these unprecedented times.
The solution? In part, a recently created COVID-19 relief fund, managed by Sweet Relief, a non-profit dedicated to providing assistance to career musicians and music industry workers struggling while facing illness.

Who better to help fill the fund than musicians that are all too aware of the challenges the industry faces. Those who are able, of the 1.2 million musicians in the US and Canada, now have the chance to support Sweet Relief and their fellow musicians through BandMix, the largest musician classified online.
"At Bandmix, we care deeply about the musician community. We strive to provide the best network for connecting artists. During these challenging months, we also want to provide some direct assistance to our fellow musicians – Sweet Relief and their mission is a perfect fit." -David Sales, Founder.
