Detroit's Jackie Blue band establishes Music Tour Network to raise over $9,000 for Hurricane survivors. Funds were sent to the Red Cross, Little Stuff Fund, Humane Society and Habitat for Humanity.

What started out as a series of web postings on Jackie Blue's Music Tour Network tribe site has turned into an unprecedented union of grassroots support for the survivors of the devastating hurricanes. The Detroit band produced the tour, recruited the show organizers, established the tour routing and ensured that promotional material was available from the national level to the local level.

The results: 38 artists and 11 shows later, spanning venues across New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, and California, $9,301 was raised for 4 not-for-profits: American Red Cross, Little Stuff Fund, Habitat for Humanity, and the Humane Society.

The grassroots team is now formally organized under the banner of the Music Tour Network ( Tom Libertiny, founding member of the Music Tour Network says, "with the wonderful team of show organizers, artists, venues and sponsors who were the ones that made this tour a success, we now have the network in place to support worthwhile causes and simultaneously introduce great musicians to cities where they normally wouldn't be able to play. Special thanks go out to all of the people who came out to support this tour!"
