Rob Thomas, VNUE’s set.fm Raise More Than $10K For Sidewalk Angels Foundation

VNUE announced today that it raised more than $10,000 for the Sidewalk Angels Foundation from its instant live recordings of international superstar and Grammy-winner Rob Thomas‘ three sold-out January shows at the Borgata Casino Music Box in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

This was the seventh consecutive year that Thomas held the Music Box shows fully benefiting Sidewalk Angels, and the recording of each show were made available immediately after they finished via VNUE’s set.fm as well as partner PledgeMusic.com. The intimate acoustic shows, which Thomas has described as “singer-songwriter storyteller events,” featured him performing a range of material from both Matchbox Twenty and his critically-acclaimed solo albums, as well as other material.

“This was such a tremendous achievement for the Sidewalk Angels Foundation and the important work they are doing, and VNUE and set.fm have been honored to be a part of it,” Zach Bair, CEO of VNUE and “instant music” pioneer DiscLive, said. “Rob is not only an artist with a heart of gold but an extraordinary performer, and along with the impact the money raised from these shows will have, it’s a joy that they will live on forever for fans thanks to VNUE and set.fm’s instant live recordings.”

“Finding unique and special ways to help raise money for Sidewalk Angels has always been something we work hard at. Teaming with VNUE at the Borgata to give fans those shows via instant live recordings in exchange for a donation was a win win for everyone involved,” Thomas’ management said.

Fans can still purchase the show recordings by downloading the set.fm app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or by visiting the following links:

Jeff loves music. He also loves band t-shirts, which has become something of an obsession. There's a vintage Roxy Music t-shirt on eBay for $299 he is absolutely going to get when he starts making the big bucks.
