The Queen City Quarantine Concert is free and benefits local non-profits. It’s being put on by Rise Collaborative and Unite By Night.

It’s latest mission Rise Collaborative is teaming up with Unite By Night, a league of young professionals, for the virtual concert. It showcases several local artists of all genres and several non-profits.

During each set, facts about both the artist and non-profit will pop up on the screen. You’ll also have the opportunity to donate to either.

“The community is learning about them be aware, so that when we come out on the other side of this those non-profits are stronger and the local artists have a little extra cash in their pockets,” said Kevin Heffernan, Managing Director Rise Collaborative .  One of those many non profits benefiting is Feedmore WNY.

The concert will be streaming on both Unite by Night’s and Rise Collaborative’s pages according to a story on News 4 Buffalo (WIVB-TV).

“When you’re watching it if you have a casting device you can get it up on your tv.”
it’s meant to feel like an at-home concert event.


“Grab a drink, grab your wallet and if you have the means to make a tip for an artist or a donation for a non-profit,” said Heffernan. “We hope those pop-up video tidbits will compel you to do so.”

The concert kicks Saturday night, at 7. For more information head here.
