All proceeds from the event, which also includes exclusive merch and an auction, will benefit Sweet Relief Musician’s Fund via Allen and Monroe’s Raven Drum Foundation Project Resiliency.

In a statement on the livestream, Allen said, “We endeavor on a daily basis, through our music and through our 501C3 Raven Drum Foundation Project Resiliency, to serve, educate and empower people and communities recovering from crisis. We cannot envision a more important and useful way in which to give back than this benefit concert.”
