WHO: Mission to Midnight
The Midnight Mission (TMM) is thrilled to welcome Mission to Midnight (M2M) back for their 2nd visit. M2M is a homegrown Midnight Mission band. Comprised of residents of Skid Row, including participants in TMM’s Crisis and Bridge and Recovery Programs, M2M formed in June 2018. Each member of this eclectic rhythm & blues group brings their own flavor to this unique ensemble. The band is inspired by the daily struggles that people encounter in and out of the streets of Skid Row. Their goal is to spread a message of hope to the community that they call home with their uplifting music. Since their last visit, they have been practicing tirelessly on new material for this special performance.
WHY: The Midnight hosts Music With A Mission (MWAM) to entertain and inspire those living on Skid Row. Music is a survival tactic for many people in dealing with life’s difficulties. MWAM is aimed at bringing our community together through music. MWAM is quite simple. Musicians bring their instruments and play for our homeless and near-homeless guests. It is an intimate setting, so musicians have the opportunity to interact with our guests, answer questions and/or talk about music and its history. We encourage musicians to invite their fan base so they can engage and enjoy music with individuals they would not normally encounter in their daily lives. We are currently looking for sponsors for this ever-growing community event. If you are interested, please contact Georgia Berkovich at 213-624-4588 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
