Tickets for ReTune Nashville’s Benefit Concert and Art Auction Event on October 23 at 7 p.m. at Soundcheck are on sale beginning today (9/10) at retunenashville.org for $35 in advance. Founded as a Tennessee nonprofit organization in May 2010 by Nashville photographer Sheri ONeal, ReTune Nashville’s mission is to provide relief to uninsured musicians in the industry through the sale of artwork created from flood damaged musical gear.
The October 23 event is a kick-off to ReTune Nashville’s global online auction of more than 70 original art pieces created from flood-damaged music instruments. Light hors d’oeuvres and wine will be available during the art viewing and live art auction portion of the event, where a small selection of “ReTuned” gear will be up for bidding. All other “ReTuned” items will be auctioned off online each month leading up to the anniversary of Nashville’s devastating floods. There will also be a silent auction of other items donated from Nashville artists and musicians.
Due to the size of the venue, only 600 tickets will be available for public purchase. Tickets purchased the day of the event will be $45.
ReTune Nashville t-shirts can also be pre-ordered in conjunction with event tickets at a discounted rate of $15. T-shirts are limited to one per ticket.
ReTune Nashville is a 100% volunteer effort, and all proceeds from ticket sales, auction items and merchandise will directly benefit Nashville’s musicians through MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief and the Nashville Musicians Association Flood Relief Fund.
More information regarding performers and online auction details will be announced soon.
