HAAM Benefit Day in Austin, TX

HAAM is the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians. The show begins on October 4th, 2011.

The mission of the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians is to provide access to affordable health care for Austin’s low income, uninsured musicians, focusing on prevention and wellness.
HAAM Benefit Day, presented by Whole Foods Market, is a uniquely Austin event where businesses donate 5% of the day’s proceeds to HAAM to support musicians’ health. Musicians, most of whom are HAAM members, perform throughout the day at retail stores, outside stages, and more. The event runs from 7am to well past midnight and community members are invited to shop, eat out, listen to great live music and enjoy!
Austin is the “Live Music Capital of the World,” yet many professional working musicians are self-employed and rarely have access to health insurance. Without insurance, they can’t afford preventive health care, including primary medical care, basic dental services and mental health counseling.
The music industry is an important contributor to Austin’s economy:

  • Nearly $1 billion in economic activity, more than $25 million in local tax revenue each year.
  • It provides 11,200 jobs.
  • Austin has more than 8,000 musicians.
  • Millions of dollars added to the city’s economy and tens of thousands of visitors from around the world brought annually by Austin City Limits Music Festival and South By Southwest Music & Media Conference.
