GRAMMY-nominated music producer and engineer David Ivory hosted a Hurricane Sandy Relief concert to aid musicians affected by the devastating storm. The concert and fundraiser took place Jan. 18 at Puck Live in Doylestown, Pa., and benefitted MusiCares Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.
"Your insurance company deals with your property but not with your electric guitar," said Ivory, who has musician friends who were deeply impacted by the storm.
Ivory, a Recording Academy Trustee and member of The Academy's Philadelphia Chapter, has produced a monthly concert series at Puck Live for years. For the January show, Ivory decided a fundraiser was in order.
"We have a really good relationship with David Ivory. We wanted to do what we could do for them," said Samantha Kovacs, general manager at Puck Live.
The concert featured performances by Flux Capacitor, Danny Lynch Band, Jon DeLise, the Sunset Villains, Ashley Leone, Carla Cappa, Ten Foot Tall Band, and Ashley Jones, and featured a silent auction with donations from local businesses.
