Bands on the Bricks is produced by the Downtown Boulder Foundation (DBF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that produces community events and supports diverse and impactful experiences and events in downtown Boulder. DBF has set-up an online giving campaign for the concert series and hopes that the community will consider a donation of any amount to support re-emergence and continuation of downtown community events after the threat of COVID-19 has passed.

 “We know that not being able to gather in person for this tradition will be disappointing to many,” said Downtown Boulder CEO, Chip, “but the health and safety of community remains our top priority. Also important to our work is the opportunity to bring community together in whatever way we can, and Bands Above the Bricks does just that.”

“A virtual concert, while certainly not the same, is an inclusive way for our community, as well as visitors across the worldwide web to come together and support one another during this difficult time,” said Anna Salim, VP, Events & Membership for Downtown Boulder.
