'All For The Hall' Benefit Returns To L.A. September 23rd
July 21, 2010 at 8:47 AM (PT)
The COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME & MUSEUM’s “All For The Hall” fundraiser will return to LOS ANGELES for a second consecutive year. This year’s event will take place TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd at CLUB NOKIA, featuring “guitar pull” performances by EMMYLOU HARRIS, KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, TAYLOR SWIFT and a surprise guest.
The “All For The Hall” campaign launched in 2005 to address the need for long-term financial security and provide a safety net for the institution and its work. This is the fourth year that the MUSEUM has taken its annual giving event on the road, with previous “All For The Hall” shows held in NEW YORK in 2007 and 2008 and L.A. in 2009.
HALL OF FAME & MUSEUM Director KYLE YOUNG said: “Our ‘All for the Hall’ LOS ANGELES debut gave us an opportunity to focus on West Coast Country music history and remind our guests that these artists and executives and their songs are a part of the story we both preserve and teach at the MUSEUM. By design, guitar-pull content is unplanned and unrehearsed. It was very exciting to see West Coast Country spontaneously become the theme of the 2009 performances, which included musical salutes to GRAM PARSONS, BUCK OWENS and CINDY WALKER, among others. We are grateful for our warm welcome last year and look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones in SEPTEMBER.”
Patrons are offered their choice of seating for 10 for $10,000 or seating for five for $5,000. Individual tickets are available at $1,000 per seat.
