According to Bonamassa, the event “raised over $45,000 in an afternoon – all of which will be given to artists in desperate need of relief.”

He continued, “I want to thank everyone who participated, contributed, and donated their time to make this happen. Reaching as many musicians as possible has been our goal from the beginning and I am pleased to see that we will be able to help hundreds of musicians get the music started again. The more donations we receive, the more help we can provide.”
