Asheville Musicians Coalition

Asheville Musicians Coalition (AMC)  was founded in 2007 by a group  of local musicians from Asheville, NC  who have  spent  over thirty years playing in bands, nightclubs and venues, literally from coast  to coast.

    AMC was created to present  Hometown Holiday Jam (HHJ), an annual benefit  concert  held at The Orange Peel  in Asheville, NC  between Thanksgiving and Christmas each year,  for  twelve years now.

    HHJ  raises funds for local charities such as Mission Childrens Hospital

and Manna Food Bank,  and features popular local groups who perform

regularly in the Asheville area.

    Audiences of HHJ will also be introduced to local up-and-coming  bands

that would normally not have an opportunity to perform at a major local

venue like the incredible Orange Peel.

    Ultimately, AMC will evolve into a non-profit entity with a mission of

promoting local musical talent and venues,  to advocate for the welfare

of working musicians in the area, and provide needed  support in the event of unfortunate  or  extenuating  circumstances.

    Hopefully,  AMC will be able to enlist the support from everyone who loves and appreciates live bands and local music, and from local businesses and venues whose livelyhood thrives or is enhnaced by the efforts and enthusiasm of local musicians and bands.
