Vocalist Matt Smith explains: “We kicked around the idea of trying to make this happen a few months ago, because we always loved the idea. A lot of people seemed as excited about it as we were, so it just became a matter of trying to find the right place and time to make it happen. Once the ‘Sanctuary From the Streets‘ idea was presented to us and started taking shape, it seemed like the perfect time. We are all honored to be asked to participate in something for such a great cause, and hopefully this will help make a night that already promises to be very special even more special. We will be performing As the World Bleeds front to back in its entirety, and we have another surprise or two up our sleeves as well that you will NOT want to miss. Who knows if or when this will ever happen again, so if there was ever a show worth roadtripping to, this is it! We can’t wait to share the stage with InnerSiege and Oblivion Myth and enjoy a great night of music for a wonderful cause.”
The Bridge Bunch, part of Pastor Bob Beeman‘s Sanctuary International – The Rock ‘N Roll Refuge serves approximately 4,500 meals per month to the homeless, displaced and hungry under the Jefferson Street Bridge in Downtown Nashville, TN. In addition, the BB serves as a collection and distribution point for seven other outreach organizations and also feeds more than 20 families directly.
In addition to food, our volunteers provide clothing, shoes, haircuts and emergency cold weather sleeping bags that help save lives!
All of this costs money and requires hands to do the work. It is our hope that we can raise some funds and awareness to help those who are hurting everyday on the streets of Nashville, TN.
