Back in April, we received a message on our Facebook page from a band called Avanti, based out of Cincinnati. The message was from Cody, the band’s drummer and booking agent extraordinaire. In it, he invited A Voice for the Innocent to Avanti’s yearly charitable festival called Forward Fest. The cool thing about Forward Fest is that it is actually a series of shows across Ohio, raising money for a number of charities. Of course, we were honored to be invited and happily accepted.
You see, we’ve been very lucky to have been supported by a number of local artists in Cincinnati. In fact, we were basically born from the scene. There have been many bands over the years who have saved us booth space at their shows, who’ve played benefits for us and who have shared our message on stage. It makes all of the difference for us, because the conversation about rape and sex abuse has to happen one by one. There’s no better place like a local show to get together like a family and share raw emotion and get the conversation started.
So, big thanks to Avanti and all of the bands below for having us out and helping us raise awareness! If you’re interested in holding a charitable event for A Voice for the Innocent or just having us come out to one of your shows to share the message, head on over to our Contact page and let us know what you’re thinking. We’d be happy to work with you!
