Dave Matthews, the Trey Anastasio Band, Aaron Neville, and Hurray for the Riff Raff performed a charity benefit called the Concert for Island Relief at Radio City Music Hall on Jan. 6, 2018. Matthews performed mostly solo acoustic and Neville was accompanied only by a guitarist and pianist, but the Trey Anastasio Band was a full eight-piece ensemble.

  All proceeds from the event and from online donations will benefit hurricane relief efforts in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Funds will support both immediate and long-term needs in the devastating aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

  The Madison Square Garden Company donated the use of Radio City Music Hall and covered all venue-related expenses, so that all proceeds from “A Concert for Island Relief” will go directly to organizations benefitting the victims of the hurricanes that devastated parts of the Caribbean. Additionally, Ticketmaster donated its net proceeds from ticket service fees to this event.
