Love Rocks NYC at the Beacon Theatre / March 7, 2024

Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, the Black Keys, Hozier, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Tom Morello of Rage against the Machine, Don Felder of the Eagles, Bettye LaVette, Joss Stone, Allison Russell, Emily King, Marcus King, Lucius, Larkin Poe, Trombone Shorty, Luke Spiller of the Struts, Quinn Sullivan, and Bernie Williams were among the musicians that helped this year’s Love Rocks NYC concert raise $3.8 million for a New York City-based charity, God’s Love We Deliver. Conan O’Brien, Jim Gaffigan, Martin Short, Bill Murray, and Tracy Morgan acted as masters of ceremony for the four-hour event. (The concert can be viewed on Veeps.com.)

Bassist Will Lee of the CBS Orchestra served as the music director. The house band consisted of guitarists Larry Campbell (Levon Helm, Bob Dylan) and Eric Krasno (Soulive, Phil Lesh & Friends), keyboardists Jeff Babko (Jimmy Kimmel Live) and Michael Bearden (Lady Gaga), drummers Steve Gadd (James Taylor, Paul Simon) and Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live), and percussionist Pedrito Martinez (Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Camila Cabello). The ensemble also included the six-piece God’s Love Horns and the six We Deliver Singers. Radio personality Ken Dashow served as the evening’s off-stage master of ceremonies.

The eighth annual Love Rocks NYC concert at the Beacon Theatre will support God’s Love We Deliver’s mission to prepare and deliver free medically-tailored meals to home-bound New Yorkers. The funds generated by the 2024 concert will provide 380,000 meals. Since the first concert in 2017, more than 100 musicians have helped raise $33.8 million and helped to fund 3.8 million meals to informed New Yorkers.

“God’s Love We Deliver is unique in New York City,” David Ludwigson, president and CEO of God’s Love We Deliver, told the audience. “We are the only non-profit provider of medically-tailored meals. We started as an AIDS services organization nearly 39 years ago, and now we cook and home deliver medically-tailored meals to people living with more than 200 different diagnoses.”

Last year, the God’s Love We Deliver staff and volunteers cooked, packaged, and home-delivered more than 4 million medically-tailored meals to more than 14,700 New Yorkers living with debilitating illnesses. To donate, text DELIVER to 41444 or click here.
