Rooftop at the Providence G Virtual Concert Will Benefit RI Hospitality Employee Relief Fund
A six-hour live-streamed virtual music benefit will help support restaurant, hotel and tourism employees who are facing difficult financial hardships due to the COVID-19 shutdown.
Even though the Rooftop at Providence G is currently closed due to city and statewide mandates, it will be hosting a very unique event to help benefit the Rhode Island Hospitality Employee Relief Fund. Saturday, May 16 from 4-10 p.m., Rooftop at Providence G will be hosting a six-hour live-streamed virtual music benefit in partnership with Motif Magazine, the Dance Floor DJs and Digital Alliance Music. The Rhode Island Hospitality Employee Relief Fund supports restaurant, hotel and tourism employees who have been laid off and are facing difficult financial hardships due to COVID-19.
Rhode Island artists and deejays will perform a range of musical styles on the Rooftop, such as, acoustic-pop, reggae, rock, electric drum and your favorite dance party hits. Rooftop is taking all precautions in order to bring you this creative event. Each act will be performed separately and the equipment will be cleaned and sanitized between sets.
“These are challenging times for the hospitality industry and for Rhode Islanders eager for the dining and entertainment options now on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that’s why we’ve pulled together this unique, live streamed benefit from the Rooftop to inspire some fun and connection, all while raising funds to help hospitality workers through the current crisis,” says President of G Hospitality Colin Geoffroy. “We’re all eager to get back to work and serving our customers again, but until that’s permitted, we hope this virtual event will bring a little joy and great music to Rhode Islanders, while raising funds for the servers, bartenders, cooks and other restaurant workers who make our state such an amazing dining destination.”
