Following the closing of the 2019 Summer NAMM show, On-Stage, a division of The Music People, donated its entire Summer NAMM booth to YEAH! Rocks music camps, a Nashville-based non-profit that puts on several music camps in Tennessee, including Southern Girls Rock Camp and Tennessee Teens Rock Camp.

The donation included all of the products featured in On-Stage’s Summer NAMM booth, including a variety of instrument bags and stands, wall hangers, capos, guitar straps, metronomes, mic stands, guitar pedals, world percussion products, drumsticks and keyboard benches, along with a wide selection of audio accessories.

“This donation makes it possible to serve the hundreds of youth that YEAH! works with each year through not only rock camps, but also partnerships with Title I Schools, community spaces such as DrkMttr Collective, and adult education opportunities like Ladies Rock Camp,” said Sarah Bandy, Executive Director of YEAH! Rocks. “Over 40% of our participants attend on scholarship, and this gear donation makes it possible for YEAH! to continue its mission of never turning anyone away from our programs due to lack of funds.”

“Donating all of the products from our Summer NAMM booth gave us an opportunity to give back to the local Nashville community,” said Josh Berger, Director of Product Development at On-Stage. “We are honored to be able to provide music programs like YEAH! Rocks with a little boost that will help them engage and introduce the joys of music making to even more people.”

Youth Empowerment through Arts and Humanities, Inc. (YEAH!) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable youth arts organization in Nashville. Its flagship summer camps are the Southern Girls Rock Camp and the Tennessee Teens Rock Camp held in both Nashville and Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The mission of the camps is to support a culture of positive self-esteem and collaboration among young people while building community through music.
