Evanescence, Joan Jett, Nancy Wilson + More Join Reverb Charity Auction
Reverb has just announced a partnership with over 50 artists who will be giving items to auction off for charity. Evanescence, Joan Jett and Nancy Wilson are among some of the rock names who are participating in The Girls Rock Reverb Gives Auction, which will feature instruments, experiences, signed vinyl and other memorabilia.
Some of the items that will be up for auction are a pair of Hurley sneakers worn by Joan Jett on tour, an Oscar Schmidt autoharp signed by Heart's Nancy Wilson, a microphone and records signed by Stevie Nicks, a vinyl signed by Evanescence and more. The proceeds will go toward empowering young females, transgenders and gender non-conforming individuals who have a passion for music. See more of the memorabilia here.
Reverb raised more than $20,000 last year through a similar auction. This year's will run from Tuesday, May 21 to the 28.
“I want young girls to know that there are so many ways that they can contribute to the music industry. They can be producers, writers, CEOs, and managers. There are very powerful positions in the business that need to be filled by powerful young women,” says Linda Perry, producer and former singer of 4 Non Blondes, who donated an acoustic guitar.
