This project was funded on 25 Mar 2016!

33 And a Third are a non-profit org with the aim of promoting and connecting new and emerging artists in Manchester to venues and audiences locally and nationally, using these events simultaneously for charitable initiatives such as fundraising.

We need your pledges, no matter how big or small, to help us bring a fantastic gig to Rebellion Bar Manchester during these Easter holidays, and helping us to bring security to the lives of those that queue up for food donations week in, week out.

Entrance to the gig is to be paid in foodstuffs, so the money you can help donate will enable us to hire a sound engineer and security, and as well to provide refreshments and promote the event.

There will be 14 young musicians performing, all of whom are fantastically skilled and can promise you a great evening!

Help us to gather a little seed capital so that we can put on this event, that'll reap much greater rewards for the Manchester Central Food bank.

What we'll deliver:

  • Advertise on multiple social media platforms
  • Get foodstuff donations for Manchester Central Foodbank
  • It is likely to be recorded by That's Manchester, an online/freeview based news channel
  • Liaise with artists & their fans from UTC@MediaCityUK
  • Liaise with the team at Manchester Central Foodbank
  • Put on a 14+ gig at Rebellion Bar in Manchester

Why it's a great idea:

We all love music. And if we can support a charity and make a difference, whilst enjoying a great night out, what could be better? We work with some great musicians from all genres who love to perform to new audiences wherever they can, and are excited to perform for this important cause.

Charities may not be in a position to access a whole range of musicians from rock, indie, pop or choirs to perform at their events. Likewise, most young performers might not necessarily have the experience to put on their own events to showcase their music to new audiences & we want to help the musicians with out of pocket expenses so they can continue to help charities.

Steps to get it done:

  • Confirm details with the musicians on the line up with our event plans
  • Confirm via email the venue details & costs
  • Crowdfund to raise funds for the event costs
  • Deliver foodstuff donations to the food bank
  • Prepare the event space with venue staff
  • Publicise the event on social media platforms & possibly online TV

We are crowd-funding the cost of putting on the gig as most of the 14 young musicians involved are students & on low pay. We really believe it's important to involve young people in initiatives such as these, so please help us to make this gig a reality!

There are multiple transferable skills that the young performers can develop from being involved and all of these skills can be utilised in numerous ways in their lives such as working a part of a team, recognition of the roles involved in the process of putting on an event on. On an emotional intelligence level the young performers are able to guide their thinking, compassion and behaviour as a result of interaction with the charities.
