On Saturday, Aug. 1, Louisiana Red Hot Records, in partnership with WHIV
FM 102.3 and OffBeat Magazine, will broadcast a MASK UP! COVID DOWN!
concert on 102.3 FM and stream on LRHR’s Facebook Live to raise funds for
Masks For America, a nonprofit that has given over 250,000 free
FDA-certified masks to frontline heroes. MASK UP! COVID DOWN! will air
from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Central.
Louisiana Red Hot Records Label General Manager & Head of A&R Lilli Lewis
is curating the roster for MASK UP! COVID DOWN!, with acts from Roland Guerin and Glen David Andrews to Grammy Nominees Tank and the Bangas, Sean Ardoin and Dwayne Dopsie.
Lewis has co-written and co-produced the MASK UP! benefit theme song to debut 8/1 and spread the word to mask up, protect one another and help eliminate the virus so lives will be saved and live music can get rolling again. Pre-sales are available now with proceeds from the single going towards the cause.
WHIV-FM Founder Dr. MarkAlain Dery, infectious disease specialist for two decades, is also working with the City of New Orleans on his Mask Up initiatives to help flatten the curve as Louisiana becomes a hot spot again.
MASK UP! COVID DOWN! benefit tee shirts will be available from OffBeat Magazine’s merchandise store, and MASK UP! COVID DOWN! masks will be sold at Dirty Coast to raise funds for Masks for America, and remind everyone to care for each other by masking up to bring Covid-19 down.
