The calendar below lists all of the current events for Musicians In Action. Every Musicians In Action show is dedicated to a specific homelessness agency. If you bring a designated in-kind donation to a show, M.I.A. will reward you with a free pass to a future M.I.A. show ($5-15 value).
Please note that some venues have more limited seating than others. Reservations are required if you plan to attend a show at Dazzle (email: info@MusiciansInAction.org) It is also possible that some show dates & times may change, but M.I.A. will always seek to reschedule a cancelled show.
We also volunteer every Second Saturday of the month and collect items every Third Thursday. Help us out and you'll also receive passes to our shows. Will you join us?
***M.I.A. has implemented some new programs for 2012! Every 2nd Saturday is an M.I.A. Volunteerism Day and every 3rd Thursday is an M.I.A. Collection Day. What does this mean?
We volunteer at various homelessness agencies (usually 10AM till 2PM) on the 2nd Saturday of the month and you are invited! Come rub elbows with local musicians and help serve the underprivileged. Please see the calender for details and contact us at info@MusiciansInAction.org to get involved.
On 3rd Thursdays, please collect and/or donate any of the following: nonperishable food items, diapers, and gently used clothing, footwear and linens. M.I.A. has board members around the Denver Metro area that will come pick these up and distribute to the agencies we serve. When you have items, please contact us at donations@MusiciansInAction.org to arrange a pickup.
