The Tambourine Bash benefiting Music Export Memphis

Friday, April 20, 2018, 2:00 AM


If you want to say you’re with the band, you could pick up a tambourine – or you could support Music Export Memphis. The Tambourine Bash is MEM's inaugural fundraiser and will fund the pilot of our Ambassador program, providing 5-10 artists with cash grants for unrestricted use on tour expenses.  The premise of our Ambassador program is pretty simple: we know that artists living in Memphis are already touring the country - sometimes the world - and sharing the Memphis music story. So why not mobilize them as paid brand ambassadors? Artists approved for the Ambassador grant will complete a tourism and storytelling training, where they’ll learn how to share their own Memphis story, and how to talk about the Bluff City -- both as a great place to visit and a great place to live. We’ll help them create content to share, give them some postcards to put on their merch table at each show, and we’ll ask them to give us some feedback when they get home. Then, we’ll give them unrestricted cash (amount based on the number of dates they’re playing and the geographic reach). The Tambourine Bash April 19 | 7 to 10 PM | Old Dominick Distillery Enjoy local craft beer from Crosstown Brewing Company (included with your general admission ticket), Old Dominick cocktails designed by mixologist and musician Sean Murphy (included with your VIP ticket), and live music by The Shotgun Billys and CCDE with Tonya Dyson plus delicious eats by Chef Shawn Davis and a music-themed silent auction with items from Shangri-La Records, GonerFest, ARCHd Design, Fat Possum Records and more. Erf Design will be on hand for Locals & Legends: A Decade of Erf, and you'll have a chance to take one home in our raffle! Remember the night with a photo in a very special photo booth designed by Jamie Harmon of Amurica Photo.
