Artists for the Prevention of School Shootings and Youth Violence has announced a docu-concert at City Winery in Nashville on November 30, 2022. Produced by In Plain View Entertainment, proceeds will benefit our life-saving violence prevention work.
The Promise Band led by Jimmy Vivino and Mark Barden, includes Natalie Barden, Grammy-nominated Freddie Ravel, Eric Finland, John Conte, and Rich Pagano. They’ll be joined by various artists, including Sheryl Crow, Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town, Alternate Routes, and more. Unlike traditional benefit concerts where guest artists perform a two-song set and leave, our docu-concerts spread the guest artists throughout the show playing songs that fit into the storyline.

About Artists for the Prevention of School Shootings and Youth Violence
Artists for the Prevention of School Shootings and Youth Violence was formed by professional musician and Sandy Hook Promise co-founder and CEO Mark Barden and film director Rick Korn. They’re helping to bring awareness to school safety programs, like SHP’s Know the Signs, and other ways to keep our children safe in school – a non-partisan movement to help prevent school shootings and youth violence.
To help boost the impact of the benefit concern, Cauze has pledged to match all gifts up to $50,000!
A Father’s Promise
This show is part of a series of docu-concerts leading up to the release of A Father’s Promise, a feature documentary about Mark’s incredible journey. He survived unthinkable tragedy to become a force for change, and in doing so rediscovered his lost passion for music. The film honors the 10-year remembrance of the 26 children and educators that were taken on December 14, 2012 in our nation’s worst school shooting tragedy.
After Daniel’s murder, I was unable to find comfort in music. Over time, and with the help and support of my family, friends and the music community, I have been able find my way back to my first, real self through creating and performing music again.Mark Barden
