The concert is presented by the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation and will benefit God’s Love We Deliver. God’s Love We Deliver was founded during the AIDS pandemic in 1985 and has provided essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization cooked and delivered more than 2.6 million meals for 10,000 New Yorkers living with severe illnesses.
The Love Rocks NYC benefit concert was first launched in 2017 as a way to help fund charities local to New York. Since its launch, the concert series has helped raise $20 million dollars to help New Yorkers in need.
The benefit concert highlights the charity’s continued mission of providing life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people in the NYC area. Past headliners for the Love Rocks NYC concerts include Dave Matthews, Bon Jovi, Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, Andra Day, and more.
The evening’s house band will include Steve Gadd (James Taylor, Eric Clapton), Shawn Pelton (Saturday Night Live), Eric Krasno (Soulive, Phil Lesh & Friends), Larry Campbell (Levon Helm, Bob Dylan), Jeff Young (Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Camila Cabello) and Ricky Peterson (Fleetwood Mac, David Sanborn, Prince, George Benson). Ken Dashow of Q104.3 Radio will also serve as the evening’s “voice of god.”
