HAAM Day Photo Recap

September 28, 2022

HAAM Day took over the Moody Ampitheater at Waterloo Greenway all day on Tuesday, September 13 with the first musician of the lineup starting their set at 6am. Music at Moody Ampitheather lasted all day with the final set starting at 8:30pm. HAAM also set up almost 200 musicians with performances around Austin at 16 different venues starting around 6pm and with the last set in Austin starting at 11:30pm.

If you aren’t aware of what HAAM is or what they do, here it is in a nutshell, as stated on their website.

“HAAM provides access to affordable healthcare for Austin’s low-income, working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness. Many Austin musicians are self-employed and have no access to health insurance or basic healthcare. They often work multiple jobs and struggle to pay for basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter, with nothing left for healthcare.

That’s where HAAM comes in. By resolving challenges such as long-neglected dental work to hearing loss, heart problems and depression, HAAM and our healthcare partners improve and save musicians’ lives, enhancing Austin’s economy and quality of life. Austin is the “Live Music Capital of the World,” and we aim to keep it that way.

HAAM has helped 6,500 musicians across seven counties access over $123 million in healthcare services since we began in 2005. Services include routine dental work, doctor visits and prescriptions, psychiatric counseling sessions, eye exams, outpatient procedures, specialist referrals, hearing screenings, basic needs assistance and more.”

We are proud to be a HAAM Day sponsor for many years and enjoyed the opportunity to table at Waterloo Park this year.
