Most importantly, your support of Music for Me Fine allows us to provide assistance to critically ill children and their families where they need it the most. Through our partnerships with Duke, UNC, and WakeMed Children’s Hospitals, we work with hospital staff to ensure parents and caregivers have the resources they need in order to be present with their children. Whether it is by providing Chemo Ducks to newly diagnosed pediatric patients before their first chemotherapy treatment or providing a family a month’s worth of hospital parking vouchers, Me Fine is committed to partnering with families throughout their journey. Your support, as sponsor or attendee, makes this happen. Thank you!
About Django Haskins: Described variously as “an intersection of Randy Newman’s gruff flamboyance, Nick Cave’s gothic élan and Leonard Cohen’s pithy wisdom” and “a pop stylist, with a quick lyrical wit and a card shark’s finesse in delivering a hook” Durham, NC based songwriter and author Django Haskins makes mongrel American music.
Django has recorded nine albums of his songs and has had his music featured in many indie and major films and TV. His music has received rave reviews in Pitchfork, Billboard, CMJ, and his mother’s letters, but it’s in the live shows where the music really comes alive, thanks to good old-fashioned showmanship and grit. Django tours both solo and with his band, The Old Ceremony.
About Eric Scholz: Eric wanted to be a rock star. After hearing an English singer-songwriter by the name of Nick Drake, music meant something more to him entirely. Bruce Springsteen was an influence and inspired him musically. Tom Petty, John Prine and Bob Dylan were also in heavy rotation.
We are indebted to the support of the following sponsors who help us offset event costs by investing in our mission. Join us in thanking each and every one of these generous organizations!
