This is what the ladies from DECLARE CONCERTS have to say about themselves:

"DECLARE. wait, what?

exactly. what is it? why? how? well. it's a program that organizes concerts with amazing bands, for good causes. here's how it works. we line up the bands for each concert, and pick a date. we adopt a charity, where the rest of the profits from the concert go. we advertise like crazy, and do fun things like post site updates. and then...

we throw a huge concert party.

pretty cool, huh?





we're always looking for new bands from michigan (or touring through) to play at our concerts, and the charity changes each concert because we know that there are tons of good causes out there and we wanna do everything we can to help! this program is for people who play music, people who listen to music, people who want to do good in the community. really, it's for everybody.



how did it all start?

good question. to be perfectly honest, it all started in the brains of two high school chicks, jennifer and lina. that's us, two girls who decided to combine our favorite hobby (creeping myspace and purevolume) with another thing we both want to do: help the world. we're still working on our first concert, but we're hoping to make declare a permanent part of the michigan music community. i mean, come on. promoting artists? giving to charity? meeting bands? having concerts? it's a win-win-win-win. wanna know more?
