After three sold out shows by international superstar Rob Thomas, VNUE announced today that it raised more than $20,000 for Sidewalk Angels Foundation from its instant live recordings at the Borgata Casino Music Box in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
This was the eighth consecutive year that Thomas held the Music Box shows fully benefiting Sidewalk Angels, and the second year in a row that VNUE has helped raise money with its unique line of “instant live” recorded products.
The recordings of each show were made available immediately after they finished via VNUE’s set.fm and exclusive licensee DiscLive.
These shows, featuring Rob and his full band, and which Thomas has described as “singer-songwriter storyteller events,” featured him performing a range of material from both Matchbox Twenty and his critically-acclaimed solo albums, as well as other material.
“It was great partnering with VNUE again for the instant live recordings,” said Rob Thomas. “I’m so excited that the company was able to not only raise $20,000 for Sidewalk Angels Foundation, but also gave fans some cool mementos with the limited-edition CD sets (which we have never done before) and the download cards! We look forward to working with VNUE in the future.”
“I am so happy to again be working with Rob and Sidewalk Angels Foundation and the important work they do for animals,” said Zach Bair, CEO of VNUE and a dog lover himself. “I am beyond proud that we doubled the amount we raised for the charity last year, and that VNUE can contribute to this great cause, and at the same time, provide fans something very special to remember their shows.”

Sidewalk Angels Foundation, founded by Marisol Thomas, Rob’s wife, is dedicated to providing critically needed funds and support to over 20 no-kill animal shelters and animal rescues across the country, that “help to fight for the rights and fair treatment of those with no voice.” Proceeds from each and every sale directly benefits Sidewalk Angels.
