Allan Gogarty Benefit

Live Music Fundraising Event for Musician Allen Gogarty
40+ Irish Bands and Performers Playing All Day at The Joyce Public House
to help defray medical expenses while Allen recuperates
On Saturday February 11 at 2pm, there will be a benefit held for singer/songwriter Allen
Gogarty at The Joyce Public House (315 W 39th St, New York, NY) to assist his family
with medical expenses and bills accrued while Allen recovers from a recent major health
incident.
The event will be an all-day / all-night festival of live music, featuring some of New York
City’s best Irish bands and performers. Some 40+ musicians are assembling – a
testament to Allen and his importance in the community – the growing list of performers
is at the bottom of this release. Raffles will be available at the event, which will be
livestreamed for friends and family from Ireland to Australia to watch along.
On Friday, December 2, Allen suffered a major heart attack and if not for the actions
taken by his wife Amparo to get him to the hospital immediately, he very well may not
have survived. As a result, he will be unable to perform and earn money as his medical
bills mount. To help defray these expenses, a group of his closest friends are putting
together this fundraising event.
Allen has been a working musician based in New York City for the past 25 years,
supporting his family solely on gigs he performs around the tri-state area. He truly is one
of the hardest working musicians on the scene. His generosity of spirit has always been
an invaluable asset to the community. He has participated in countless charitable
fundraisers, helping to raise money for others in need. One of his recent fundraising
efforts raised over $10k USD for the Sláinte Irish relief fund to help Irish immigrants
severely affected by Covid. Last November he spearheaded a musical fundraiser for
The Emerald Isle Emigration Centre. Allen has always delivered when asked to extend
help for the community and now we would like to help him and his family in their time of
need.
Suggested donation at the door is $20. Any donation, of any amount, is greatly
appreciated. Direct donations can be sent via GoFundMe (See below).
