AMFM Suspends Popular “In The Vane Of” Fundraiser Concert Series

| August 11, 2021, 10:15 AM

Local nonprofit Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians, Inc. (AMFM) has postponed its “In the Vane Of” concert series, whose shows were scheduled for August 16, September 13, and October 11 at the Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis. The decision was made by the board in light of the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in the county, the state, and nationally.

“This was a very difficult but appropriate decision for us to make,” says AMFM President Matt McConville. “Our primary concern has to be our responsibility to protect the health of the musicians, the audience, and our community. We do not want to contribute in any way to any additional COVID-19 cases.”

The Arc of Central Maryland

The fundraiser series was postponed a year ago due to the first two waves of the COVID-19 pandemic. The three concerts were to feature a showcase of performances by area musicians presenting music by the Beach Boys, Van Morrison, and the Sun Records label, plus originals by the performers.

“Our shows are unique because of the large number of musicians who participate and share equipment,” says Sean O’Neill, AMFM treasurer and series co-producer. “Several of the performers expressed serious concerns about the recent increase in COVID-19 cases. We are especially concerned about breakthrough infections and know of a handful of fully vaccinated musicians who have tested positive for the virus.”

Liquified Creative Annapolis

Ticketholders will be notified about next steps. “The AMFM board appreciates everyone’s patience, understanding, and support as we all make our way through this shifting landscape,” says P. J. Thomas, AMFM vice president and series co-producer. “Special thanks go to the Rams Head On Stage, whose partnership has been invaluable.”

AMFM was created to provide emergency financial relief to professional Annapolis musicians who cannot work due to sickness, injury, or any other circumstance leaving them unable to perform. It also fosters the next generation of musicians in the Annapolis area through its scholarship and award programs. For more information or to make a donation, visit
