It’s almost time for Musicians with a Mission 2017! Join us for a festive shrimp boil, music by the Blackwater Brass, a silent auction, and more. Your ticket purchase will go to support our client sustainability campaign and help people begin their journey out of poverty.

Our featured band for the evening, Blackwater Brass is an Ocean Springs, Mississippi, based ten piece funk and jazz band. They’re heavily influenced by New Orleans style funk mainstays like The Meters, Galactic, and Dirty Dozen Brass Band, but regularly drop in hints from many genres across the spectrum from gospel to EDM as well as a mix of fun pop covers throughout a performance.

Back Bay Mission’s client sustainability programs help people begin their journeys out of poverty.

Bridges out of Poverty helps people move out of poverty through an evidence-based curriculum that includes mentoring. A 16-week class helps participants create plans and strategies what will help them achieve their goals. During and after that class, participants receive mentoring from community members as well as ongoing support from Mission staff.

Community health initiatives help people be good stewards of their health. Through classes and activities, participants learn about common health problems and how to prevent them. Through case management, people with health problems are supported through their illness. Together, these initiatives address the barriers caused by poor health, make our community healthier, and position our neighbors for sustainability.

The veterans support fund gives immediate help to veterans who hit a bump on the road to self-sustainability. This fund helps veterans fix their cars, buy clothes for job interviews, and overcome other obstacles on the way to a better life.

Join us on September 28, 2017, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at Hard Rock Live in Biloxi! Buy your tickets online or by calling us at 228-432-0301.
