Funksgiving Music & Food Festival: Live & Listen's Annual Thanksgiving Benefit
Stay tuned for details on Funksgiving 2018!
Funksgiving is Live & Listen's inaugural live music event in Montgomery, Alabama, held annually on the night after Thanksgiving, which is conveniently the night before the Auburn vs. Alabama football game, also known as The Iron Bowl. The idea was to start a tradition in Montgomery on a night where many natives are back in their hometown. Our hope is to continue this tradition for many years, ultimately making Funksgiving one of the most highly anticipated annual music events in the Southeast.
Funksgiving 2017 featured CBDB, Funk You, Soul Mechanic, & The Talismen. The fourth annual event was relocated to the heart of downtown Montgomery on Lower Dexter Avenue. The event was a benefit for E.A.T. South and ultimately raised $1000 for the local non-profit
Funksgiving 2016 featured The Werks (two sets), McLovins, & Dank. The event was a benefit for Family Promise of Montgomery and E.A.T. South. The event raised $1000 for both Family Promise and E.A.T. South.
Funksgiving 2015 featured Robert Randolph & The Family Band, McLovins, & BYOG at the Union Station Train Shed in Montgomery, AL on Friday, November 27th 2015. The event raised a total of $3000 for Parkinson Association of Central Alabama. The event drew over 700 attendants in Downtown Montgomery and served as Live & Listen's largest show in Montgomery to date.
Funksgiving 2014 was the inaugural Live & Listen event. The show featured Earphunk and McLovins at The Warehouse at Alley Station and raised a total of $2500 for Run Bell Run, a local fundraising campaign for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event drew over 400 people to Downtown Montgomery, setting the tone for many great shows ahead for Live & Listen.
