Band Central is a private philanthropy with a mission is to unite a community of nonprofits, talented musicians, donors and audience members through themed music concerts. For over a decade, we have partnered with nonprofits in the Greater Connecticut area to maximize their revenue potential using our multifaceted collaborative approach. Founder Rob Fried's extensive investment background, robust local network, passion for music and personal desire to 'do good' combine to fuel our important work. Since 2005 Band Central has raised approximately $4 million dollars for its charities, produced 110 events and worked with approximately 50 different local non-profits. 
Our philosophy: "when we band together, we are stronger than the sum of our parts."
