WRRV and New Paltz Rock are set to team for a benefit concert to support the Music Matters charity. A local organization that aims to get instruments into the hands of less fortunate Hudson Valley kids.

Join us at Newburgh Brewing Company on Thursday the 24th from 6-8 PM. New Paltz Rock band Ashes of The Phoenix will be rocking out. And it's free to get in! But it's a fundraiser, how is it going to make money? We're glad you asked. You'll see tip jars on the bar when you're there. So when you're ordering delicious adult beverages or food, do us a favor and put a few bucks in the bucket. It is, after all, for the kids.

This is Music Matters in action. A local fourth grade student was able to play an instrument that otherwise would have been difficult to afford.
