Bill Murray, co-founder and President of C4AC says: “After years of doing local shows in support of Austin’s music community and successfully producing their annual fundraising event the Austin Cares Concert in 2019, 2020, and 2022, we were given the amazing opportunity to move the event to Moody Center for 2024.” Bill goes on to say: “Obviously, filling a 10,000-seat arena produces new and exciting challenges, not the least of which was finding a suitable headliner. We could not be more thrilled to have been able to secure The Doobie Brothers for this important fund-raising event. They are the perfect fit given their amazing string of recognizable hits, 4- part harmonies, and their long record of supporting charitable endeavors.”
