Tonic for the Times | Virtual Charity Concert

Virtual Performance

In a demonstration of solidarity and hope, a small team in New Mexico has stepped up to create a documentary concert and storytelling event, TONIC for the Times, to honor New Mexico’s healthcare workers and raise funds for the communities that have the most need throughout the state.

Inspired by B.B. King’s iconic statement that music “is a tonic for whatever ails you,” TONIC will feature:

  • Stories from New Mexico’s healthcare workers and the patients they have helped throughout the state
  • Musical performances by nationally-renowned and local, New Mexico musicians
  • Celebrity shout-outs honoring our caregivers

Performances include: Howie Day, Sophie B Hawkins, Grammy nominated Cedric Burnside Glenn Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket, Chris Vos of the Record Company, Pressing Strings, Steven Dayvid McKellar of Civil Twilight, and Collin Raye, as well as New Mexico bands. Celebrity shout-outs include Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, Senator Martin Heinrich, Penn Jillette of Penn + Teller, Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk, Public Enemy’s Brian Hardgroove, Living Colour’s Muzz Skillings, Representative Deb Haaland, Senator Ben Ray Lujan, and many more!

TONIC will stream its premier on January 30, 2021, at 5:30 p.m. MST and will continue with replay for 24 hours for other time zones to enjoy, participate, and support. Fans can watch and donate at
