I went to one of their events with some friends. One of the bands we liked was playing. We weren't expecting much but when we left, we were educated on some issues that were important to us and we had a great time at the show!

I was introduced to Bands for Lands about 6 months ago. Jeremy, the founder of the organization, is truly an amazing visionary that is passionate about sustainability and conservation through engaging events. The Rock Paper Scissor Tournaments I've been a part of are always a great time with great bands playing.

I have been introduced to BFL through mutual friends and have been amazed at how much of my local interests have been influenced by this Nonprofit! I have been to events they have hosted, supported, or simply because I knew like-minded friends would be there. Every experience has been a good one – truly! I cannot think of many other organizations that I am excited to share with others. I feel honored that BFL is a local charity (for me); I can help out on a deeper level, and that the results are tangible.

Bands For Lands has created a very unique medium that combines education with entertainment. The city of Denver thrives off creativity and BFL has found a way to feed that craving with a dose of social responsibility. My experience with the organization comes from working for them, and hiring them. They are a solid organization through and through. I look forward to working with them more in the future.

Bands for Lands is an organization really making a difference in communities across the Front Range in Colorado. Not only are they using music and the creative arts to raise funding and awareness on eco-social causes they in turn are supporting music and the arts! My band played an event for them and BFL helped give us additional exposure but they paid us well for a charity event!
