For the Nomads is a fundraiser that was started by touring crew member Frank Fanelli as a direct reaction to the devastating effect COVID-19 has had on those who rely on live entertainment for a living. It was born as a necessary reaction to these circumstances out of everyone's control to mitigate the toll it has taken on the touring industry.
As a 14 year touring musician, tour manager, merchandise seller, and lighting director, Frank felt compelled to find a way to help the community that was reeling under the stress of being almost entirely out of work. He asked his friend and fellow touring crew member, Tatiana Danielle, to help him organize what started as a modest GoFundMe campaign. It has since morphed into a major campaign to support their peers and to bring awareness to the touring entertainment industries' unique position during this global pandemic.
"I think the general public has
no idea what roadies do.
Bless 'em all. I just play the songs.
They make the show happen.”
- Tom Petty
