Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, Hayley Williams, and More to Support the Girls Rock Camp Alliance With Reverb Auction

Today, we here at Reverb are excited to announce our partnership with a slew of exceptional artists and musicians for an auction launching this Thursday, May 10 in support of the Girls Rock Camp Alliance (GRCA)—a nonprofit supporting more than 100 summer camp and music education programs around the world for female, transgender, and gender non-conforming youth.

The Girls Rock Reverb Charity Auction will feature items like autographed memorabilia and music from Dolly Parton, Laura Jane Grace, Fergie, Reba McEntire, Lydia Loveless, Marian Hill, and Charli XCX. Other musicians like Sarah Lipstate, Lady Gaga, Melissa Etheridge, Sadie Dupuis, Evanescence, Ana Popovic, Tal Wilkenfeld, and Amanda Shires are parting with guitar pedals they’ve used on stage and in the studio.

Jillette Johnson is donating a Porchboard Micro Bass, Bonnie Tyler and Paramore’s Hayley Williams are donating microphones, Jillette Johnson Jillian Speece is parting with a ukulele, and Imogen Heap is donating one of the Harmonic Whirlies (made by Sarah Hopkins) that she’s used on stages all over the world.

Fans will also have an opportunity to bid on more than gear as well, with Grammy-nominated saxophonist and singer Mindi Abair donating two concert tickets with meet-and-greet passes, along with a signature “Pretty Good for a Girl” necklace.

And that’s not all.

In addition to their donations, many of the musicians we’ve partnered with also shared their own pieces of advice and wisdom about playing music, supporting Girls Rock, and the gear they’re donating. Keep reading below for a sneak peek of what you can expect to see at the auction on Thursday.
