Texas. We pride ourselves on being the live music capital of the world

and we are fortunate to have over 8,000 working musicians who

contribute to our music scene. Health Alliance for Austin Musicians

Letter from the Chairman of the Board

Dear Friends,

As I reflect on 2011 and the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians, I am once again awed by the generosity of our

supporters, the dedication of our staff and volunteers, and the commitment from our affiliate service providers. HAAM’s

reach and impact grew deeper this year as the organization served more musicians than ever and as we expanded

through new partnerships with Whole Foods Market and the Academy of Oriental Medicine Austin to offer new nutrition

and wellness services to musicians. Thanks to you, HAAM is providing vital care to musicians so that they can grow and

flourish in their careers, contribute economic and cultural vitality to the community and help keep Austin the Live Music

Capital of the World.

HAAM’s work would not be possible without the support of our community. Because of your generosity, HAAM has helped

over 2,700 musicians access over 41,000 healthcare appointments valued at over $10 million dollars since we began just six

years ago. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the outstanding affiliate service providers with whom we work. We thank The

SIMS Foundation, St. David’s Foundation in partnership with Capital Area Dental Foundation, Seton Healthcare Family, Estes

Audiology and Prevent Blindness Texas for providing vital healthcare services for HAAM musicians.

I want to recognize and thank some special people who helped make 2011 so successful for HAAM. Huge thanks to Keith

Carmichael for his leadership of HAAM Benefit Day. Keith and his outstanding committee again broke records by raising

$235,000 to support HAAM’s work. Mark your calendars for the 2012 HAAM Benefit Day on Tuesday, October 2. Thank you

to Melanie Plummer and Rose Reyes who co-chaired Corporate Battle of the Bands and who have agreed to return to lead

us for the 2012 competition scheduled for Thursday, April 19 at Antone’s. You really raised the bar! Rikki Hardy has taken

over the reigns of Good Eggs & HAAM and has created a strong community of music lovers supportive of HAAM’s work.

I also want to especially recognize and thank Jill McGuckin for her support and work on behalf of HAAM. Working behind

the scenes for years and providing invaluable advice, support, and friendship, Jill is a big reason why the Austin community

knows about HAAM and why our mission is so important.

In 2011 we said goodbye to board members Lidia Agraz, Karen Bartoletti, Madge Vasquez and Howard Yancy. Their

contributions have been many, and we have them to thank for much of our progress. In 2011, we welcomed new board

members Olga Campos, Keith Carmichael and Scott Gillmore and have already experienced the gifts that they bring to

HAAM. We have outstanding leadership on the entire board, and HAAM’s continued success in 2011 was due in large part to

our great leadership.

In late 2011, HAAM made the difficult decision to temporarily close enrollment to new musicians as we planned strategically

for the next level of growth based on the increased demand for services. HAAM has grown rapidly, with a significant spike last

year, and up to now we have been fortunate to have the resources to continually take on new musicians. We are committed

to smart and sustainable growth and the HAAM board, together with the staff and devoted volunteers, have developed an

aggressive plan to meet the financial goals necessary to re-open to new enrollment as quickly as possible, most likely in the

second quarter of 2012. As we look ahead to 2012 we are inspired and guided by the vision of our founder Robin Shivers.

We have established a goal for HAAM which I hope we achieve soon: that Austin, Texas will have the healthiest musicians

in the world.

We are also inspired by the testimonials from the musicians we serve. One HAAM member-musician says, “HAAM provides

an astonishingly vital service for the musicians who have gravitated to Austin in pursuit of a scene which encourages and

appreciates creativity on a scale that few other cities can boast. HAAM’s services (in cooperation with the service providers

who partner in their efforts) are literally saving my life and I am challenged to express my gratitude adequately - but it’s

actually the businesses and other supporters who recognize the unique situation we have here and make it possible (and

keep it healthy!) who have the vision to recognize the value of the ‘Live Music Capital’ who shape the future impact of what

Austin’s musicians will hopefully continue to offer the world.”

This work is only possible because of the generosity of the community, the dedication of our staff and volunteers, and the

amazing contributions of the affiliate service providers. Thank you for sharing your time, talents and treasure to make sure

that we keep music in Austin alive and well.

“I greatly value HAAM, and think it is something very

special for Austin. Thank you for the asthma medicine

and my eyeglasses! I have attended special HAAM

workshops including Repetitive Injury Prevention and

Healthy Eating, which were both very helpful. Through

HAAM, I found Dr. Sarah Buttrey, who is one of the best

doctors I have ever seen for care. Thank you!!”

HAAM Benefit Day

“SXSW got involved in helping with HAAM Benefit Day

because it really brings the Austin community together each

year by engaging artists, local businesses and fans to raise

awareness and raise funds for HAAM’s critical work.”

— Roland Swenson,

Whole Foods Market was presenting sponsor for the sixth

annual HAAM Benefit Day on Tuesday, October 4. HAAM

Benefit Day is a city-wide celebration of live music and the

talented musicians who make Austin and its culture so rich.

It was a record-breaking day all around, with the largest

number of Austin area businesses making a donation or

pledging a portion of the day’s proceeds — more than 215 —

and the most musical performances (more than 170) heard

on any HAAM Benefit Day. The result was the most funds

raised to date for HAAM Benefit Day: $235,000.

HAAM is incredibly grateful to the community for your

support. Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association and C3

Presents matched community donations up to $30,000.

You helped us reach this goal. HAAM is also especially

appreciative of Whole Foods Market, which has made an

incredible commitment to musicians’ health throughout

the six years of this event. Whole Foods Market has taken

their commitment to the next level by offering nutrition

workshops to HAAM member-musicians. Underwriters The

Brown Cup, Brown Distributing, GSD&M, Palisades West,

South By Southwest and ThunderCloud Subs also have

been long-standing supporters of HAAM Benefit Day, and

we thank you.

HAAM invites all businesses, residents and musical acts

to participate in the 7th HAAM Benefit Day on Tuesday,

October 2, 2012.

Special thanks to members of the HAAM Benefit Day 2011

Committee, including chairman Keith Carmichael, Mark

“HAAM plays a huge part in helping me continue being a

full-time musician. It tops off my list of why Austin is the

best city in the world to be a musician or a fan of live music.

I have to applaud the way I’ve been treated by everyone

involved or associated with HAAM including all the health

is top-notch and I feel really taken care of in every way”

2011 Special Events

Ray Benson’s Birthday Bash

Ray Benson celebrated his birthday in style this year with

an all-star bash in March, and he chose Health Alliance for

Austin Musicians as the beneficiary of the festivities. It was

an amazing evening of great music, food and fun! Thank you,

Ray, for sharing your big day with HAAM. We are looking

forward to helping you celebrate again in 2012.

Corporate Battle of the Bands

“Cirrus Logic proudly supports HAAM and Corporate Battle

of the Bands because we love live music and appreciate

the gifts that local musicians give us. Helping musicians

get access to health care through HAAM is one way we can

give back to these artists. And frankly, Corporate Battle

of the Bands is a lot of fun for our employees. In 2011, the

Cirrus Logic Guitar Orchestra, which is our third and newest

band, took the stage and won Fan Favorite. We’re excited to

support the Corporate Battle of the Bands again at Antone’s

on April 19, 2012.” — Jason Rhode, CEO, Cirrus Logic

Cirrus Logic and H-E-B presented the fourth annual

Corporate Battle of the Bands fundraiser and concert on

Thursday, April 28. Bands made up of business professionals

who play music as a hobby competed against each other in

front of celebrity judges and a packed house at Antone’s to

raise awareness and funds for HAAM.

Congratulations to all of the year’s participants — you

were great! A special thank you to event co-chairs Melanie

Plummer and Rose Reyes for your leadership of the event

and to committee members Amanda Garcia, Roxanne

Rouse, Tracy Schell, Darlene Starr and Amy Welborn.

HAAM invites business professionals who love to play live

music to join in the 2012 Corporate Battle of the Bands on

Thursday, April 19.

Holiday HAAM Jam Volume 1

HAAM received an amazing holiday gift this year! The

Holiday HAAM Jam album developed from a whimsical

thought by Dr. Shane Matt of Authentic Smiles Dental Studio.

Rod Williams and Dr. Matt decided to have a holiday party,

record it, and sell CDs to raise money for HAAM. Dr. Matt

approached Mark Addison, of the Aerie Recording Studio,

to engineer the recording but Addison convinced him to do

it right and volunteered his studio and services to make an

album. It became a dream come true after recruiting singersongwriter

Wendy Colonna to organize the project. In less

than two weeks the idea went from conception to recording

nine songs in ten hours on a Sunday afternoon. No small

feat with nearly thirty musicians to play! At the same time

Daddies Juju and David Garza recorded their songs at

studios in New Orleans and El Paso. The remaining five

songs had been previously recorded and were added before

mastering by Mark Hallman at The Congress House Studio.

In less than a month nearly forty musicians and industry

professionals came together to create an album to support

healthcare for Austin musicians.

Special thanks to: Dr. Shane Matt and Authentic Smiles

Dental Studio, Wendy Colonna, Mark Addison of Aerie

Recording Studio, Mark Hallman of The Congress House

Studio, Brown Distributing, Mary McKeown-Christie and

Maven Marketing Solutions, Sanne de Muelenaere, Amy E.

Annual Report 2011

Thank you to the Health Alliance for

Austin Musicians for taking such good

care of me. Since becoming a member,

I’ve kept the ability to maintain yearly

check ups, in addition to medical

assistance in gaining control of a

terrible stye, and minor surgery to

remove a very persistent and unpassable

kidney stone. Since losing

my health insurance a few years ago,

I’ve had no way to keep a regular

exam schedule and I don’t know what

I would have done without them!

A true benefit to the Austin music

community.” — Kevin Lance

“HAAM makes life in general,

as a musician, go smoothly.

I am able to get a physical

every year at a price I can

afford. I save good money

on select medications. My

co-pay for doctor’s visits is

reasonable. There is even a

‘dental van’ where I’ve had

my teeth cleaned. The folks

in the van are great! One time

they hooked me up with a

little paper work and I saved

$800 on a crown. Are you

kidding me? For a working

musician like myself, a smile

is everything! I attended a

workshop created by HAAM

and learned exercises that

prevent injury as a result

of repetitive motion. Now I

play better. HAAM arranged

it and I took a tour at Whole

Foods where I learned how to

eat healthfully on a budget.

I learned some tricks to eat

better on the road too. HAAM

helps me tremendously!”
