THE MUSICIAN TREATMENT FOUNDATION PRESENTS HAPPIER MUSICAL HOUR LIVE STREAM CONCERT WITH SPECIAL GUEST ELVIS COSTELLO!

The Musician Treatment Foundation proudly presents our Happier Musical Hour live stream concert for Community First Village featuring Allan Mayes, LaDonna, and special guest Elvis Costello!

Join The Musician Treatment Foundation tonight, Wednesday 29th April, at 5 pm CST for an hour of music, storytelling, and joy.

Musician Treatment Foundation was founded in late 2017 as the first nonprofit of its kind – in design, scope, and breadth – to assist in providing free specialized upper limb treatment and continuity of care for needful musicians at home and on tour.

To date, MTF has made it possible for dozens of uninsured and
under-insured professional musicians in Austin and NYC to receive free orthopedic surgical and nonsurgical shoulder, arm, and hand care that would otherwise have cost over $1 million in total.

Now, we are building a nationwide network of 100 orthopedic surgeons, hand-picked for their ethics and expertise, to join our efforts and help more musicians around the country.

MTF is overseen by a distinguished board of directors that contributes keen expertise in business, design, education, healthcare, law, technology, and of course music.

The board is chaired by the founder,renowned orthopedic surgeon, Alton Barron, and includes the legendary Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, and other luminaries in their respective fields.

The mission of MTF is driven by five initiatives, you can learn about them here!
Since you put me down, it seems i've been very gloomy. You may laugh but pretty girls look right through me.

A lot of people made some very touching comments about the stream. Thank you all so much for your interest. we had no idea that two senior citizens talking nonsense for an hour would stir up so many different emotions among you all.
There's still a few things up our sleeves for future broadcasts so I hope you'll all keep in touch.
In the meantime here's a couple of pages from the now legendary little green school exercise book. [ I think it had been used for Greek Literature] of 1972.

Great stream and lovely to see Rusty reunited at last. Allan seems a very fine and talented chap - and going back even further than Nick Lowe does in EC’s life there’s no airs and graces present. One lockdown bonus - and it’s not a small one to a fan like me - is to have Elvis around so much at the moment, and delightfully mainly just gasing with mates (when he lets them get a word in edgeways bless him) rather than pronouncing after or pouncing on a journo’s questions. I bunged a few shillings to the cause because that’s why Elvis took part, what a charity social media influencer side he’s become lately!
