Our founder, Taylor Matthews, dreamed that “someday no child will ever have to face cancer.” She bravely battled her illness for 5 years while fighting to raise awareness and fund better treatment for others. Taylor always believed that individuals could make a difference through private efforts, and she LOVED music.
With both of Taylor's passions in mind, tay-bandz has launched Tunes 4 Tay, an a cappella fundraiser. The first Tunes 4 Tay was conceived by Emily Nash of the Vassar Night Owls in the Spring of 2013:
“Music heals. So when the opportunity arose to host a fundraiser for tay-bandz on behalf of my a cappella group, the Vassar Night Owls, I seized it. A cappella has a cult following in colleges all across the country, and it is our duty as performers to use our voices to come together and raise awareness for a cause that affects every one of us. It is not enough to simply raise money for this incredible organization; we have to unite in song and generate a chorus of voices loud enough to drown out the threat of pediatric cancer.” – Emily Nash
Tunes 4 Tay is coming to WashU on November 17th, 2013! With performances by After Dark, The Amateurs, The Aristocats, The Greenleafs, The Ghost Lights, More Fools Than Wise, Mosaic Whispers, The Pikers, Staam, & The Stereotypes, we know it's going to be an amazing night.
The Federal Government provides minimal funding for children’s cancer. Children are not politically powerful, don’t pay taxes and don’t march on the lawn of the White House.
If a difference is to be made in the lives of these children, it will be made by those who dedicate themselves to speaking for them. Without public outcry, these children don’t stand a chance. Taylor knew this first hand and was determined to change it.

"Hope is wishing something will happen. Faith is believing something will happen. Courage is making something happen."
