Positive Legacy & Eddie Roberts Present The Payback!
Eddie Roberts, guitarist of UK funk band The New Mastersounds, decided to start a series of benefit concerts to focus on various homeless issues in the US. Having lived for a period of time in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco and feeling a real sense of connection and community, he was personally touched by the homeless situation, including the ignorance of the reality surrounding the issue. Eddie decided to join his music with artists and organizations that are working to make a difference in the lives of others.
After a very successful weekend of shows in San Francisco this past September where The Payback raised $26k for Compass Family Services, an organization dedicated to supporting San Francisco’s vulnerable and homeless families.
Working together with Denver’s Road Home and Denver Public Schools Foundation, Eddie has put together a weekend of music to benefit Denver’s 2,000 school children currently identified as homeless. For more information and to buy tickets visit: http://eddierobertspayback.com/

Positive Legacy Poster
Positive Legacy is pleased to share our new poster created by artist Nathaniel Deas of Bourbon Sunday. Nathaniel Deas has been creating concert posters since 2008 and has had the pleasure of creating posters for musicians and bands such as Ziggy Marley, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, Beats Antique, and The Infamous Stringdusters just to name a few. After seeing the list of artists that Nathaniel Deas has created artwork for, you could image that we were over the moon with excitement when he agreed to take time to create something special for Positive Legacy. Thank you Nathaniel Deas for encompassing what Positive Legacy is all about in your artwork. Many thanks also goes to Michael Early of Ed Early Print Company Inc. for the printing donation. Ed Early Printing is Baltimore’s oldest and largest print broker for over 20 years, specializing in commercial and web printing.
