HISTORY


Since 2008, HAAM's annual Corporate Battle of the Bands has raised over half a million dollars to help keep Austin's musicians healthy and rocking out. The brainchild of Tim Taylor, Dan Donally, and Keith Donahoe, Corporate Battle of the Bands was originally held at Antone's and quickly became a signature event. As HAAM grew, the event moved to the Moody Theater at ACL Live, where it has been held since 2014.
