Pearl Society

Just like pearls, music is timeless and precious.

The Pearl Society is an outlet for music lovers to plug into Austin’s legendary music scene while backing HAAM's life-saving healthcare programs.

The name Pearl Society is a tribute to HAAM’s founder, Robin Shivers. In both body and spirit, Robin was beautiful and loved wearing pearls. When Robin passed away in 2009, her signature pearls became a symbol of her dedication and love for HAAM.

Robin understood that music brought people together and she worked tirelessly with dedicated community leaders to create HAAM as a way to offer Austin’s musicians security and stability in an otherwise unpredictable industry.

You will be recognized you as a Pearl Society member by having your name listed on this page. Your membership can also be anonymous or donated to a friend or family member.

Why your Membership Matters

Without access to HAAM’s lifesaving services, the artists who create the music we love would be without options, without healthcare and ultimately, without the stability they need to sustain and grow their careers.

Your Pearl Society membership provides HAAM with a stable funding source to maintain and expand the life-changing services and support we offer our musician members.
