The South City Ambassadors are raising money to fund Hattiesburg's very first music festival hosted by South City Records, a student-run record label at USM.

Who We Are.

The South City Ambassadors is a group of students at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS that is working to raise funds for the very first annual South City Records Music Festival. South City Records is a student-run, independent record label at USM. Yes, there is a record label on campus! We were founded in 2005, and now in 2013 we've got some great things in the works.

This Is Our Mission.

We want to tickle your ear hairs with some sweet tunes from out of town, as well as showcase the amazing music we have here in Hattiesburg.  With the help of Benny's Boom Boom Room, we have the opportunity to put on a multi-band show with featured SCR artists to headline!  This show will be the precursor to an annual music event. Eventually, we want to be able to have a festival in Hattiesburg featuring high quality, well known artists that will help attract attention to all of the exceptional work we do here.  

But we need YOUR help! The proceeds from this campaign will cover the cost of the bands, promotional materials, and event supplies. After these costs are covered, the remainder of our initial $2000 will go into a fund that we will build on for future SCR Fests!

Help Us Help Hattiesburg.

20% of all proceeds received AFTER the initial $2000 will be donated to USM and Hattiesburg tornado relief funds. For those who don't know, Hattiesburg, MS and the USM campus were devastated by a sudden tornado that barrelled through the city on Sunday, February 10, 2013. Now we have the opportunity to support Hattiesburg with our music! 

Any little bit helps, and we can't express enough our gratitude for your contribution to our project.  Help us bring a musical and cultural experience to the town that's given us so much.

Can't Donate? Help Us Spread the Word!

If you can't support us financially, please help us spread the word! The more people we can reach out to, the better our chances are of reaching our goal. Our campaign will only run for 28 days, so think of March as the Month of Media Madness! Please follow, like, and share any and all of the social networking outlets that we have set up specifically for this campaign. The links for these outlets are below, and can be accessed through their respective icons.
