Pittsburgh Blues and Roots Festival

Proceeds benefit the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Band Together Pittsburgh, a community-based nonprofit that uses the power of music to enrich the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. "This event is not only exciting and fun, but the money raised helps the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Band Together Pittsburgh continue providing musical opportunities to persons on the spectrum through our Autism Open Mic ", says Jesse Torisky, Esquire, President of the Autism Society of Pittsburgh.

Ron Esser and musician John Vento are founders of Band Together Pittsburgh, the force behind the Pittsburgh Blues and Roots Festival. Vento states, “The highlight of this wonderful event is witnessing the performances and contributions by those on the autism spectrum.”

To quote a visitor at last year’s Festival: “What a wonderful event! Fantastic music, great venue and good people. Hopefully, this is the start of a new yearly tradition.” We can confirm, it is.
