Reverb.com has announced the Girls Rock Reverb Gives Auction, a partnership with some of the biggest names in music to auction off music gear, records, memorabilia and more for charity. The auction launches May 21, with proceeds benefiting 10 nonprofits dedicated to empowering female, transgender and gender non-conforming youth through music.
Among the items that will be up for auction on Reverb is a Sennheiser microphone and several records autographed by Stevie Nicks. Fans can also bid on a Fender ukulele signed by Billie Eilish, a pair of Hurley sneakers worn by Joan Jett on tour, an Oscar Schmidt autoharp used and signed by Nancy Wilson of Heart, a pair of drumsticks used on tour and signed by Shakira, an Epiphone amplifier owned by Tegan and Sara, an LP hand-painted by Alison Mosshart, an Epiphone electric guitar used by the Indigo Girls, an Ernie Ball electric guitar used by Kimbra and a show poster signed by Bonnie Raitt and James Taylor.
The auction will also feature signed memorabilia from Kacey Musgraves, Mavis Staples, Dolly Parton, Patti Smith, Lita Ford, Ani DiFranco and Kelly Clarkson.
Said Linda Perry, who donated a signed acoustic guitar gifted to her by Natasha Bedingfield, “I want young girls to know that there are so many ways that they can contribute to the music industry. They can be producers, writers, CEOs and managers. There are very powerful positions in the business that need to be filled by powerful young women.”
Of the guitar, Perry said, “It has written many songs all over the country and in different parts of the world. I hope the energy inspires someone to write something incredible.”
