Sponsorship opportunities

Sponsorship is a critical component of RME’s success. Sponsorships of our programs and events help us complete our musical mission every day by transforming lives in the Quad Cities through music.

Businesses and individuals can be a part of our musical mission by sponsoring one of our programs, concerts or special events. So many of our programs are only possible through support of the business community.

Please contact Alex Burkamper for more information about sponsorship opportunities by phone at (563)326-1333 ext. 107 or by email at

Below, you'll see a snapshot of sponsorship opportunities we offer.

Friday Live@Five

Live@Five is our FREE summer concert series that is for the whole family. From 5-8pm most Fridays in June through September, Live@Five-Crowd.jpghundreds of community members hang out in our courtyard to listen to the best local and regional bands around. Live@Five has become a staple of downtown Davenport, and it just keeps growing.

If you want to support a night of FREE music for our whole community while promoting your business or brand, please contact Alex Burkamper at or at (563)326-1333 ext. 107 to learn more.



Educational Programs


Students ages 8-18 participate in workshops with professional musicians, form a band with their peers & learn their favorite songs (and some even write their own!), and end the two-week camp with a concert in the Redstone Room for all their friends and families.
It’s incredible what these students can accomplish in two weeks. Some come in barely able to sing a note and end the camp by belting out their favorite song or shredding a guitar solo for a cheering crowd.

Much like Kidstock, students ages 8-18 participate in workshops from professional musicians and form a band with their peers, but there is an increased focus on learning about blues and improvisation.

qc-times-14.jpgLet’s Band Together

RME refurbishes donated instruments of all kinds and loans them to students in need. Every student should be able to experience the joy of playing music, and that’s why Let’s Band Together exists.

River Currents Tours

RME blends history and a music lesson together, using the Mississippi River as a guide, to teach students about the evolution of American roots music. This is always an engaging experience students never forget.
