Stand Up Now
In 2007, Royal Tribe Music successfully hosted “Stand Up Now”. The tour was supported by the City of Pittsburgh, former Chief Executive Dan Onorato, and Mayor Luke Ravenstahl. The S.U.N. Tour promotes positive progressive urban arts and addresses a wide range of social concerns. In sum, the S.U.N. Tour brings a diverse range of residents together to build healthy community relationships, and promotes the urban environment as a great place to live for all residents.
