“The patients we serve know they can count on us for a smiling face and an uplifting tune.”—Pete Griffin, President, Musicians On Call

When he joined MOC, Pete opened a Rapid Rewards® Credit Card for the organization, allowing the team to earn points, redeem travel, and create opportunities in new cities for patients, families, and caregivers. Musicians On Call has reached more than 600,000 people in adult facilities, children’s hospitals, VA hospitals, and hospices, but to reach millions more, Pete and his team are investing in technology to directly connect musicians to the hospitals they serve. Thank you, Pete. Your work is music to our ears!

Checking In “I work hard to stay in touch because you never know when you might work with a person again, or be in a position to help each other’s businesses.”


On the Fly “A lot of travel I do with Musicians On Call has last minute changes. No other airline gives us the flexibility we need like Southwest.”


Dream Team “You can have a great mission and the best plan, but if you don’t have the right people, it simply won’t come together.”
