'Rock To Recovery 2' Benefit Concert To Honor COREY TAYLOR, WAYNE KRAMER
August 4, 2017
Rock To Recovery, a transformative program for those in treatment and recovery, has announced its second annual awareness event and benefit on Saturday, September 16 at 6 p.m., at the famous Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, California. Rock to Recovery 2 - Benefit Concert will honor the work of Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR) and Wayne Kramer (MC5) and will be a rock-star-studded concert headlined by KINGS OF CHAOS featuring Taylor, Kramer, Matt Sorum (GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER, THE CULT),Rob DeLeo (STONE TEMPLE PILOTS),Steve Stevens (BILLY IDOL),and Frankie Perez (SCARS ON BROADWAY, APOCALYPTICA),a performance by the Rock To Recovery Band comprised of musicians from KORN, SEVENDUST, SNOT, D.I., DEATH ON WEDNESDAY, KILL RADIO and KUT U UP, as well as some very special surprise celebrity guests.
Former KORN guitarist Wesley Geer founded Rock To Recovery on December 12, 2012, in an effort to give non-musicians access to the magic, healing powers of playing music, and advance the use of music expression groups in various treatment settings. In each session, program participants form a band, write a song together, and record their work, offering an uplifting, therapeutic release to patients recovering from PTSD, alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, cancer treatments and more, by organically helping improve body/brain chemistry by stimulating the natural release of serotonin, dopamine, endorphins, and oxytocin. Rock To Recovery typically operates as an adjunct service to a treatment center's curriculum, and in just four years, the program has grown to become an integral part of the weekly treatment curriculum for nearly eighty programs.
Rock To Recovery's non-profit entity donates its services to the U.S. Department of Defense's Wounded Warriors program, state-funded programs and indigent rehabs like the Salvation Army and Clare Foundation, programs for at-risk youths including Turning Point and North County Lifeline, as well as Breath of Heaven, and local VA programs including New Directions for Veterans and the Brentwood VA.
Prior to the inception of these annual concerts, Rock To Recovery has been entirely self-funded. Due to the program's success and subsequent demand, coupled with the overwhelming successes of last year's event, the organization will continue to grow its reach through these annual fundraising celebrations in order to bring the healing power of music to more people. Ticket information is available at Fondatheatre.com or AXS.com. Purchase tickets by phone by calling AXS at (888) 929-7849.
The event, which is being sponsored by New Vista Behavioral Health, Pacific Palms and Luminance Recovery, will be an excellent opportunity to celebrate Rock To Recovery's current work, learn more about the program and celebrate its successes, as well as support its goals for future action.
