Rockers For Knockers Call For Musicians and Bands

The Music Initiative, in conjunction with This Is Noteworthy {tin}, joins forces with Rockers for Knockers, Inc. to co-produce music for the third annual Rockers 4 Knockers event on Sunday, October 13 on Shem Creek. This year anticipates being “the Breast year ever” as the musicians selected to play will have a tie to the disease itself. The Music Initiative/ This Is Noteworthy will produce a live-to-tape version of the popular local music television program Eclectic Evenings from the event. Participating bands will have the opportunity to play a 45-minute to an hour-long set each between noon and 5pm on the day of the event, and be featured in an individual video segment as part of this special Eclectic Evenings broadcast.
