SARASOTA, FLA. — Last year’s inaugural Rock for a Cause was a tremendous success! This “battle-of-the-bands” style event showcased six bands who were whittled down through online voting. Last year’s winning band, Seven Years Past, was awarded $1,500 cash and chose Riverview High School’s music program to receive a $3,500 donation. The event attracted more than 2,000 attendees.
Now it’s time start thinking about this year’s submissions. Bands or solo musicians in Sarasota or surrounding counties can go to srqrocks.org/band-submissions and get instructions on how to provide two songs in audio or video format and fill out the bio form by Oct. 9, 2015. Rock for a Cause staff will contact each entrant to finish the application process. Public voting will run Oct. 12-23.
Rock for a Cause will be held on Nov. 21, from 1 to 8 p.m. at Payne Park in Sarasota. The event will include vendors, food, kids activities, giveaways, live music and more. Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are also available. Please visit the Event Sponsorship page.
