The mission of the non-profit organization Rock To Recovery is “to transform lives via the powerful, healing, consoling experience of music.” Founded in late 2012 by former Korn guitarist Wesley Geer, the organization is committed to helping those in treatment and recovery by providing a constructive, creative outlet for patients through their music programs. Following a successful event at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles last year, Rock To Recovery will be returning to the Fonda on Saturday, Sept. 16 for a special benefit concert that will honor the work of Corey Taylor (Slipknot/ Stone Sour) and Wayne Kramer (MC5).
Those two artists will perform as part of the all-star band Kings of Chaos, which also includes 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). There will also be a performance from the Rock To Recovery Band, which features participants in the program jamming alongside members of bands like Korn, Sevendust and more. The event kicks off at 7pm with Red Carpet entrances and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets to this very special concert are now available right here on AXS.com.
One of the best things about Rock To Recovery is that the organization’s services are available to patients seeking help for a variety of issues, from PTSD to depression, alcoholism and drug addiction to cancer treatments. As Blabbermouth points out, “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.” Additionally, the non-profit arm donates proceeds to a wide variety of programs, including the Wounded Warrior Project, rehabilitation facilities, VA programs and organizations serving at-risk youth.
So whether you’re a fan of hard rock or simply want to help support a worthy organization, Rock To Recovery 2017 promises to be a memorable and uplifting concert. Click here to get your tickets to the show on Sept. 16 and watch a sizzle reel from last year’s event in the video embedded above.
