Rockin' for a Cure - Curing MS One Song at a Time at Rock & Roll After School

Rockin' for a Cure is an all ages event featuring three of Philly's most promising up and coming bands, HONOR, Phantasm and Rivers Monroe. Net proceeds raised at the event will be donated directly to the National MS Society, Greater Delaware Valley Chapter.

Rockin' for a cure will be held on December 4, 2010 at Rock and Roll After School, a unique venue located at 400 Franklin Avenue in Phoenixville, PA.

Rockin' for a Cure will feature live music, free food, raffles, door prizes and more! This is an event you will not want to miss!

We hope to raise at least $10,000 for the cause - curing Multiple Sclerosis - and will raise that and more with your help!

About the Bands
HONOR, Phantasm and Rivers Monroe are not going to be "local" for long - soon, they will be "big time" and heard on every radio station in America - seize this opportunity to hear them in an intimate setting, which is a memory you will cherish for a lifetime.

Honor is a hard rock 4 piece from the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. Taking pride in their ear-catching vocal melodies, heavy guitars and relentless backline, Honor is a band you won't forget once heard.

Phantasm creates loud rock mayhem and tight rhythms with cleverly executed outbursts of controlled chaos. This turn-on-a-dime style of rock also contains traces of math and jazz. The sound is paired with powerful yet delicate vocals and dark sarcastic lyrics. The three members are making the music they want to hear, unafraid to go with or against the grain depending on the moment.

Rivers Monroe is a high energy, pop-rock quintet that has recently completed their second full-length album “Meteors” after the successful and well-received release of their 'Electric Life' in 2009. With each member bringing their own distinct set of influences to the table, Rivers Monroe has become something different that can best be described by the music they create. Rivers Monroe ambitiously looks forward to touring and reaching as many ears as possible and creating a new and exciting niche in the world of music.

Local Business Spotlight: Manor of Hope

Manor of Hope is a long term residential addiction rehab support program for young men. Located in a beautifully renovated farmhouse on Egypt Road in Phoenixville, Manor of Hope is a state of the art drug and alcohol recovery community that offers long term treatment and continuing care for young men with substance abuse issues.

The owner/mastermind of the Manor of Hope, Steve Killelea, dealt with his own son's addiction problem for over 10 years. Steve tried to help his son and sent him to many places, only to have him relapse - until he decided to look outside the US and in Canada found a "therapeutic community" where his son John found sobriety. Their program model inspired both Steve and John to create their own version right here in Phoenixville.

They also have created the "Building Futures" program which partners with small local businesses to help mentor and teach the young men vocational skills. One of the current residents named Steve has been working …
