For many of us, the memories of our college days reverberate around listening to classic rock in the dorm or going to music fests. As the world needs a lot of healing these days, we plan to leverage our love for classic rock to help humanity.
The 1985 Live Aid concert was conceived as a follow-on to the successful charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” which was also the brainchild of Geldof and Ure. Rock for Charity II is the continuation of the initiative of Prometheus Foundation and IIT Alumni of Greater Houston (IITAGH) to enjoy a fantastic evening of classic rock while raising funds for charity with focus on children and education.
This year’s Rock for Charity II concert on April 23rd at the Cullen Theater at Wortham Center will be headlined by a motley crew of musicians:
Dr. Subrata Ghosh of Houston’s Horizon Fusion Band, his bandmate Rajesh Bose, an engineer and erstwhile guitarist of Chandrabindoo, the numero uno band of Eastern India, and the rising rockstar Ritwik Bhattacharya of the Bangalore-based Happy Rock band, Aathma, burning up the rock scene in India, Mukul Singhee, ex-IITian, versatile musician and winner of numerous college fest awards, and last but not the least, Jeff Stocki, the killer bassist from good ole Texas.
All proceeds will be contributed to two excellent charities, doing super work in the area of children and education:
Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation USA: ekal.org/
On a mission to bring basic education to every child across rural India.
The Arc of Fort Bend County: arcoffortbend.org/
Advocacy, support and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
Please be there on Sunday, April the 23rd., 2017 at the fabulous Wortham Center for a memorable evening of classic rock from Jeff Beck to Pink Floyd with fabulous East-West fusion in between and all that for a great cause – charities for children and education.
Help Humanity, Rock for Charity!
