Los Angeles, March 2, 2015 – Law Rocks USA., the nonprofit organization that hosts a series of epic fundraising concerts comprised entirely of bands made up of legal professionals, will be kicking off its U.S. concert series this coming March 6th and 13th in Los Angeles.
In its fourth consecutive year, the concert will serve to promote various local nonprofit organizations represented by each band from several law firms around Los Angeles. Taking place at the historic Whisky a Go Go venue on Sunset Strip, these legal professionals by day will let their hair down by rocking out for the real rock stars, the local nonprofit organizations. The venue is well-renowned as the concert site of some of the biggest bands in rock history including Motley Crüe, Alice Cooper, The Doors, Neil Diamond, and Guns ‘N Roses to name a few,
“When we started Law Rocks in L.A. four years ago, we never expected it to grow so rapidly,” Ted Scott, co-founder of Law Rocks USA, commented. “We are thrilled about the success of the U.S. concerts and are excited to be a part of this global organization as it continues to evolve and raise more money for the local charities.”
After seeing success from the first event in London 2009, Law Rocks brought the event to the United States in 2012. The “Battle of the Bands” format provides an opportunity for the legal community in cities around the nation to bring attention and funding to deserving local nonprofits. The winning band is selected by three factors: donations raised, judge’s score, and audience favorite. All the proceeds from the event are shared across all charities being represented, with the winning band’s designated charity receiving the largest donation of the night.
As an organization, Law Rocks has raised over US$500,000 to various nonprofits across the globe. The Los Angeles concert is the inaugural stop for 2015 Law Rocks U.S. Tour, continuing afterwards to three additional U.S. locations and four European stops.
