Rock for Love 4 { The Line-up }

The line-up for this year's Rock for Love benefit concert is welcoming some great newcomers, making for a set so great it needs 4 shows to pack it in. They have a day show for all ages that I know Atticus will be happy about. {I also love the poster design this year designed by Sasha Barr who's designed the posters every year.} See the line-up and concert information below and stay tuned for interviews with some of the musicians playing this year.

Since its founding in 2007, Rock for Love has been produced in partnership with Makeshift Music as a way to raise money for the Center and celebrate the diversity of Memphis music with performances by some of the city’s best bands and artists.

Infolexa will host the Rock for Love 4 silent auction at auction.infolexa.com. The auction will go live on Aug. 1 and close at midnight on Aug. 21. The Memphis Roller Derby will host a merchandise table with a variety of CDs, T-shirts, records and other merchandise available for purchase, all to benefit the Center. The Hi Tone will also have a beer garden in the back.

Rock for Love 4 is presented by SunTrust, Elvis Presley Enterprises and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare. Other sponsors include Memphis Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, Sun Studio, Memphis Grizzlies, Ardent Studios, Traphix Entertainment, Makeshift Music, the Hi Tone, Shangri-La Records, 2 Chicks and a Broom, Dental Implant Aesthetic Center, Sasha Barr / The New Year, Memphis Flyer, Miller/Coors, Live From Memphis, Rocket Science Audio, B.B.

Many of the uninsured working people served by the Center are working musicians. Lucero’s drummer, Roy Berry, who was injured on a recent tour, says he’s glad to be playing Rock for Love this year.

“I've been treated well by the Church Health Center,” Berry said. “They definitely provide a valuable service to the community, which includes helping me recently when my jaw was broken. Having recovered, it's nice to be able to play the Rock for Love benefit and be able give something back to help the service continue for other folks who need it.”

In conjunction with Rock for Love 4, Revolutions Community Bicycle Shop will host The Rock and Roll Revolution Bike Ride, a bike ride that will pass by iconic sites of Memphis rock and roll significance. The ride will begin and conclude at Shangri-La Records, just in time for the start of the RFL 4 Day Party. The ride is for ages 12 and up, and there is no cost to participate. To RSVP, e-mail revolutionsbikeshop@gmail.com.
