The 5th annual Music for All Ball was a blast!
Hosted by guest emcee Jammin’ Jessie of Radio 104.5, Philly musicians teamed up with Rock to the Future students to play one-of-a-kind collaborations in the historic Painted Bride’s Old City theater. Everyone enjoyed awesome food and drink from honeygrow, Bota Box, Original XII Ciderworks, and Sterling Pig Brewery, plus hit up the selfie station and scored some unique auction prizes – all while supporting music education!
The 90-minute variety show featured classic covers and original songs by hip hop artist Chill Moody, Rogers Stevens of iconic alt-rock band Blind Melon, Domenic Palermo of shoegaze band NOTHING, and orchestral psych-folk outfit Grandchildren, plus a special VIP performance by jazz and blues musician Christopher Davis-Shannon.
Rock to the Future’s awesome supporters blew our fundraising goal away – the Music for All Ball raised over $47,000 to support music education at RTTF. The generosity of our supporters means that hundreds of underserved Philadelphia kids and teens will have access to free and affordable music education in 2018 – and that rocks!
Thank you to our supporters, sponsors, and attendees! We’re already looking forward to next year’s ball.
