Rock by the Sea

Published

on

Musical artists Will Turpin and The Way and Amy Gerhartz are joining forces for a charity concert in support of pediatric cancer research and treatment.

Rock By The Sea, an organization that raises money for worthwhile causes through music, will present the star‐studded
holiday benefit concert at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, at Vinyl, 1374 Peachtree St., Atlanta.
A portion of the proceeds ($10 a ticket) will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer
Hospital in Orlando, Fla.
Turpin, co‐founder of the multi‐platinum group Collective Soul, contributed the
William Dix Classic “What Child Is This?” to the October release of A Rock By The
Sea Christmas: Volume Three, a charity CD series of Christmas classics and original
tunes. He said the holiday season is best celebrated by finding ways to give back to
the community.
“I’m a very traditional person at heart. Celebrating Christmas was a time I looked
forward to as a kid, and even more so now that I have children of my own,” Turpin
said. “Lending my name and support to fighting pediatric cancer is simply my way of
giving back and showing gratitude.”
Gerhartz, who contributed a song to Rock By The Sea’s 2011 charity compilation, is an Atlanta‐based singer/songwriter
who has opened for several national acts. Her music blends acoustic pop, rock, folk and soul. The bill also includes
Lauren St. Jane and the Dead Westerns, Steve Everett, Echo Collection, Travis Denning and other musical guests. All of
the artists are available for interviews and appearances to promote the CD and show.
“Cancer happens to everyone. Parents, siblings, spouses, children, friends; cancer is ubiquitous and permeates the
fabric that binds us together as human beings. It’s personal,” said Tod Elmore, Rock By The Sea board member and CD
and show producer. “Coincidentally, cancer, or rather the fight against it, has the ability to unite us as one, as does
music.”
Rock By The Sea is dedicated to planning and producing music festivals, events and products that raise money to
financially assist deserving cancer charities that provide direct services to those in need. For more information visit

Second Chance Warming Shelter is located at 271 Marietta Rd in Canton, GA inside Action Church. The Warming Shelter was started three years ago out of need because there is no Homeless Shelter in Cherokee County. When temps drop below 32 degrees, the City of Canton allows Action Church to open their doors to those in need. They feed them, give them a warm bed and provides Toiletries and Warm Clothing. Last year Action Church with the HELP of Fundraisers like “Run For Cover” was able to Shelter 350 men, women and children.

On Saturday, June 27th, local attorneys exchanged their suits and ties for jeans and guitars as the 6th Annual LawJam took place at Variety Playhouse.

The annual event pits attorneys against each other, but this time the music stated the case and music industry professionals were the judges. Seven Atlanta lawyer bands took part as LawJam 2015 raised money for Atlanta Bar Foundation causes.

The rocking lawyers competed for the title of Best Band and Best Original Song. After a night of music and dance, the Electric Bonfires were named Best Band. “Big Sleep Lies” by the Kevins was named Best Original Song and the band won a one day recording session at Tree Sound Studios.

The judges for the evening were Kaedy Kiely, of 97.1 The River radio; Josh Rifkind, Songs for Kids Foundation and Barry Selvedge of Prime Point Media as well as audience members. The Emcee and host of the evening’s festivities was Burt Reeves.
