Rockers With A Cause was created in 2009 by Edward Fernald. Celebrating his band's (Locomotive/Jesus Chrysler) 20-year reunion, Edward decided to pull together other bands from the local music scene to help celebrate the milestone. The reunion was all about getting old friends together, sharing memories of "the good 'ole days.” When Edward and the bands decided to donate the reunion show proceeds to a worthy charity, RWAC was born.
Since then, RWAC has produced at least one show a year, donating ALL proceeds ($7,000 so far!) to worthy local charities. RWAC hopes to continue to grow and raise awareness for worthy causes and charities using music as a tool to bring people together.
The RWAC mission is to help non-profit charities raise funds and awareness to help those in need. RWAC organizes and promotes musical events and fund raisers. Many of the artists donate their time knowing that helping others in need is the greatest compensation one could hope for.
