Online Staff Report
First Northern Credit Union and Lou Bachrodt Auto Mall continue their community commitment by bringing you the “Support the Rock” event.
The month of March is “Music In Our Schools” Month, so local bands and artists are asked to come to Lou Bachrodt Auto Mall at 7070 CherryVale N. Blvd. and play acoustic sets to show the community the talented people Rockford has.
Bands/artists are scheduled throughout the day. So far, the list includes: Kristian Lykken, Laughing with Lauren, Broken Motion, Case In Point and more to come.
“This is a great opportunity for local bands to show the community and The X what they have to offer while raising money to support Rockford schools,” says Jon Pick, district manager of Financial Sales/Service with First Northern Credit Union. “It’s truly amazing what happens when a community comes together and supports their local talent, and this is just the start.”
Cash donations will be accepted and donated to District 205’s music department. WXRX will give away tickets throughout the day, including a pair of tickets to see Van Halen at the All State Arena on April 1.
WXRX will be broadcasting live from the event, which gives local bands/artists an opportunity to be heard. Be sure to stop by the First Northern table for a special offer.
