New York, NY (September 18, 2017) – The Path Fund Inc.® is pleased to announce the 24th Annual ROCKERS ON BROADWAY: LEGENDS LIVE ON! on Monday, November 13, 2017 at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleeker Street) at 8 p.m. ROCKERS ON BROADWAY, the original Broadway rock concert series, a fun unique charity event, featuring Broadway’s best rockin’ out with a live band. Proceeds to benefit Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS and non-profit performing arts education programs.
This year at ROCKERS ON BROADWAY: LEGENDS LIVE ON! we pay tribute to legendary musicians who have passed on. The greatest Rock & Roll band might be in heaven, but they continue to be the soundtrack of our lives and live on inspiring us with their music.
Directed by ROCKERS creator Donnie Kehr (Jersey Boys), and hosted by Broadway Sessions’ Ben Cameron (Wicked) and, the 24th Annual ROCKERS ON BROADWAY will feature performances by Tony Award nominated and award winning performers as well as some of Broadway’s current stars and ensemble members. Performers, special guests and other honorees will be announced soon.
Each year ROCKERS ON BROADWAY honors industry luminaries who have inspired and enhanced the community. This year, the Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Tony Award-winner Tom Viola, Executive Director for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights Aids.
Adds Viola: “Like best friends from the childhood, there are groups that come up and grow with you, side by side, who are both a marker and a great part of the foundation of any organization’s success. The PATH Fund and their eagerly anticipated, yearly event “Rockers on Broadway” are just such friends to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The good will that infuses their work that supports BC/EFA and arts education programs galvanizes the community year-round, long after the last power chord has played. BC/EFA is grateful for the longtime support of The PATH Fund and the enthusiastic generosity of spirit that Donnie Kehr and Cori Gardner bring to producing “Rockers on Broadway” each year. I am happy to be a part of a community of “performing artists that help” (PATH!) and honored to join them November 13th on stage at Le Poisson Rouge.”
