Rock by the Sea, Inc. is dedicated to organizing music festivals and events to raise money to assist deserving charities who provide direct services to those in need. Every Rock by the Sea event is an intimate showcase of music designed to bring people together for the love of music and the common goal of helping these charities.
Rock by the Sea is led completely by volunteers, has no employees. It is a community, a family…of volunteers, musicians, charities and fans of music who travel from all over the country to attend these events. All donating their time, talents and dollars in pursuit of making a difference while having a GREAT time. Over 38 states have been represented and just over 80 bands and singer/songwriters have participated in our events or contributed to one of the seven Christmas CDs we have produced. Each event is about more than just the charity. Its about discovering your new favorite band and hanging out with them. Its about talking to people or their parents who have benefited from our efforts. Its about making new friends and bringing your old ones into a community of some pretty fantastic people and talent you don’t get to hear on the radio anymore. It does the soul some good. Everyone is happy to be at the event, happy to be a part of it and happy to be able to help.
