The final WORD on Rock For Rescues… rain, an electric atmosphere and $7k raised…

Posted Jun 27, 2013 in News

Well kids, was that a ROCK show or what???? Rock for Rescues is in the books and in every way, it was an amazing success… It was a massive labor of love, all starting late last summer with a few comments about finding a way to get a few of us to play a show together…. it came a long way…

R4R was the perfect storm – quite literally – of great things coming together on Saturday. Despite the rain, a TON of peeps came out to sing, dance and scream their heads off to three of the hottest bands Vermont had to offer in the goodness of the Abbey’s covered venue. There aren’t really words to describe all that went down, so check out the pics & captions to view the day.

Huge thanks are in order to Pat Ashton/Vermont Concert Connections for pulling Yeoman’s duty in organizing and managing a flawless event – the dogs and cats will always appreciate your work Patrick; Scott Guptill, Todd Fournier and all of the others who worked relentlessly recruiting sponsors and managing the logistics of the event – well done gents; Chris LaRocque/Audionx for their tremendous production for the event; we never looked or sounded better; all of the sponsors, including JC Image, WCAX, the Abbey Group, Peoples Trust, Jolley stores, Hartigan, Pet Food Warehouse, Champlain Valley Tent Rentals, Handy Cars, Got That Rentals & Sales, St. Albans Co-op Dairy and more than I’m sure to have missed who supported the event; and lastly all of you who attended and got what this was all about – without you, it doesn’t happen and two very deserving agencies have $7000 less in funds to help dogs and cats in need – THANK YOU!

So a very extended batch of pics are below, but for the complete sets, hit the links from the various photographers who were there to document the show…
