The Kick-Off

On Wednesday, March 6th from 5‑7pm at Village Gate, Suite D218, all participants will be sorted into bands and get to know each other! We’ll also set up each band with an online donation page and guidelines for collaboration, managing gear, and making music together.

This gathering is mandatory in order to participate!

The Program

“Caregivers Rock Camp” offers a 10-week program for caregivers to connect, grow, and rock. Participants join bands, receive instrument instruction, and attend workshops, leading to a live performance before Mother's Day.

This empowering experience emphasizes self-care and reminds caregivers that their dreams matter. This adventure will culminate in our GR!R Caregivers Rock event at Waterstreet Music Hall on Saturday, May 11th From 1PM (Doors), 1:30–3:30PM (Show)
