EyeRockers to Perform Tonight for New Eyes for the Needy


NEW YORK—When the EyeRock Band hits the stage at the Hard Rock Café in Times Square at 9:00 p.m. tonight, it will be the culmination of months of work and preparation that organizers of the show said has been well worth the effort.

“We’ve had a fantastic response for the benefit concert and we want to thank all of our sponsors who are making this a successful event,” said Jean Gajano, executive director of New Eyes for the Needy, the non-profit organization that is the beneficiary of the Eyerock concert. “We are delighted to know we will be able to offer prescription eyeglasses to even more people in need as a result of the success of the event. The evening is so popular that tickets for the show have actually sold out!”

New Eyes’ goal is to raise awareness of their programs and to significantly increase the number of adults and children in the U.S. who benefit from this program.

The EyeRock Band is comprised of musicians from throughout the optical industry. “The EyeRock Band, which began 15 years ago as a music jam with just a handful of musicians, has grown to over 35 musicians and singers,” noted EyeRock Band producer Steve Santinelli of Santinelli International. “The concert will be recorded and footage and photos will be available on the band’s website, www.eyerockband.com. We’re looking forward to coming together and playing for such a great cause. The band is delighted to be partnering with New Eyes—it’s a fantastic organization whose programs help so many disadvantaged people.”
