"Our next Rockin' The Rez fundraiser: To Be Announced

ABOUT "ROCKIN' THE REZ"

“Rockin The Rez’ ” is an annual benefit concert establ-

ished as a means of raising money for, and bringing 

attention to, deprived native reservations across 

America.


IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT "ROCKIN' THE REZ" IS 

NOT NECESSARILY "A NATIVE EVENT", RATHER, "AN 

EVENT FOR A NATIVE CAUSE".


November, 2010, brought many concerned individuals 

to the grounds of the Chumash Indian museum 

(Thousand Oaks, CA), where the very first concert 

was held for the Lakota people of the Pine Ridge 

reservation (South Dakota).  The event had several 

talented musicians perform, including artists from 

Hawaii and New York, who heard about the event 

and wanted to help.


To date, the event has brought onstage, the two time 

NAMMY award winning Gray Wolf Blues band, the very 

talented sound of “Outlaw and the Soul Strings”, the 

folkadelic “Joee Corso band”, the incredible “No Duh”, 

a fantastic “No Doubt” tribute band and the ever so 

popular musical group “The Main Ingredient”, featur-

ing Cuba Gooding Sr.


Proceeds from the concerts have gone to help pro-

vide propane for families on the Pine Ridge reser-

vation, to help get them through the harsh South 

Dakota winters.  But our goal is to be able to provide 

much more than that and to spill over to other 

reservations as well.
