If you can dream of a better world, you can make it happen. For Alfonso D'Niscio Brooks and Ewart Jr Burton, the driving force behind Rockers Movement , turning that dream into reality has become a vocational signature.
Through the universal language of music, as well as the arts and cultural media, they have tapped into the social consciousness to uplift the spirit and inspire people to give of themselves to help make the world a better place in which to live. Alfonso says: Rockers Movement is organic in its ideals and execution. Trust and trace-ability. Our approach coincides with the message of having a better and healthier planet.
Rockers Movement produce a series of entertaining and fun-filled music/arts events around the world, all custom-tailored for the enjoyment of families and individuals of all ages and musical tastes. These masterful events feature multiple headliner acts, as well as some of the world's most promising up-and-coming talent. Music, art, yoga, fashion, technology and food from around the world provide the backdrop to a truly amazing cultural experience.
But it takes more than great music to turn the dream of a better world into a reality. That's why proceeds from Rockers Movement events are donated to established non-profit organizations in areas of education, health, wellness, environmental awareness, social justice, to fight poverty, house the homeless and feed the hungry in the US and abroad. In fact, patrons are asked to bring at least two items of non-perishable food as a part of the cost of admission.
Changing the world for the better is an ongoing process in which Rockers Movement is proud to be a part. But perhaps the greatest gift we can offer people and ourselves – is the empowerment that comes from knowing you can make a difference, and that we are in fact, making a difference.
