Rockin’ for Rett

This can be something you host at a restaurant/bar, all the way to a formal sit-down event. You can have a DJ, just one musician, a band, two bands or have a battle of the bands. The entire purpose for a Rockin’ for Rett event is to get your family, friends and supporters together, throw in some great music and maybe a raffle and have FUN! No matter what venue you decide on, this event is sure to be ROCKIN’!
