Rockin' Docs for Diabetes Cure
Rockin' Docs for Diabetes Cure
The 3rd annual Rockin’ Docs for Diabetes Cure is a benefit concert to support JDRF towards their mission to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes and its complications. JDRF is the worldwide leader for research to cure Type 1 diabetes and the largest charitable funder and advocate of diabetes science worldwide (and originated in Philadelphia!).

The concert features four established local bands, which include multiple doctor-musicians from several major hospital centers in the Philadelphia area (Abington Memorial Hospital, University of Pennsylvania Health System, Einstein Medical Center, Holy Redeemer Hospital, Aria Health, RWJ Hamilton and Doylestown Hospital). These doctors and musicians have all fully donated their time and talents and all profits from the concert go directly to JDRF.

Suzie Brown has been described in Philadelphia Magazine (Winner, Best of Philly for music talent 2010) as "bluesy, folky, achy, sweet-voiced.... she’s part Emmylou Harris, part Allison Krauss, and totally worth seeing." Blue Bizness (finalist in last year's Rock MD contest) is one of the finest blues bands in the area performing “high-energy blues rock and beyond, flavored with a dash of slide guitar, blues harmonica, and screamin' Fenders, served up on a bed of rock-solid rhythm.” Shadow Merchant (also a Rock MD finalist) draws upon their years of combined experience and influences (ranging from Rush, Kansas, Spock's Beard, Porcupine Tree, Yes, and Dream Theater to Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and more) to bring their unique brand of progressive rock to the music world. Rightback, returning by popular demand for the third year in a row, pick up from their days together back in 80s/90s playing Motown, R&B, and Classic Rock.
