United Way of Summit County Seeks Musical Acts for Docs Who Rock
United Way of Summit County’s annual Docs Who RockTM physician talent show will be held at The University of Akron’s E.J. Thomas Hall on Saturday, October 20, 2012 beginning at 7:00 pm. Docs Who Rock has grown into a ‘can’t miss’ event for music lovers, and participants are thrilled at the opportunity to perform on the legendary E.J. Thomas Hall stage.
Because of growing interest from the region’s many talented musicians and singers, musical acts will be asked to submit an application and support materials by June 29, 2012 to United Way of Summit County, 90 N. Prospect Street, Akron, OH 44304. A committee of musical experts, led by Docs Who Rock co-founder Dr. Terry Gordon, will select participating artists based on the information and materials available to them, so the applications should contain as much of the following as possible: current CD, audio and/or video tapes; press reviews/articles; posters/flyers; and a one-paragraph description of the group or artist.
As in the past, musical acts must have at least one member who is a Doctor (M.D. or D.O.) and who lives or practices in Summit County. Solo acts are also welcome, and all musical styles are encouraged to apply
United Way of Summit County Vice President – Marketing & Communications Michael Gaffney said, “The evolution of this show over the years has been remarkable. From that first year in the 430-seat auditorium at the Main Library to this eagerly anticipated annual show that has played to crowds of between 1,500 and 2,000 people. So many people enjoy this show because it’s a way for them to get to know their doctors in a very different light, plus it’s just
a wonderfully entertaining night filled with great music and genuine humor.”
