World MS Day is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness about MS and strengthen the network of people living with MS across the world. The theme in 2017 will be ‘Life with MS’ and we will be focusing on the quality of life for people with MS and those close to them.
Join us for a fun musical competition between local youth bands who are participating in the Academy of Musical Performers (AMP) program as we all join in on World MS Day to celebrate global solidarity and hope for the future.
Rock For MS will be held on Wednesday May 30, 2018 at the Westfield Palm Desert from 6-9pm and is FREE to the public.
4 AMP Bands will participate in a fun, friendly competition in 3 categories:
Creative Costume Design as a Band
Band That Can Create the Most Crowd Participation; and
Band with Best Stage Performance.
The event will be hosted by a local emcee and panel of 5 desert celebrities to commentate similar toan American Idol/The Voice panel. Each band will be given a color to identify them during the audience voting process. The audience will have the opportunity – for a small requested donation of $10 – to select swag bags that will contain 4 colored paddles to use in voting for their favorite band in each category. College of the Desert KCOD Youth Radio Station DJ’s will promote and entertain the audience. It will be an evening of fun for the entire family!
