What is Our Goal?

Our goal has been the same since we got started way back in 2004 as AK Music Scene. We have always believed that the music scene in southwestern Pennsylvania provides the best music available today, and our goal is to get it out to the masses. We have so many ways for you to be introduced to it.

Reign of Z is asking for your help with their upcoming EP

Reign of Z began its journey in April of 2017 and since then has had the fortune of amazing experiences in the short time we’ve been together. We had the honor and privilege of playing the Shira Girl stage on the final Vans Warped Tour and were even able to co-headline the Whisky A Go-Go in LA with Black Valentine on the date Dysmorphia dropped. With your help, our story is just getting started. Next month we will be heading back into the studio to finish our debut EP, Mirrors and Memoirs, with Justin Spaulding at More Sound Studio. Justin was the master behind the console with Dysmorphia and we are ecstatic to return!

Rock for Life Concert Series 2018

The Rock for Life outdoor shows are just around the corner. This scene main stay has been providing support to sick children since 2000. Have you been to one of their shows?

It is the mission of Rock for Life to provide financial support to needy individuals residing in Western PA who are suffering from life threatening diseases. Rock for Life sponsors music festivals and other music-related and general fundraising events to raise the monies necessary to support its purpose.

While people on the outside see this as a rock concert, I and the people involved in it, see it for what it is. A family of musicians that not only love to play the shows, but do their best to support the children and families that the shows are put on for. It doesn’t end and the concerts. Band members visit the kids in the hospital, go to graduation parties and birthday parties, make prom wishes come true, and are some of the most loving people that you will meet.

Recipient(s) of support will be determined annually, utilizing selection criteria guidelines as adopted by the Directors. Financial support may be provided to a needy individual or a non-profit organization that supports the mission of Rock for Life.
