Rockers In Recovery
Will be Rockin' Penn's Landing!
        PRO-ACT is delighted to announce that the Rockers In Recovery All-Star Band will be entertaining us at our 13th Annual Walk on September 20 in Penn's Landing. They have RIR Band kindly added our Recovery Walk to their nationwide tour, which is already under way (call 877-799-8773 for further information or click here). The band's main purpose is to spread hope and love with the message that treatment for addiction and education, mixed with "having fun" in recovery, is indeed possible!
        The RIR All-Stars combine cream-of-the-crop musicians that are in recovery or support recovery. As pioneers of rock-and-roll recovery, they are creating a new image for rock and roll--not only is it alive and well, but alive and sober. By marching shoulder to shoulder through each moment of every Lou Esposito day they intend to let all people affected by addiction know it will get better. Through hope, love, and music, they work to heal.

        Among those performing with the Band will be Mark Bosch, Lead Guitar (Ian Hunter, The Rant Band, Garland Mark Bosch Jeffreys); Steve Holley, Drummer (Paul McCartney and Wings, Elton John, Joe Cocker); Lou Esposito, Vocals, Guitar (The Capris, Joe Walsh, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddly); and Paul Page, Bass (Ian Hunter, The Rant Band, John Cale, Dion). Each of them, with smiles on their faces, has a charismatic and genuine energy that comes from within their soul.

Recovery Idol Competition

        Round 4 of the Auditions is coming up on June 26, 12 noon, at the Community College of Philadelphia, 1700 Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia. Only a couple more auditions are left before the two finalists will perform on September 20 at PRO-ACT Recovery Walks! in Penn's Landing. We'll have judges there to select the winner, but your support of your favorite singer will definitely help their performances, Idol accompanied by the Recovery Idol Band.

        Recovery Idol was founded in 2011 by the Philadelphia Recovery Coalition to showcase the talent of persons in recovery and promote positive self image and self expression. Many of the competitors thought their lives were over before finding recovery. Said one competitor, "I was tired of hurting people. I didn't want to die and have my children say, 'If only she had quit.'" At 50 now, she added, "I'm only just beginning to live."
        The winner receives a plaque, studio recording time, and an opportunity to perform before tens of thousands of people.
