Rock-N-Roll Hall Of Fame Member Using Music To Heal
My name is Lou Esposito...I know, Hi Lou... If you ask the question, what has RIR meant to me ?
It all started back in 2012 when I got invited to play at the 2nd annualRockers In Recovery Music Festival I saw lots of people, lots of very friendly people. I did sets on Friday, andSaturday. and everything went great.
What I found that really impressed me was the honesty, and willingness of the people to talk about their journey down a dark road, and their struggle back again. There were lots of smiling, and laughing people, dancing in the grass, singing, and just having a wonderful time at a clean and sober event.I was floored at what I had witnessed.
The concept of a musical event for people to enjoy, along with speakers to educate the community and addiction professionals onsite for people who might want to get help, was all positive. I came home from that event on a natural high. As RIR musical director we have now years later gone on to produce 20 addiction prevention and awareness concerts/festivals across the united states.Read More .
