In 2009 rock and metal internet radio DJ’s and brothers Jay Scorpion and Turbo, who have Spinal Muscular Atrophy (a neuromuscular disease under the category of Muscular Dystrophy) started the fundraising group known as Rock Against Dystrophy to bring awareness to the masses and fundraise for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They unite the worlds of rock and metal together three times a year for benefit concerts in their effort to “Rock Out to Knock Out Muscular Dystrophy.”
This summer marks Rock Against Dystrophy’s third year of benefit concerts in New Jersey and it’s second with an All Star line up. This years New Jersey benefit will be taking place on Saturday, August 22nd at New Jersey’s rock and metal haven Dingbatz in Clifton, New Jersey.
This years Rock Against Dystrophy All Stars will once again feature Mark Tornillo (ACCEPT/T.T. QUICK) and Bobby Blitz (OVERKILL) with more to be announced in the coming weeks. The MC for the event, returning for his 3rd time, will be TattooTony of Under My Skin Tattoo.
Proceeds from Rock Against Dystrophy events go to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
