CROWDFUNDING FOR ROCK:
RockmaniaLive!™ Will Bring Authentic Multimedia
Experience to Generations of Rock Fans
StartEngine.com Campaign to Begin on September 30th
Los Angeles, CA – September 30, 2016 – Music-industry heavyweights Abbey Konowitch, Founder/Executive Producer (former record and television executive at MTV, Disney Music, and Madonna’s Maverick Records), Rob Cavallo, Executive Music Producer (Grammy Award winning producer of Green Day, Dave Mathews, Fleetwood Mac, and more), and Tommy Tallarico, Creative Director (creator of global phenomenon Video Games Live), have launched a unique crowdfunding venture that will be music to the ears of investors – RockmaniaLive!
Music fans will have an exciting opportunity to make their rock n’ roll dreams come true as they become equity-investors in this global music franchise and multimedia music experience beginning on September 30 at startengine.com/startup/rockmanialive.
Formed in mid-2015, RockmaniaLive! began with creating compositions of iconic classic rock songs with arrangements from Cavallo and the assistance of world-renowned composer, David Campbell. RockmaniaLive! features the best visual elements utilizing the latest technologies and creators. Music has been composed and recorded from such legendary classic rock artists as Led Zeppelin, The Who and Pink Floyd. Rehearsals, production, and full build-out of the show will occur in December 2016 with the first, live shows scheduled for 2017.
RockmaniaLive! will deliver the ultimate in rock symphonic performances of legendary classic rock albums (i.e. Dark Side of the Moon, Houses of the Holy, and Who’s Next) immersed in a multimedia environment. As these artists retire from touring, RockmaniaLive! will provide their millions of loyal fans with a unique, live concert experience, enhanced with state-of-the-art visual production elements.
“What makes this such a dynamic experience is that we’re actually replicating the technical aspects of the sound of the original bands by using similar equipment, such as amps, instruments, mixing boards and more,” says Cavallo. “The multimedia atmosphere and technical aspects of the sound will offer a genuine experience for generations of rock fans.” Similar to Cirque du Soleil or Blue Man Group, RockmaniaLive! is a scalable brand and production platform that supports simultaneous performances across multiple venues.
“Classic Rock era artists, music and albums have become global cultural brands, built the largest touring business in history, and have generated billions of dollars in merchandise, ticket and album sales,” adds Konowitch. “RockmaniaLive! is an opportunity for classic rock fans to continue to experience the ‘soundtrack of their lives’ and share it with their whole family in a unique and visceral way.”
“The time is right for a concept like RockmaniaLive!,” said legendary Kiss, Bon Jovi and Motley Crue Manager Doc McGhee. “RockmaniaLive! has pulled together a team of the top people who can create the best possible music arrangements and experience. Plus, the music of these classic rock artists is timeless – I look forward to seeing it.”
The crowdfunding campaign will be hosted on StartEngine.com for an estimated duration of 60 days.
