October 14, 2005 at 6:44 AM (PT)
Performances by SISTER HAZEL, COWBOY MOUTH, EMERSON HART, MICHAEL TOLCHER, GAELIC STORM, THERESA ANDERSSON, ARI HEST, FRANCISCO VIDAL and SCOTT MUNNS drew over 1000 fans to THE ROCK BOAT reunion weekend at the ROCK FOR RELIEF - HURRICANE KATRINA benefit concert on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1st at EARTHLINK LIVE and VINYL in ATLANTA. More than $55,000 was raised from ticket sales, t-shirt sales, a silent auction, ICEHOUSE beer sales and an AIRTRAN ticket raffle.
ROCK FOR RELIEF was a response to the cancellation of THE ROCK BOAT ’05. THE ROCK BOAT, an annual music festival at sea, was scheduled to depart from NEW ORLEANS on SEPTEMBER 29th. In light of the recent HURRICANE KATRINA disaster, the multi-day cruise festival had to be cancelled. Guests who were booked on the SEPTEMBER cruise now have the option to transfer to THE ROCK BOAT VI, which is scheduled to depart from GALVESTON, TX on JANUARY 14, 2006.
