It’s simple. The media perpetuates lies and misinformation. We take musicians to Israel so they can have real information. That information is received just by going to Israel and seeing for themselves what Israel really looks like. Most importantly, they get to perform for an audience in Israel, comprised of different races, religions, genders and orientations. In short, they get to perform for people who wanna rock! It is this experience that musicians can then form their own, educated, opinion instead of just being informed by a lying media that, for some reason, thinks it is ok for innocent civilians to be attacked and for there to be no repercussions for that unprovoked attack.
We stand with Israel and their right to defend themselves against individuals that want to kill those people that wanna rock. The fans. The people of Israel. We await for Israel to fully open up so all our musicians, who have open minds, who want to see for themselves, can come to perform in Israel, safely and for all those fans that just wanna rock! We are cumin’! Rock on!
These are strange but exciting times. We have been working on merch and shwag for you guys since June. We had so many requests for these things that we had to figure out a way to make it happen. Fortunately, we were able to get designs made and get the ball rolling. Unfortunately, there were so many hiccups and delays, due to Covid, that the process was annoyingly slow.
As of this writing, we are happy to say that some items have come in and others are in various stages of arrival. What is available now are Guitar Picks, Stickers, T-shirts, Long Sleeve shirts, Phone Wallets (for the back of your phones), Bags and Sweatbands.
We are still waiting for Hats, Patches and Gaitors and are looking into a couple other cool specialty items. Images have been posted on Instagram (@rock4israel) of the in-stock items. A page will be set up soon to be able to donate and receive these various items.
It’s crazy that it’s taken this long. It’s also crazy that the 2020 tour we had in the works had to get postponed and will hopefully occur in 2021. It’s all a very fluid situation and we are just rolling along with it.
Thank you for believing and for all your support during these unusual times. Thank you for your donations. Keep ’em coming. Can’t wait to see you on the road! Rock on!!
After a brief hiatus Rock4Israel is back in full force. While we have constraints, due to Covid 19, we are preparing to be ready to go Israel as soon as they open up and it’s safe to do so. Feel free to donate, at anytime, to help accomplish that goal.
Additionally, during the hiatus, we created a whole bunch of merch and shwag. We should be receiving Rock4Israel Guitar Picks, Sweatbands, Stickers, Phone Wallets, T-shirts, Hats, Patches and, of course Masks and Gaitors that will all be available on this site in the coming weeks.
Finally, so many great musicians have passed away since we last posted. However, arguably two of the most prominent, and most influential, rock musicians in the history of rock must be noted. Neil Peart, the drummer and lyricist from RUSH and Eddie Van Halen passed away in 2020. Their contributions to music and the whole world aren’t even quantifiable. Their influence is, and was, so enormous and they are sorely missed.
Here’s to a rocking’ 2021 in the Holy Land. Spread the word! #Rock4Israel
