Rock n Roulette Fundraiser

She Rock She Rock is excited to present our fourth annual Rock n Roulette; a fundraising event that will help you form a new band, write new songs, and play in a virtual showcase, all while fundraising on behalf of the organization!

Women, trans and nonbinary musicians, and supporters will register (for free!) to be put into a fundraising band. SR2 staff members will then place everyone who registers into bands based on genre/music preferences, etc. You will then get four weeks to write an original song and one cover song! And of course, you will also fundraise for She Rock She Rock! Each band will get their own fundraising page that they can easily edit and customize to spread the word about the organization with the goal to raise $500 each.

FAQ

Who can participate in Rock n Roulette?
Rock n Roulette is open to women, trans and nonbinary musicians, ages 19 and over.  You do not have to have past experience participating in She Rock She Rock programs to participate in Rock n Roulette! This year, we will have two ways to participate in Rock n Roulette! The first way is to sign up as a band member and be put in a band! The second way is to sign up as a band supporter (non-musicians welcome!). Both roles will be expected to fundraise for a band!

The final show will be open to anyone in the community who wants to support the amazing bands that will be formed!

What is a band supporter?
This role is for folks who want to help fundraise with a band but who are not musicians or don't have as much time to be placed in a band. A band supporter will be assigned to one band and their role will be to fundraise with the band, support the band on their fundraising efforts and be the band's fan!!!

Do I have to fundraise to participate?
Yes! Each band will have a goal of $500, and we promise that it's not that scary! We have a great website that your band will be able to use to fundraise. 

Why do you need us to fundraise?
She Rock She Rock is able to provide our empowering programs through the generosity of several donors each year. You will be able to connect us to even more awesome donors which will help us do even more empowering programs, workshops, and events.

Do I have to own an instrument to participate in Rock n Roulette?

You do not, this year Rock n Roulette will take place entirely online. All you need is a computer with a stable internet connection!

Do I have to rent/own a practice studio to participate in a band?
You do not, this year Rock n Roulette will take place entirely online.

How much experience do I have to have in order to participate as a band member?
We suggest having at least one year of experience on your instrument and/or past experience in a She Rock Program (like GRRR, WRRR or BBG).

Can our band do cover songs? How long will our set be?
We are encouraging bands to do one original song and one cover song. Bands will choose one song to "perform" at the virtual showcase.

Why can't men participate?
Everyone is welcome to support the bands at the final show and while they are fundraising. However, we are limiting the band members to be folks that our mission serves as we believe that women, trans and nonbinary musicians often face discrimination in the community. So, we want to provide a platform for them to create music in a community that is safe and supportive.

Okay, I'm gonna do this! How do I register?
