Cleveland’s Redwater RoJo Rocks Out to Benefit Coats for Kids Foundation

rwrofficial_logo Up-and-coming Cleveland band, Redwater RoJo is seeking to establish themselves as rockers who care by taking the stage for before Christmas for the Coats for Kids Foundation Inc. (CFK).  

The doors open for this much-anticipated event at 8:30 pm Thursday, December 20th at the Grog Shop in Cleveland, OH, where all profits will go to CFK.  Admission is free with the donation of a new winter coat.  Without a donation, tickets are $6 (21+ crowd) or $8 (under 21).  Additionally, all proceeds from Redwater RoJo CD sales will go to CFK.

Meyers wants to use his band's talent to help others less fortunate, especially kids in his hometown.  “We're lucky to be in this unique position that allows us to help those in need while doing what we enjoy most,” Meyers said.  “We want to do everything we can to collect coats and donations for this terrific charity.”

Redwater RoJo was formed by Cleveland natives, Jason Meyers (lead vocals, guitar) and Joe Romito (lead guitar) in 2005.  The addition of Joe Wheelock (bass) and Matt Vertock (drums) in 2006 completed the strong line-up.  Redwater RoJo’s down home rock and roll is a scarcity in Cleveland, where metal is king.  Redwater RoJo’s mojo delivers live performances that leave the audience wanting more.

For CFK, this is a year of many firsts, from having their first town-wide coat drive, to their first wine tasting fundraiser, and even being added as a part of Second Life on the Internet. "This is also the first time that musicians have reached out to us,” said Paul Darby, co-founder of CFK.  “We are overjoyed."

Meyers says this won't be the last time Redwater RoJo pairs with charities such as CFK.  “I’m hoping to strike a chord with local musicians,” said Meyers.  “Our goal is to inspire others in the area to give back to their community this holiday season and beyond.”
