Rock to Recovery 10 Year Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser with Special DJ SET BY PAUL OAKENFOLD at The Avalon Dec. 11th, 2022, at 5pm and comedy line-up with David Nihill, Gina Yashere and Dean Delray.

Former Korn, Hed P.E., guitarist Wesley Geer founded Rock to Recovery on December 12, 2012, to give non-musicians access to the magic, and healing powers of playing music and advance the use of music expression groups in various treatment settings. It’s more than just a program, it’s a movement. The music sessions organically help improve body/brain chemistry by stimulating the natural release of serotonin, dopamine, endorphins, and oxytocin Since inception, R2R has worked with well over 200 treatment programs performing 600 sessions each month. Rock to Recovery’s non-profit entity donates its services to state-funded programs and indigent rehabs like Clare Foundation, Friendly House, New Directions for Women, programs for at-risk youths, VA’s and the Wounded Warriors of the USAF, to name a few. The musical nature of its songwriting sessions has proven to be a unique and clinically therapeutic tool, which effectively helps those suffering from PTSD, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, addiction, and eating disorders.

About the founder: Wesley Geer has been a professional musician for over 20 years. He first found success as the founding member of Jive Records artist Hed P.E. as guitarist, songwriter and producer, selling over one million albums, and had rotation on MTv. After touring the world for a decade, Wes left the band for a lifestyle change and ultimately landed in rehab. But noticed the rehab didn’t have music. Then in 2010, at almost three years sober, he was approached to play with the legendary band Korn. He joined Korn and worked with them as their touring guitarist for the next several years, traveling to 50+ countries, headlining shows, playing to crowds of 80,000 people, and appearing on a number of recordings and cable and TV shows. His music has been featured in many feature films, video games, radio, and television shows. After his departure from Korn, Wes decided to create a program that could help proliferate the use of music as a healing force in the world.
