All Ages Riff Rockit, one of the most popular performers in the growing musical genre called “kindie rock” is coming to South Florida for a special concert to benefit the Love Jen Cancer Fund of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. The high energy performance will take place at Revolution LIVE in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, September 29 at 3:00pm. Evan Michael, a.k.a. Riff Rockit, headlines the band which entertains kids and their parents with inspiring songs and positive messages. Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale to musical parents, the singer-songwriter’s love of music began at an early age. Evan was clapping to the beat on his first birthday and by age 10 was jamming on a six-string guitar. At age 15 he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and underwent intensive chemo treatments at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. His cancer went into remission. Two years later he relapsed and required a life-saving bone marrow transplant. Music was Evan’s way of coping during this dark and difficult time. “When I was in the hospital the second time, music was virtually part of my treatment because I had to be isolated from people until my immune system got stronger.” Revolution LIVE generously donated the space to host the Riff Rockit performance. Funds raised from the concert will benefit the Love Jen Fund of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. Admission is only $10 and sponsorship opportunities are available.
