ROCKWORKS Launches Online Music Competition

ROCKWORKS Foundation, a charitable "construction-production" organization, announced the launch of ROCKWORKS Showcase, a fundraising campaign for its Gulf Coast [Re]Build program. This online 'battle of the bands' platform utilizes the powerful sub-culture of new music to raise funds and awareness for ROCKWORKS, and offers undiscovered talent an opportunity for exposure. The competition launches on the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's assault on the Gulf Coast, to raise funds for ROCKWORKS' mission to rebuild the community of Forest Heights, Mississippi.

ROCKWORKS Showcase -- How it works:
Artists register for free at, and their songs are streamed on ROCKWORKS Showcase's Online Radio Network. Bands accrue "nominations" from fans to be sent to the final round of competition. As the official charity of CMJ Music Marathon 2006, ROCKWORKS Showcase offers four finalists a chance to perform live at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City, for a room of music industry professionals.
