You may or may not know this, but rocker (and frequent New Yorker of the week) has recently started a non-profit organization called Rock Asylum Foundation that teaches elementary school students their academic curriculum through original rock music.

Within a few months Paulie Z has secured our 501(c)(3) status for the Rock Asylum Organization, written and their first song called “Scientific Method” which you can see by clicking the image below. Z02 has played free concerts to schools in the Tri-State area and is actively setting up programs for this fall at two schools in Brooklyn!

This is a classic case of someone coming up with a great idea and not stopping until they succeed. And success seems to be in the set list for Paulie Z and Z02. You may remember them from their show on IFC called Z-Rock which ran for a few seasons.

But the best part of this whole concept is that everyone wins. From what I have seen and heard it has so far been an amazing journey. Paulie is dedicated to bringing the concept to kids nationwide with plans for his own Rock Asylum school. And some important celebs and rockers are joining the effort and lending their support including ZO2, Stoned Fire, Daredevil Squadron, Queen V, All Pointz West, Our Black Friday, DJ Alex Kayne, Constantine Maroulis, Steve Augeri, Bill Cowher, Warren Sapp, Zach89, Krista Ayne, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal of Guns & Roses, and many more.

Rock Asylum is in its first year so they need your support to take this organization to the next level. The orgainization can continue to do this and so much more all year around if they have your support and the proper funding. And so – The First Annual “EDGE ROCK BALL” fundraiser is booked for this fall at Webster Hall (formerly The Ritz).

I urge you to PLEASE save the date of Oct 12th on your calendar and make it a priority to be there. If there’s only one event you can go to in 2012, this would be it! This fundraiser will be a major stepping stone for Rock Asylum – an organization truly worthy of your support.
