Ladies Rise Up and Rock in San Francisco: There’s a Whole Generation With a New Explanation

NASHVILLE, TN — January 31, 2013  Ladies Rise Up and Rock is women in motion. Three amazing styles of rock will explode the stage of The Lodge in San Francisco’s Regency Center when Ladies Rise Up and Rock debuts Saturday, March 23 and three west coast female-fronted bands rise up at 7:30 p.m. General admission tickets are $24 and limited VIP tickets are $40 by visiting  or calling (415) 673-5716.

San Francisco’s instrumental rockers, the Gretchen Menn Trio; Los Angeles folk/pop duo, The Wellspring; and Kiwi Time a female-fronted rock, pop, funk four-piece also from the Bay Area are the featured performers.

Popular Los Angeles comedian, Samantha Hale will host and emcee the event.

Legendary songwriter and featured actor in ABC’s “Nashville,” JD Souther inspired the idea of Ladies Rise Up and Rock in a Facebook post May 23, 2012. Lamenting the idea children do not have a widespread advantage learning music like the era when he grew up spawning many brilliant musicians and his contemporaries, Souther caught Mancuso’s ear. Before long the business model was drafted and several months of planning are the net result of a spectacular night of women in music.

More intimate than Lilith Fair, Ladies Rise Up and Rock embraces the feminine, supporting women’s music while raising money for music education with Grammy in the Schools as the beneficiary. San Francisco is a test market in a business model created by Carl Mancuso of Upswing Public Relations headquartered in Alabama. With the successes of the San Francisco show, Mancuso will take the show to different music centers of the country featuring the female talent in those cities.

A confluence of pop culture, education, and collaboration is a mainstream approach to showcasing some of the best female indie talent on the market. Young women in pursuit of a music career are encouraged to attend Ladies Rise Up and Rock supporting a program that ultimately supports them.The Lodge, one of the Regency Center’s many performance spaces is located at 1290 Sutter Street. AEG Live and Best Beverage Catering are the initial sponsors for this event. Corporate sponsors are welcome to lend their support to a vital national movement attracting young women,  one of the most influential of all consumer groups by purchasing tickets, contacting or making a donation to Grammy in the Schools through the Los Angeles branch information about the featured artists please visit and follow them on Twitter and Facebook at
