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.
