Eye Totally Rock

Times flies when you’re having fun, so it’s hard to believe that next month we’ll be putting on the third annual EyeRock New York concert. The EyeRock Band, featuring more than 20 of the optical industry’s best rock musicians and singers, is playing a return engagement at BB King Blues Club on Saturday, March 20. The concert will again benefit OneSight, a Luxottica Group Foundation that delivers free vision care and eyewear to underprivileged individuals around the world. That’s Eric Rollins (left), Bruce Meyer (center) and Paul Shyer pictured performing at last year’s New York show.

This year, Converse and John Varvatos by REM Eyewear is EyeRock’s presenting sponsor. The official media sponsor of the event is Jobson Optical Group. Tickets for the event are $50 each and are available beginning February 1. For more information or to become a sponsor, visit www.onesight.org.
