PROTEST pays tribute to the Women Activists who have made a substantial impact on their communities, politics, and the world!

These exciting original Rock compositions in PROTEST transcend the decades. The songs were created for Protests ranging from the Civil Rights era to Black Lives Matter, Climate Change, Gun Violence, Voting rights, Women’s rights, Immigrant rights, LGBTQ rights, and War.

 

The inspiration for PROTEST came to fruition in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and the upheaval in the Twin Cities that followed. Several Artists (composers, lyricists, and producers) signed on to help create these new protest songs. PROTEST a Revolutionary Rock Opus was developed to not only give employment to artists, writers, composers, and lyricists in this time of COVID-19 but to give them an outlet to inspire change in our society through their music!

 

The show also includes famous celebrated past protest songs by

Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, John Fogarty, Joan Baez, Neil Young,

Stephen Stills, Sam Cooke, Pete Seeger, Patti Smith and more!
