Last month, Long-Island based performance school Musicology hosted Rock the Lot, a fundraiser to promote awareness for Autism Speaks, with support from Korg USA Inc. and local rock radio station 94.3 The Shark.

The event honored local New York State Senator John Flanagan, as well as legendary bassist CJ Ramone for their generous contributions to the cause through the years. The day included games, raffles, and performances led by the students, including a memorable cover of “Blitzkrieg Bop” with CJ Ramone himself.

“With the support from Korg USA, Inc., Senator Flanagan and CJ Ramone, we were able to raise a few thousand dollars for this incredible charity,” says Patrick Castania, owner of Musicology. “All the proceeds were donated to Autism Speaks and we look forward to supporting them again soon.” 

Korg USA, Inc. donated a wide variety of gear including a Crush Drum Alpha kit, a selection of VOX and Blackstar amps, Korg Pitchclip tuners, a digital piano and Korg’s popular Microkorg and monologue synthesizers.
