Miami is throwing an environmentally- and family-friendly, star-studded party that will turn even the staunchest environmentalist Green with envy.

The annual Bayside Rocks Music & Arts Festival on November 19th 2011 at downtown Miami’s Bayfront Park is happy to welcome Budweiser on board, with our “green conscious “ to decrease the environmental impact in Miami. Budweiser recognized our green initiatives that resonated with their environmental message that dates back to the late 1800’s with the founder Adolphus Busch, who began recycling leftover grain from the brewing process and selling it for cattle feed, a practice that continues today. They made a conscious decision and came on board in a big way to further push its “green” identity on the local & national level. This event will incorporate local businesses and organizations, forming positive relationships that will ultimately have a positive impact on the community and environment in conjunction with America Recycles Day. Together we will resonate this message: “Our goal is to connect our efforts to a collective responsibility we share with our family, friends, employees, consumers, wholesalers, retailers, law enforcement, elected officials, educators and other partners. After all, these are our roads, our kids, our neighborhoods and this is our Earth; and it is our obligation to work together to help support our communities.”

A star-filled tribute to Jamaican music will mark a concert extravaganza as the 2nd annual Bayside Rocks Music & Arts Festival offers up a jam-packed cavalcade of stars, and a day of peace, love & unity on November 19th 2011 in Miami, Florida.

This year’s Bayside Rocks will feature world music headliners Bunny Wailer, Luciano, Tabou Combo, Cultura Profetica, Gondwana, Warrior King, Pato Banton, Connis Vanterpool and The Original Wailers, as well as some of world music’s most promising up-and-coming talent. Plus a special tribute to the life of Honorable Robert Nesta ‘Bob’ Marley and 50 years of Wailers music.

Produced by ROCKAZ MVMT (, Bayside Rocks was designed as a fun filled day of social consciousness, community and environmental awareness on a musical platform with an urgent humanitarian effort to fight poverty and feed the hungry whilst providing ecologically engineered economic transformation on a global scale. Music, art, fashion and food from around the world provide the backdrop to a truly amazing cultural experience.

Through the universal language of music, as well as vision for the arts and cultural media, ROCKAZ MVMT and its president and CEO Alfonso D’Niscio Brooks are striving to change the world for the better by empowering people to make a positive difference.

“Our ultimate goal is to uplift the spirit and inspire people of every ilk to give of themselves to help make the world a better place in which to live,” said D’Niscio Brooks. “We’re accomplishing this task by spreading art, culture and music while raising money to end poverty, feed the hungry and shelter the homeless.”

This year, concert proceeds will include a food drive benefiting Curley’s House an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for low-to-moderate income individuals, families, the elderly, youth-at-risk, the abused, and HIV/AIDS infected individuals by providing the nutrition they need. Guests will be asked to contribute two or more cans of food as part of the cost of admission.

“Given the philanthropic nature of this event, we’re inviting all civic minded companies to join us as sponsors of this event,” D’Niscio Brooks said. “It’s a great way to get your name in front of tens of thousands of people while ensuring that hundreds of thousands of dollars are donated to a very worthy cause.”
