"This year we will honor two of America's teen idol icons Micky Dolenz and Frankie Valli with Lifetime Achievement Awards and legendary DJ 'Cousin' Brucie Morrow with the Ambassador of Rock Award," Donnie Kehr said in a statement. "Teen idols have always been a special kind of rock star! When their songs came on the radio our hearts skipped a beat. We tacked their photos to our bedroom walls, faithfully watched their TV shows and bought their records — and we might have even written some of them a love note or two... we all had one."
For over two decades, the annual Rockers on Broadway benefit concert has raised over $300,000. Proceeds from this year's event benefit The Broadway Dreams Foundation and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Tickets range from $30-250.
