Hello I’m John Hollis Co-Founder of Rockers In Recovery, a media and productions company that specialize in bringing addiction education together with music events. The events are to help those affected by addiction may it be the addict or their loved ones.

We make these events totally free to anyone who would like to attend. In order to do this we rely on sponsorship dollars. We work very hard to make this a win win for everyone.

How? By becoming a sponsor we promote your organization/company through our many media platforms based on the sponsorship level you decide on. The earlier a sponsor comes aboard the longer you are promoted. You are also part of a great community event that promotes and shows recovery is possible (hope) as well as educating and helping those in need (help).

Of course in turn your sponsorship dollars are a 100% advertising write off and mostly  help pay for the production costs of the event. A win win!!

So act now and get your organization/company’s logo on them as one of our event sponsors,  as well as getting the media exposure we provide for several months.

Again, we can only do this event through the participation of organizations/business like yours.

Let’s “Unite to Fight” against the ignorance and stigma associated with addiction! I thank you for you time and consideration.

Meet Hightown Pirates, your new favourite band.

Music Review By John Hollis: Hightown Pirates (London, UK) is a band formed by singer / songwriter, writer and raconteur Simon Mason also known for his acclaimed memoir Too High Too Far Too Soon. HIghtown Pirates debut album ‘Dry And High’ was released in 2017.

“I’ve falling in love with ‘Dry And High’, Simon puts his recovery based music in a way that is going to leave you with wanting more as it did me. I highly recommend ‘Dry And High’ for your music library and to be shared with the recovery community. This music is high energy and filled with the message of hope that Recovery Rocks.

Darkest Before Dawn – Eric Clapton

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

John Hollis – RIR Co-Founder

By John Hollis, RIR Co-Founder – It was 2004 and I was stuck in a room drinking and drugging like a pig. I was using 24 hours a day 7 days a week. My state of mental health was off the chain to say the least. Deep down inside I was on a road to death and knew it and was really ok with it. It’s Always Darkest Before Dawn.

I was working in the Midwest and every night I would spend hours getting high, watching porn, and listening to music online. One night I was searching my favorite musical artist Eric Clapton. To my surprise up came a video of him talking about his recovery and how his life had changed. I was blown away, and started to listen to it over and over. This video of my musical hero gave me so much hope. I was near death and it took two more years to come into recovery. I always kept playing that video over and over in my head it gave me hope over the next two years in times of suicidal and morbid thinking.

eric-clapton-music-quotesTwo years after I got sober in 2006, Rockers in Recovery® was formed in 2008 by Lori Welch Sullivan and Myself. What began as a radio program to spread the message of recovery through news, interviews, and music has grown into a multifaceted media and production company.

In 2010, I was invited by Kim Martin, Program Director of Crossroads Centre Antigua to broadcast live from Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. What an amazing day, the Rockers In Recovery® -Music Festivals vision was born that day. A way to carrying a message of  Addiction Education & Awareness and do it through Rock-N-Roll.

John Hollis Founder of Rockers In Recovery

2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival

On February 12, 2011 the vision came true, we did our first Education & Awareness music festival called love of recovery. We have gone on to produce twenty seven concerts, festivals, and drug and alcohol addiction community meet and greets across the United States. Rockers in Recovery® now attracts thousands to our music festivals and reaches millions more through our online media reach. The message Rockers in Recovery® is spreading through rock ‘n’ roll: there is hope, addiction recovery is possible.

I thank Eric Clapton for being open about his recovery and for being a power of example to me to this day. Unbeknownst to me, through the work of my Higher Power, that experience helped me to shift my thinking towards recovery, it would also become many visions to a movement that would change my life and many others.

Rockers In Recovery – 2015 Year In Review

2015 RIR-Year In Review

Rockers In Recovery – 2015 Year In Review

 Where are we without a community? A community is what helps shape who we are and gives us values and helps strengthen our beliefs. Merriam-Webster defines “Community” as: an interacting population of various kinds of individuals (as species) in a common location.

Rockers In Recovery (RIR) is a community of dedicated people who live to carry a message of hope to addicts and alcoholics and their families who all are suffering. RIR shared common goal of spreading hope and enlightenment across the country has turned out to be something RIR never expected. We are not a treatment program. RIR is an organization with the sole mission to provide prevention and education to anyone who suffers with drug addiction and alcoholism. We do this through our Free Community Addiction Educational Meet & Greets and Free Community Music Festivals/Concerts

We also help educate many through our Multiple Media addiction/education informational based websites and Social Media platforms too. It all started in January 2008 doing interviews on RIR Addiction Talk Radio and 8 years later our addiction/education message is presented through the following; live concerts and festivals, community meet & greets, social media posting, RIR & Guest blogging, articles in the RIR magazine, (in print and online), RIR Live Concert and Event Streaming. This makes it easy for our addiction/education message to reach millions of people globally with just a click of a mouse.

Education is the key to unlock the door of freedom and Rockers In Recovery is dedicated to addiction recovery education through music, news, interviews, events, and festivals taking place within our communities across the United States.  We also get to help thousands face to face at our concerts, festivals and events and here are some places over 2015 we did just that;

Love of Recovery, Standing United Against Addiction In Honor of the memory of Joseph C. Hollis Sr.

Learn the History of the – “Love Of Recovery” RIR Music & Art Festival

My name is John Hollis Co-Founder of Rockers in Recovery Media which was started in 2008 along with my partner Lori Sullivan. Dedicated to music, news, interviews, events, and festivals.

The RIR goal is to educate and support people about addiction issues, as well as the forms of addiction treatment and ongoing recovery support. We had our first free music festival February 12, 2011, with many bands from the local area that had sober members or members that just wanted to support the RIR recovery mission. Which in time the message became to be known as addiction awareness and prevention through rock-n-roll. We have gone on to produce 29 full musical productions and the following is how the vision became a reality;

I will never forget the date: it was December 10, 2010, when I woke up in the middle of the night (like I usually do) and was eating a bowl of ice cream and the thought came to me (God inspired) “LETS HAVE A CONCERT”. Now mind you we had no clue where to start and how to do one, but we knew it was something we had to do. The next day we started by calling a local lighting and production company in our local area “Everlast Productions” to help us put together our very first concert which end-up being a $25,000.00 production. We had no idea where and how we were to fund it but we were determined to move forward on faith and a prayer.

First we went to the private recovery industry as well as business owners in the community to ask for their support to help us put on the first “Love of Recovery” RIR Music & Art Festival”. It was simply going to be a festival to carry a message of hope to addicts and alcoholics and their families who were suffering or for those in recovery to enjoy the message that recovery is possible and can be fun and we were going to do it through music.
Now as I started out to tell everyone about my new found vision, (and as visions go) not everyone was excited as I was. LOL. So here I am calling treatment center after treatment center to hear “WHAT” that’s crazy it will never work or they wanted know how it was going to benefit them by such questions/statements like “How Does That Put Heads in Our beds”. The local community business owners just straight up said “NO Way” we’re not interested. Only a couple businesses got honest with me and said “listen I love what you’re doing but we don’t want our names associated with that type of event.

1187276_587183914658820_1215443395_nNow during this time I was doing my 2 times daily radio show on a local AM station in south Florida. It was during my evening show on December 16, 2010, during one of my commercial breaks, that my phone rang and I answered it. It my Aunt with bad news. She told me that my Dad had passed away. I was floored, and I still had 15 minutes of a live show to finish with my guest and good friend Robert Gluck.  Still numb as hell from her news, I managed continued on and got through the interview with him. It seemed like the longest fifteen minutes ever. All I can say is I thanked God for my sobriety. I had been sober at that time 4 years. When I got home I made the travel arrangements to get New York to be with my family and to help them with whatever was needed of me. Of course it was a very difficult time for all of us (as it always is with the death of a loved one). But you know what? I got through it.. sober.

Then the unexpected miracle happened, my Dad had left me an inheritance of approximately $100,000 dollars between life insurance and other things. I was completely blown away! After I got home it was on December 22nd 2010 that I received the first of my inheritance it was from his a life insurance. The check was for $30,000 dollars! I remember saying “thank you Dad” because that check was going to pay for most of our very first “Love of Recovery” free to all.. RIR Music Festival” along with the support of Sound Pillow ,one treatment center and a detox whom each did $1,000.00 sponsorship each and Fellowship Living who donated the venue. To me it was my Dad who sponsored the rest.

Our first festival was an unbelievable experience. We steamed the whole festival live on Ustream and broadcasted it live on our AM Station platform. It Was 2011 and simocasted the event though AM Radio, Blog Talk Radio, and Streamed in real time to Ustream with a 4 camera shoot on Social Media. It was long before Facebook Live and just the broadcast was huge expense. Several folks went to treatment from that 1st festival, by the Grace Of God and the Love Of Recovery.

That event drew approximately 1000 people throughout the day with only a little over 6 weeks of promotions! At one point during the show I remember I was standing on the side of the stage during the RIR Unplugged set and tears, uncontrollable tears, ran down my face. It was incredible to see some 200 young people IN RECOVERY, arm and arm in front of the stage swaying back and forth to the music. INCRIDABLE I say, a God moment if ever. I remember saying “thank you God and thank you so much Dad for your gift to me”.

In 2015 Mr. Tom Coderre, Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA was our 2015 – 4th Annual Love of Recovery Music Festival MC for the day, we were so honored that he accepted. He then went back to Washington and put together UNITE to Face Addiction with Greggy Williams. We were honored when they asked Rockers In Recovery to do media reach for Greggy and his crew.

15973669244_d11a96b891_zTom Coderre, Senior White House Advisor to SAMHSA said to festival attendees,

“I can say at this point, Rockers In Recovery brings the private treatment sector, addiction education, and the addiction advocacy non-profit sectors together in a unique way that no one else at this point is doing anywhere in the United States. When I walked around today to meet the people that are at the Festival, I find that there’s a mix of people. There are in people who have already found recovery, family members seeking help for love ones, recovery supporters, treatment centers with their clients, and people from the community just coming by to see what it was all about. The one thing I have heard over and over is that the people loved the unique message of hope. I believe what makes Rockers In Recovery unique is that the recovery message/model is carried through the universal language of music with some of great rockers of the day, combined that with educational speakers and advocacy groups and programs to give information and help to those seeking it. RIR brings it all together to attract people to recovery through addiction awareness and education at their meet and greets, concerts/festivals”.

To this day that Tom’s statement blows me away and all I can say is, “Wow another God moment” for me. It’s such an honor, who would have thought all these years later that gift from my Dad would go on to do, what it has done.  Many organisations now follow the same model for their events and many treatment programs  years later are starting to use the unplugged model for treatment centers and as a therapeutic tool. Today we give back by, doing what we can to support others with the same visions to learn more about our model. Thank God For The 12 Steps , I use to get resentful when someone would use my God inspired concepts or ideas, then I realized the concept or idea belonged to God’s universe, not me.

Through my Father’s gift to me, we now reach hundreds of thousands of people with the message of hope everyday online along with the thousands threw our annual festivals.  What we can’t do alone we can do together, and together that help came to me from Singer-Songwriters, Musicians and Bands like MiZ Band,  Paul Wilson of Sobriety Unplugged, George Massengill (Chillbillies), Andy (Babe) Pace (Gary US Bonds), Basil Bankston (The Platters),Charlotte Day (Vocalist), Drew Preston (Drew Preston Project), Tony Fellows on Lead Guitar (RIR All Star Band Member), Davis Mitchell on Guitar (Chillbillies), Daniel Holt on Bass (Johnny B. and The Road Dogs), Peter Keys of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Don Tyler of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lou Esposito (The Capris), Simon Kirke (Bad Co.), Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople), Michael Des Barres, Marge Raymond (ELO), LaLa Brooks (The Crystals), Gene Cornish (The Rascals), Peppy Castro (Blue Magoos), David Uosikkinen (The Hooters), Vic Monte (Crush), Ed Walsh (Grateful Road), Michael Mostel (RIR Unplugged), Chris Waddell (RIR Unplugged), Bruce Duncan (RIR Unplugged), Joseph Antonelli (Joe Zep), Stacey Hampton (RIR Unplugged), Maria Doty (Double Standard), Ceefor Ebrahimi (Ceefor Band),RC. Budaca, Jam Alder, Brian Vincent Sances, Tommy Conwell of the Young Rumblers, Nashville, Tenn.-based singer-songwriter John McAndrew , Recovery Rappers Adam Neff, Rob Rival Palo and the late blues great David Shelley, The Wilkof Project, Woody Giessmann , Elizabeth Edwards,  McCartney Mania, The Chillbillies, The Grateful Road , Crush Band of South Florida, The Few, Thrown Alive, Billy J. Kramer, Handsome Dick Manitoba (The Dictators, Little Steven’s Underground Garage), Mark Bosch (Ian Hunter Rant Band, Garland Jeffries), Ross the Boss (The Dictators), Joe Hurley (Joe Hurley and The Gents, Keith Richards’ LIFE), Arno Hecht and Larry Etkin (Uptown Horns), Adam Roth (Billy J. Kramer), Rocker Colin McGuinness, and Tommy Conwell of the Young Ramblers. Each of these energetic musicians brings not only 100% but gives an extra 100% when supporting any causes or events.

It was also through Dad’s gift we were able to hire musicians like, Lou Esposito (The Capri’s), Jeff Gantz (Johnny Winter), Ricky Byrd (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts), Liberty DeVitto (Billy Joel), Richie Supa (Aerosmith), Kasim Sulton (Blue Oyster Cult and Todd Rundgren), Christine Ohlman (Saturday Night Live Band), Mark Stein (Vanilla Fudge), Marge Raymond (singer/songwriter/actress), Casey Montana Rogers, Jeff Kazee (Southside Johnny, Bon Jovi), along with his band mates Chris Anderson, Neal Pawley and Muddy Shews to headline our festivals to the community as another way of attraction to support the cause. We spent tens of thousands of dollars, to find it really doesn’t work. People come to have fellowship and fun, we found that more grassroots & local bands where received better then the headlines. It also became over a two year time period an ego and personal agenda fest, dotted with behind the scenes political, business and personal motivation for a few. That made me very sick, it almost killed me and almost destroyed the mission of addiction prevention and education though music. Now the musicians who are meant to be there, God and his universe will direct that. What an amazing sometimes, painful learning journey for me one day at a time.

In closing all I can say is: thank you to God and thank you to my father Joseph C. Hollis Sr. for all the gifts we have received. It’s through music and its awesome sound that I live with a purpose today. I have been given many visions throughout the years, and have been lucky enough to see some of them become realities. It’s with these realities comes responsibilities as well. There have been times when I’ve tried to run away from them due to my own ego, fear, and pride, but that mission in my heart to help people always brings me home to the most important message, the message of hope. (A God moment).

A Miracle In Itself

RIR,

Just wanted to drop you a line about the show in Aberdeen, Washington last month. Everyone involved with the show was extremely professional and well prepared.

It was obvious that R.I.R. is an organization focused on recovery, who knows exactly how to get the message across to people through it’s concert series.

As a drummer who has done his share of concerts, I can tell you the show went off without a hitch, from the musicians to the sound guys, to security. The type of music for the show reached everybody that was there, as was evidenced by several people taking the steps to get into treatment! A miracle in itself.

I’m looking forward to doing many more concerts with R.I.R.

Sincerely,

John Gianoulis

Rockin Recovery

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

Rockin Recovery

The recovery process is a gradual step-by-step process.  With recovery, it takes a large portion of patience and an even greater serving of faith; just as it takes infinite patience and grace to follow through with the Festival of Gratitude.  November is gratitude month, and November 2, 2013 kicked off Rockers In Recovery’s 3rd annual festival of gratitude.  

 

It did not begin there though – Rockers In Recovery rocked their gratitude and rockin’ spirit on Rocktober 31st at Destination Hope,The Academy for Addiction Professionals and at Sunrise Detox with a Rockumentary filmed by Reach Out Recovery’s Leslie Glass and series of interviews of a few of the RIR All-Star band members and sponsors.

  

Richie Supa and Ricky Byrd took turns sharing their stories and songs as they played the Unplugged series at both locations.  Music and humor are both integral to a successful recovery.  Music helps focus people and humor keeps life light.  From the mock-fun song, “I Want to Go to Rehab,” to somber songs like “In the Rooms,” and “Broken,” they kept the audience wanted more. Both centers loved their honesty though great music written by Richie Supa.

   

RIR has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.  Not only is there boundless gratitude for everyone who participated and came to the festival, but for Reach Out Recovery’s Leslie Glass for filming a Rockumentary.  RIR was being followed by a camera crew at both Destination Hope and Sunrise Detox, both treatment facilities who have sponsored and supported RIR success through the past several years.  

The crew with Reach Out Recovery continued their filming straight through to the big gratitude festival on Saturday, November 2nd.  Great music rolled out all day starting with The Crude Brood, Crush Band, Doug Hirsch and Friends, Fat Chance, Sooner or Later Band, Keep Coming Back Band, Jimmy Stowe & the Stowaways, Johnny B. and the Road Dogs. Each one of the bands that played at the festival all rocked with top-notch energy than ever before.   

 

RIR would be lost without each and everybody who took the time to support recovery and music, especially the RIR All-Star band Featuring:Musical Director Richie Supa(Aerosmith)- Guitar/Vocals Ricky Byrd  Lead Guitar/ Vocals (Joan Jett),Liberty Devitto  Drums (Billy Joel Band),Christine Ohlman  Lead Vocals (SNL Band),Mark Stein-Keys/Vocals (Vanilla Fudge)Muddy Shews- Bass/Vocals (Southside Johnny) RIR Band Special Guest Recovery Supporters: Gary Palmer BSO, Marge Raymond (ELO), and Lou Esposito (The Capris). The RIR All-Star band had tirelessly helped and supported RIR and the festival with every iota of their beings.

 

Every stage that the RIR All-Star band rocks out on proves that energy increases with every year of recovery.  Each musician makes their instrument effortless to play and makes the audience scream for more.  

 

The Festival of Gratitude took an enormous amount of work, just like recovery, and when everyone comes together sharing their love it makes all the blood, sweat and tears worth it.  There was a meet and greet session the night before the festival where Lori Sullivan, director and founder of RIR, sang her praises to her family of RIR for all their help and support.  Meet and greet sessions are a special time where people can meet each of the band members of RIR All-Star band and show their gratitude and appreciation.

Fest day the music came off the stage with perfection. Veteran stage manger Chopper Kovach and veteran guitar tech Daniel Garber who both work for the who’s who of Rock & Roll made it look easy. John Delarenzo of On Stage Productions worked for three days to make it all happen.

Community restaurant owners Jamie and Rebecca  McDonnell came in to the festival with a passion like it was there own. His origination DelVecchio’s headed up all the food vendors. Jamie’s hard work made this years festival a great smash with some great eats.

Broward County Sheriff Scott and wife Susan Israel, Captain Ira Goldberg BSO, Rick and Rita Case, Ira Levy, Ben Brafman, Joe McDonnell, Rebecca McDonnell, Robin West, Scott Armbuster, Naomi Fabricant,Leslie Glass, CB Smith Park along with RIR Co Founder, Lori Sullivan truly had the fest come together without too many bumps in the road.

Richie Supa’s  RIR Unplugged began the festival and the RIR All-Star closed the celebration.  The entire day was filled with nonstop musical energy, including the recovery comedian Steve Johnson.

I got to meet some very cool people from the recovery community that work as hard as RIR when it comes to caring a message of hope. Reach Out Recovery, In The Rooms,Faces and Voices, Young People In Recovery Foundation,12 Palms Recovery Center and Clearbrook Treatment Centers of PA. Not counting the artists displaying some very cool art. 

 

The overall emotion from the weekend was that recovery, fun, and gratitude are very much alive and well at the RIR festivals and concerts.  When everyone comes together with a common vision of celebrating a clean life, it makes it even more fun to rock-and-roll.
