This original series has been created to showcase local talent from major cities across the United States. Unlike The Voice or American Idol, #RockTheCities will focus on bands, artists and DJs. Each city has its own episode, and the music is far from genre specific.
The ultimate goal is to get the attention and backing of a major network, to create funding for the 1st 15 episode season as an original series.
Each episode goes into a brief musical background of that specific city and its featured musicians, allowing them to perform on a moving stage down the middle of the main streets of their hometown.

What is #RocktheCities?
Rock the Cities is not only a one-of-a-kind concert, but it is also going to be a one-of-a-kind Original Series presented by IAmAnthonyD . Originating out of Minneapolis Minnesota, #RockTheCities started as a single show/concert that was located in Downtown Minneapolis (Being used as a unique setting for a music video, Anthony D - Long Way To Go (Official Video))
was recorded on a moving stage, being escorted through the rain, by police, down the busiest streets of Minneapolis on a busy Saturday night while putting on a full on concert!. After generating such a great response, Anthony D decided to do the second show in Oct 2016. After making some adjustments that would prove to be beneficial, not only were we prepared for rain, but we were able to fill a 4 hour window full of music, featuring different genres of local artists, drone footage, top of the line visuals and production. As this concept has grown, I have created goals of taking #RockTheCities to different major cities across the United States. Starting with Denver, Seattle and Portland, we have plans of filming and documenting each city starting in June, filming what it took to pull off the perfect concert. We would travel and be able to pull this off with my crew of six people. Each episode would feature a mix of local DJs, Artists & Bands from that city and be part of a greater series called "#RockTheCities." Once the three cities stated above have episodes completed we will be able to use that as the initial pilot for the new original series (15 Episodes/Cities) series called "#RockTheCities"
#RockTheCities is proud to showcase local talent & offer an opportunity to build exposure.
Risks and Challenges
Some of the unique challenges we will be facing
-Dealing with the City Officials directly, making sure that we abide by the procedures they have in place.
- Getting permits approved for each city
-Finding sponsors and local businesses that will allow us to park and play in front of their establishment while we are on the move.
- Finding major artist and dealing with the labels to have them to perform
- Locking down a major sponsorship such as Netflix or Amazon
