Highlights:

Jesse will inspire and entertain audiences of all ages! ROCK-ABLE is a Virtual Disability Awareness and Anti-Bullying School Assembly program for elementary, middle and high school audiences, as well as private groups, conferences and corporate gatherings. This one-hour virtual presentation features the motivational story and original rock music of Jesse Magee and his band Leftstronger. Jesse is an amazing singer, drummer and songwriter who is legally blind and has cerebral palsy.

Join Jesse on this amazing journey, sharing his personal disabilities story, overcoming his challenges and leading to a successful career in music. Jesse demonstrates his adapted style of piano and guitar playing, an acoustic guitar performance, a drum solo, his awesome bongo playing, and three full performances of Jesse's original rock music by his band Leftstronger. Inspiring!

ROCK-ABLE will allow students to gain a better understanding of people with developmental disabilities using a real rock performance by LEFTSTRONGER band and a presentation by lead singer & songwriter Jesse Magee. He accomplishes all this and more despite his personal challenges of having multiple disabilities. His talent speaks for itself and nothing will stand in his way of his success and being a role model for others.

Jesse will inspire students, teachers, parents, and administrative staff that children with disabilities can strive to do anything that want to do in life. Jesse is incredibly talented… with over 100 original catchy songs and a 4+ octave vocal range.

Mission Statement:

Rock-Able strives to increase awareness of disabilities by showing a concrete, living example of a successful musician who has overcome his challenges and adapted to life with multiple disabilities. Within the framework of our presentation, we hope to promote inclusion, acceptance, and inspiration for others who may face their own challenges.

Philosophy/Belief Statement: Since 1998, Caring Communities' efforts have enhanced the quality of life regardless of the nature or severity of the disability and promote inclusion to enjoy full participation in society. The Rock-Able presentation is an effort to reach and influence as many young minds as possible with an inclusive and positive message. Our belief is that messages of inclusion and acceptance are most easily taught when packaged in an engaging format, and by a messenger that resonates with the audience.
Program History:

Originally performed in front of dozens of live audiences, this one-hour virtual presentation is both educational and motivational. Jesse and his band have traveled around the Mid-Atlantic region with Rock-Able to rave reviews, telling his story and performing his original music to audiences of all ages.

This video presentation, produced with professional lighting and sound, is the latest effort by Caring Communities to reach a wider audience with Jesse's message and make it more affordable than ever for schools and other institutions to offer the program to it's audiences.
