Rockers on Broadway, now in its 17th year, was founded in 1993 by Donnie Kehr while appearing in the Broadway run of The Who’s Tommy. The show was inspired by Who guitarist Pete Townshend, who wanted the play’s performers to experience the feeling of singing with a rock band in a concert style venue, and to transfer the rawness of that edge to the stage. Rockers on Broadway brings rock stars and Broadway stars together to raise money for good causes.

The PATH Fund, Inc. (Performing Artists That Help) was founded as a result of the success of Rockers on Broadway and aims to give artists of all kinds an avenue to share their unique talents while helping raise money for charities that benefit the arts and entertainment communities that inspire their livelihood. PATH is an official 501c3 and in recent years has donated over $100,000 to various charities including Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Wingspan Arts, the Bendheim Center/Scholarship Fund and the Broadway Dreams Foundation.
