Founder Cindy Landeen says: “Our mission is to acknowledge the contributions of a group of stunningly gifted musicians and professionals who flew under the radar while delivering to the world music that has orchestrated the soundtrack of many lives. We believe that these virtuosos, maestros and those working in the trenches behind the scenes need not wait any longer to be recognized and acknowledged for their part. In the day they may have been relatively unknown to the music world and fans at large but RockGodz Hall of Fame has purposely taken on the challenge and goal of celebrating their achievements.”

About RockGodz Hall of Fame – RockGodz Hall of Fame was founded in 2009 for honoring those who have contributed to rock and roll and who may not have received the recognition that they deserve. The focus of the organization is to acknowledge the valuable contribution that their Inductees have made to rock and roll by bringing us the music of our lives. RockGodz Hall of Fame started in 2009 as a grassroots movement and has been building momentum for the past few years as the premier award in rock and roll. They raise money for their cause through private and corporate donations, sponsors of their events and ticket sales.
