Some Lehigh Valley rockers are striking a pose in a new calendar.
Besides being a promotional tool, the calendar is also raising money for a good cause.
For years, bands like Triage, Black Fate, and CACD Tribute have been rocking the stage in the Lehigh Valley.
"The Lehigh Valley local music scene is not the way it used to be back in the 80's," said Bryan Shumway, lead singer of CACD. "It was a big scene back then."
With fewer local venues for their kind of music and a down economy, some bands have been struggling.
So local photographer Tracie Lovett had an idea, create a "Valley Rockers" calendar.
"I wanted to do something to give back to them just as a way to say thank you," added Lovett. "To give them some free PR, free promotion."
"I believe that the calendar is going to make not only the club owners aware of the talent that is in the Lehigh Valley but the people as well," said Tim Drovich, lead singer of Triage.
While the calendar doesn't come out for a couple of months, all the pictures were taken at park settings around the Lehigh Valley. Unique locations, to spotlight a unique music scene.
"The cover is actually finished but it's a secret," said Amy Danner, who helped work on the calendar.
You'll have to wait to until October 5th to see it when it's officially released at a concert.
Proceeds from the calendar will be donated to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley.
"Get some exposure for the band and sort of feed the rock start fantasy a little bit," said Ron Call, a rhythm guitar player for CACD. "So what's not to like."
Bands hope the new fame will lead to playing larger venues in the area.
