The warm up event for the sixth annual Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest is scheduled to take place on 16 September at Sullivan Hall in Manhattan.

Four bands made up of members of the hedge fund and financial services industry will vie to see who has the chops to win the sixth and final slot in the lineup for this year's Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest, the annual fundraiser for the charity A Leg To Stand On.

The band that raises the most money and wins the judges' vote will also perform at Altso's sixth annual Hedge Fund Rocktoberfest, to be held at B.B. King Blues Club in Manhattan on 8 October.

'We never cease to be amazed at the enthusiasm and generosity of the hedge fund industry bands that seek to join us at Rocktoberfest each year and this year is no exception,' says Timothy Wheeler, a bankruptcy attorney with the law firm of Lowenstein Sandler and lead singer with the band The Subscribers. 'In addition to the five acts already on the roster, Stonehedge, Big Dog Party, Behind Closed Doors and The Miracle will all be performing at Sullivan Hall in a competition to determine who will get the sixth and final available spot on the big stage at B.B. King's.'

A long time supporter of Altso, The Subscribers will perform both at Sullivan Hall and B.B. King Blues Club.

Altso improves the lives of children with limb disabilities in emerging countries by providing free surgeries and prosthetic limbs.
