The Greater Des Moines Music Coalition will hold its fourth annual fundraiser Backstage Ball on Feb. 22, at the Val Air Ballroom from 7 to 11 p.m.

This year's event will feature a 1950s sock hop theme to celebrate the birth of rock 'n' roll and the Val Air Ballroom's role in the Des Moines music scene. Live music will include Des Moines artists Bob Tyler & the Reckless Hearts, Uproar Jazz Quintet and DJ Tone Zone. A silent auction will feature tickets to local events and venues.
