The Montel Williams MS Foundation was established in October 2000 to further the scientific study of the debilitating disease known as Multiple Sclerosis. The objective of the Montel Williams MS Foundation is to provide financial assistance to select organizations and institutions conducting the most up to date research on the disease, while working to increase allocations for research from the federal government. In addition, the foundation is constantly working to educate the public and increase national awareness about MS.

The MS Music Fest was created in conjunction with these goals. The event this year has been expanded to include two separate events and a total of 3 compilation CDs, each for separate genres. In addition, there are a now 34 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists, with a possibility for more. Each selected artists may have up to 2 songs on one compilation.

The three compilations will be put together as follows:

  • Compilation 1: Rock/Metal - 10 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists.
  • Compilation 2: Country Rock & Singer/Songwriter - 12 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists.
  • Compilation 3: Pop - 12 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists

Chosen artists will not only be featured on their specific compilation with song(s) and website listing, but they will also be listed with a link to their website on and other websites.

Please check out to view or purchase last year's compilation (which features appearances and songs by Kevin Martin (Candlebox/The Hiwatts) with his band The Hiwatts and Blues Saraceno (Solo Artist Extraordinaire/Poison/Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker of Cream, etc).

Many of the bands featured on last year's CD have since traded gigs and made new friends and fans. Many of those bands have also been asked to perform live for the first or second time at MS Music Fest this coming year!
