The rock n’ roll attorneys at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are at it again.

For the second year, G.O.A.T Rodeo will take the stage in a battle of the bands—of legal professionals who rock— on Thursday, Sept. 12, in Washington, D.C. Two of the band members— lead vocalist and keyboardist Stacy Puente and lead guitarist Jon Shapiro—are moonlighting SEC Attorney Advisors and Chapter 293 (SEC) members.

If G.O.A.T. Rodeo gets the highest marks from judges of the fifth annual Law Rocks competition, the band’s winnings will be donated to the Federal Employee Education and Assistance (FEEA) Fund. The band has previously raised hundreds for the charity at last year’s competition and during the partial government shutdown.

Rounding out the band are legal professionals from Bloomberg BNA, as well as Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles, who designed the band’s logo.

Even if you can’t make the show, you can still contribute to FEEA and support G.O.A.T. Rodeo by visiting the Law Rocks website.

G.O.A.T. Rodeo will play Thursday, Sept. 12 at the 9:30 Club (815 V Street N.W., Washington, D.C.). Doors open at 7 p.m., with V.I.P. tickets available for an early reception at 6 p.m. To buy tickets or make a donation to support FEEA on behalf of G.O.A.T Rodeo, visit
