Reliable, personable, humble, resourceful and always a team player, Nick never lets minor hiccups interrupt his ever-positive perspective on the work we do as entertainers.  We are honored to call Nick a member of our RTH family.

Lets get to know Nick a little better now, shall we?

  • Pre-event snack? Gushers
  • Post event snack? Chinese food

Fun fact

It takes Nick 5-10 minutes to do his hair every day. However, he is always tending to it throughout the day to make sure it stays looking fresh. Nick has been rocking this hairstyle for 4 years now.

“Nick is an invaluable asset to Rock The House because of his ability to perform at ANY type of event. Whether he is asked to get the dance floor rocking with his DJ skills, dance skills, or rock his mic skills, he answers every time. It’s been a pleasure to see him grow from a talented but shy 17-year-old, to a talented and charismatic young man.” – Travis Rose, Talent Director

How To: Throw The Best Sports Viewing Party… EVER.

Posted on May 4, 2016 in Lighting & Drapery

With our very own Cleveland Cavaliers marching their way through the NBA playoffs, friends and families all over Greater Cleveland are coming together to cheer on our team.

As we all know, a night out at any sporting event can be VERY costly. From tickets, to transportation, food, and beverages, a simple night out can turn into a credit card on a respirator with a hole burnt in your pocket (and soul).

All of that “moolah” spent on a night out for two? Why not allocate and relocate the fandom and host a viewing party that ALL of your friends and family can enjoy?

RTH is seasoned in the art of throwing parties. Let us tell you how to throw the BEST sports viewing party EVER that the neighborhood will never stop talking about.

Light Up The Night

Illuminate your home with your team colors. That way, there is no room for misunderstanding where the party is. Your guests will not only arrive to your party without problem, but also will begin to feel the team spirit even before walking in!

The Bigger, The Better

Turn your home into your own personal viewing theater and rent a huge LED monitor for your guests. Your once “average” viewing party with a 40-inch TV is taken to a whole new level when your home turns into a professional theater with a 70-inch viewing screen.

Video Screen Rentals

Let’s Get Loud

Blow your guests’ minds (and not your speakers) by having a team of professionals install top-of-the-line surround sound in your home for the game. The sound system will bring the “just walked into the stadium” feeling straight to your home. Feeling as if you are at the game, while enjoying the comfort of sitting on a familiar couch seems like a win-win in any book!

Take Things Outside

Don’t want to mess up the entire house with people trafficking in and out? That’s ok. Set up your watch party in a tent in your yard. Your guests will enjoy themselves in a new and exciting setting and you won’t worry about footprints tracking through your home from travel throughout the house.

The Whole Nine Yards

Can’t find a sitter? Don’t panic. The kids can be entertained by renting giant, interactive games to play during time outs. This way, mom and dad can enjoy their time and no child is left bored. Seldom can parents drag their kids to an “adult” party that they will enjoy, but life-size tic-tac-toe will bring the fun out of anyone!

AAble Rents After Party Gets Rocked

 AAble Rents, known for its elaborate tent and event rentals, pulled out all of the stops with a little help from Rock The House, for its unveiling of LOFT1365 in Cleveland.

The AAble After Hours Party showcased a multi-million dollar renovation of AAble Rents headquarters. The event all went down after the WOW Awards, with more than 250 special event industry friends in attendance.

The theme of the night was a Miami nightclub, and that’s exactly what was created. Rock The House brought in 25,000 Watts of sound and provided a stunning and vibrant light show, video projection mapping, a Mirror Photo Booth, SocialCast, and a club-style DJ. You’d have to see it to believe it. Check out the video below!

Guests couldn’t even tell they were in a warehouse once the lights went down and the music started. The rest of the night, guests enjoyed food, including Barrio Tacos, a food truck, drinks, and plenty of music and dancing.

A big shout out to our colleagues and friends who made the night a huge success! L’Nique, DonutLab, David Corey – Photography, Event Source, Superior Speedie Portable Services, Barrio Tacos, and Piccadilly Artisan Creamery.

 

Why a Mirror Booth Would Be a Great Addition to Any Event

 2016 - Mirror Booth Website A

Do you have an event coming up and are looking for something that will keep your guests talking about your event for years to come? Well, look no further than Rock the House’s very own Mirror Booth.

Mirror Booth is a one of a kind photo-generating product that becomes interactive while taking your picture. This full-length mirror offers a user-friendly interface, and allows guests to interact with it through a touch screen of vibrant animations and entertaining voice guidance. You can even draw on it!

Even cooler? After Mirror Booth has taken your picture, you have the option of either printing out the pictures right there, or sharing them straight to your social media platforms.

If these features alone aren’t enough to convince you that Mirror Booth is a staple at any event, here is a list of reasons why Mirror Booth would be a great addition to any event.

Mitzvah: When it comes to deciding on a theme for your Mitzvah, the sky’s the limit. But what’s great about having Mirror Booth at your Mitzvah is that it will fit within any theme. That’s right! As long as you are looking to entertain your guests and get them excited for the night’s festivities, with Mirror Booth’s sleek design, it will fit within any amazing theme and design concept you have for your party!

Corporate Event: Let’s be honest, sometimes-corporate events can have a negative connotation, because well, they can be boring! Why not add something that will get your guests to interact with one another. It can actually serve as a great way for guests to meet and network. What is also great about Mirror Booth at a corporate event is the option to pick out custom frames. This way, Mirror Booth can fit any corporate theme, either contemporary or traditional.

Wedding: A wedding ceremony is all about two people coming together and making a commitment to one another, but the reception is all about the celebration! With its colorful animations and interactions with guests, Mirror Booth would be an amazing addition to your wedding venue! Guests will have a blast getting a group of friends and family together to take fun and creative pictures with them. It’s a long lasting memory your guests will always have of your wedding day.

Trade Show: Trade shows are always showcasing the latest and greatest products. Vendors are competing to have the booth everyone is talking about and stopping at. One way to ensure yours is the talk of the show is by having Mirror Booth at your stand. As people are walking by your booth, they will be inclined to stop by and check out what the animated mirror is all about. Having Mirror Booth at your stand is one way to ensure you get a lot of attraction and stay top of mind.

Awards Banquet: An awards banquet is a celebration. So be sure to cap off that celebration with a fun picture for everyone to remember! Show off your awards in a fun way by drawing on the mirror and showcasing your hard work; all in a picture to remember for years to come!
