High School ROCK Off

Posted on April 1, 2010 in All Posts

2009 was a great year for Rock The House and Live Nation. On both Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, we brought The Rock The House Party Pavilion to both The 18th Annual Marc’s Great American Rib Cook-Off & Music Festival and Taste of Cleveland.

Rock The House started 2010 off with a Bang as well when Barry Gable from Live Nation requested our presence at the 2010 Tri-C High School Rock Off. Throughout the months of January and February, 19 of North-Eastern Ohio’s up-and-coming musicians came together to put on live performances at The House of Blues.

At Rock The House, we believe strongly in music education and loved supporting these talented young musical groups.

Jeff Kutz, our VP of Sales and Headlining Entertainer says:

I was overwhelmed by how gifted the young performers were. These high-schoolers represent one of the most talented groups of musicians I have ever seen live. I loved working and emceeing the event. Working with sponsors such as Live Nation, Kiss FM, Tri-C, Ohio Natural Gas and House of Blues was a thrill and an honor.

At the event finale on February 7, Maddie Finn won the grand prize and also was named the first female- fronted band to ever to win The High School Rock-Off.
