Rock The House Entertainment Group, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of Zone Entertainment, a boutique entertainment company specializing in Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and school dances.

This announcement marks a significant benchmark in the history of both companies and is consistent with the goals and trajectories of their individual growth. Rock The House and Zone Entertainment have very similar beginnings making the perfect storm for this partnership. Both companies have shown mutual respect over the years with very open dialogue.

Rock The House Entertainment Group, Inc. is the parent company that owns and operates the Rock The House, Selective Sound Entertainment, and now the Zone Entertainment brands within Northeast and Central Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.

Rock The House, an industry leading event production and entertainment company has rapidly grown since its inception in 1999. Rock The House has been recognized by the International Special Events Society, CBC Magazine, SBN Magazine, and Today’s Bride Magazine for unparalleled creativity and commitment to world-class customer service.

Founded in 2006 by Jeff Dick, Zone Entertainment has quickly become an entertainment leader in Northeast Ohio specializing in youth-based social events. Throughout the past seven years, Zone Entertainment has achieved a dedicated clientele, including many of Northeast Ohio’s largest public and private educational institutions, and exceptional growth in the areas of Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations.

As a boutique entertainment company, Zone Entertainment has prided itself in its ability to custom tailor each event to meet their guests’ specific needs, an extensive staff training program, and groundbreaking creativity within the special-events market. None of that will change; Zone Entertainment will continue to operate as an independent brand within the Rock The House family of companies with Jeff Dick remaining as President and overseeing all day-to-day operations.

Rock The House will independently continue as an industry leader promoting the RTH-branded, youth-based events inclusive of educational events, Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations, and community events. Rock The House will also further its agenda to expand operations and design efforts within the Corporate/Non-profit, Wedding, Production, Rental, Retail, and Installation divisions of Rock The House.

While both brands will operate independently within their respective locations, this acquisition will lead to higher quality and increased efficiency for clients of both brands. Through an expansion of specialty products and services, shared operational resources, and combined creative collaboration, both Rock The House and Zone Entertainment look forward to continuing to exceed clients’ expectations and bring new and reimagined special-event concepts to our region.

Matt Radicelli, Founder/Owner of Rock The House:

“While participating in the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program, I saw an inspiring quote: ‘Anyone that can be your competitor, can be your partner’. Over the last several years, Jeff has built a first-class company that is well respected in the event community. We look forward to fostering Zone’s continued growth. All of our clients will benefit from this acquisition… more energy, more diversity, and more creativity.”

Jeff Dick, Founder/President of Zone Entertainment:

“Both Rock The House and Zone have extremely talented professionals on each crew and bringing the teams together will create an ultimate recipe for success, innovation, and opportunity.”

“Keeping our guests’ best interests in mind, we are excited to be able to offer all of the positives this collaboration has to offer, while keeping the personal touch the brand has become known for. Zone will now be able to further expand its offerings to include RTH-exclusive products and services, provide a larger backup network if/when needed, and accelerate growth of the Zone brand and quality with the added resources Rock The House has to offer.”

A Prom To Remember 2013

A Magical Night of Hope

Rock The House is really proud to have helped create “A Prom To Remember” on April 5, 2013 at The Ritz Carlton. A Prom to Remember‘s mission is to provide the ultimate prom experience for teens who have been affected by cancer. Their goal is not only to provide them something incredible to look forward to, but also to give them an experience that will give them lasting memories. This event that helps provide hope, strength and inspiration.

We’re very excited that many Cleveland businesses offered their services to help make this event one of the best proms anyone could hope for. Guests arrived via limo to a red carpet walk where they had their photos taken and were interviewed by WJW/Fox 8 reporter Kristi Capel. Attendees ages ranged from 12 to 19 with a number of guests making repeat appearances. Cleveland Browns players Greg Little and Dan Gronkowski were both on hand to hang out and play games with the students as just one of the surprises this event had in store for the guests.

Thanks to Jane Knausz, Prom Chair, for these kind words on our participation:

“Thanks so much for DJing Prom 2014.  I got a lot of good comments about the music, etc.  You are a welcome addition to our team!  As you could see, the kids had a great time.  I was very comfortable with your music selection.  And I did hear you making announcements about eating and hydrating!  That was perfect.  The kids have so much fun, they forget about that.  And with their health, it is really important they take care of themselves.”

All of us at Rock The House are excited that we had the opportunity to provide the entertainment and lighting for this important event. Being able to do what we excel at for worthy recipients is at the heart of our RTH Gives Back program.

RTH Gives Back – 2012 Solon Relay For Life

18 Hours Running on Hope

Rock The House’s RTH Gives Back Program is dedicated to enhancing our community with our unique skills and assets. There are a wide variety of worthy causes that we give time and resources to because we love our community and we want it to be as strong as it can be.

Once again, Rock The House has provided MCs, sound equipment/production, and entertainment to the Solon Relay For Life. Over $42,000 was raised over the 18 hours of festivities that started on Friday, June 8th and continued straight through to Saturday, June 9th at 11:00 AM! Survivors between the ages of 8 and 80 were on-hand to celebrate with friends and family their success of beating cancer. It really gave hope to all who attended that a cure is possible with more research and money.

Our MCs and dancers were on hand to guide the event through every hour. In addition to keeping the flow of the event moving, Rock The House called on it’s many years experience creating and running games where everyone can be involved. 18 hours is a long time to party but we made it happen! We want to really applaud our team’s efforts because involvement in this event was purely voluntary on their part. When we say we have a commitment to our community we mean EVERYONE! The company gave it’s resources and equipment but these individuals gave up their time (very willingly) and its that level of commitment that makes us proud.

Rock Your Prom 2012 – Cleveland’s Best DJ / MC Team

Rock Your Prom 2012

Our first Rock Your Prom campaign has been a big success. We couldn’t be happier with the result of attention this has received due, in large part, to our partner 96.5 KISS FM Cleveland. KISS FM was the best type of partner we could ask for and we are excited to expand our already great relationship. We would also like to thank American Commodore Tuxedos for sponsoring this promotion. They had the insight to get on board for the first year of this and we’re hoping students take advantage of their services.

The winner will be announced Wednesday, March 14. We would like to thank everyone who voted and organized other voters.

We will be posting the big announcement very soon!
