Well, you did it again, Cleveland. Another incredible turnout for our community partner, Easter Seals of Northern Ohio. Twenty bands, twenty-three vendors, three comedians, two street-performers, two stages, two bars, and one incredible rock party. That’s what Rock City Festival is all about.
I’d like to thank all of our sponsors and promotional partners:
Fifth-Third Bank, the Chronicle-Telegram, Quaker Steak and Lube, Best Technology, America’s Best Contacts and Eyeglasses, KSD Studios, Rock City Cleveland, Cleveland Music Club, Unite This City, AfterTheGig.com, 87.7 Cleveland’s Sound, Kristin Wilson Online, Jet Signs, Cleveland Whiskey, and Bravo Wellness. Without your support, such an amazing concert series would not have been possible.
I’d also like to thank our board:
Gregory Boehnlein from The Chromes, Adrienne Kruzer from KSD Studios, Ginny Valentik from Slowback Gin, Denise Roe from Easter Seals, and Kendall Embrescia from 87.7 Cleveland’s Sound.
And to our volunteer staff: Kristen, Kelly, Dale, Buck, Katie, Renee, Charlie, Bernie, and Nanci. And to our bazaar vendors who had some of the most amazing products for sale! And to the media outlets that gave us such favorable coverage: The Chronicle-Telegram, Cleveland Scene, Avon Press, WEOL Radio, The Morning Journal, WEOL Radio, and of course 87.7.
Bigtime kudos to our stage production contractors: Scott Franz Sound and Accurate Sound and Lighting.
And of course, big thanks to all the VIPs who made this thing a big deal: Archie from 87.7 Cleveland’s Sound, Fox 8′s Todd Meany, Elyria Councilman Marcus Madison, and Lorain County Commissioner Ted Kalo.
To Mike Ellis and crew at Result Films, and to Mark Bakst at LCCC, thank you.
Finally, hats off to the incredible performers who brought the love the entire time: Dan Miraldi, The Chromes, Emily Keener Band, Switchblade Scarlett, Samantha Fitzpatrick, Midlife Chryslers, MofoFlo, Four Block Empire, Dan Robertson, Lauren Lanzaretta, Ramon Rivas and Friends, Slowback Gin, Jimmi Chance, Jay Guerrero, Silverlights, Misty Gonzales, Welshly Arms, Pout, and The Floorwalkers.
And of course all our friends and family for putting up with our nonstop promoting for the last eight months. Don’t worry, though. You only have four more months before you start hearing me in promo mode again.
God Bless and Thanks!
