This July, the eyes of the world will be set upon Cleveland, Ohio – with the Republican National Convention taking place there. Those who will experience history being made that week will get to experience the magic of the city with a historic night of fun and entertainment titled Cleveland Rocks 2016! The extravaganza is produced by Blue Star Productions, LLC in conjunction with the Green Beret Foundation, The Folded Flag Foundation, The Guardians of Heroes Foundation, OH Fallen Heroes, and ST9, with those charities receiving proceeds from the event.
On Thursday, July 21, the week will come to an end for those in attendance, but it ends with a bang! For the evening’s festivities, called “Wheels Up,” Kid Rock – one of the most electrifying musicians in the world – will show off his musical virtuosity performing with his incredible Twisted Brown Trucker Band. The singer, a native of Detroit, has sold a staggering twenty six million albums since breaking onto the scene in the 1990s. Other hit albums in the Kid Rock catalog include Cocky (2001), Rock and Roll Jesus (2007), and Born Free (2010). He has had success on the Pop, Country, and R&B charts with a variety of artists, ranging from Sheryl Crow to Martina McBride to R. Kelly. His most recent work is 2015’s “First Kiss.”
A longtime supporter of veterans from all branches of the military, the musical icon says he’s glad to be able to participate in an event that gives back to a group that has given so much to Americans.
Robert Jennings, Executive Producer of Cleveland Rocks 2016, says that he’s excited about the event, which he thinks fans should support – regardless of party affiliation. “I think veterans’ issues are something all Americans should rally around which is why we’re working with major artists to carry that message to Cleveland and Philadelphia. Our activities support nationally recognized, small non-profits that work on the ground with active duty service members and their families and the veterans of America’s military. We thank artists like Kid Rock who are willing to stand up for vets no matter which way the wind blows, and we’re looking forward to spending time with the leaders and grassroots of both parties in Cleveland and Philadelphia.”
The concert will feature gourmet catering, plus an open bar in addition to various VIP enhancements. There will also be daily special event space available to suit along with catered hospitality suite and a premium cigar bar. Beer during the week will be provided by the Ohio Craft Brewers Assn, and Premium Cigar Ass’n Cigar Tent in partnership with Makers Mark.
