win tickets to the rock hall ball

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

a few weeks back i had the honor of being asked to be a rock hall ambassador... as in THE rock and roll hall of fame... as in you don't have to ask me twice - sign. me. up.

as a rock hall ambassador part of my job is to tell my fabulous readers about an amazing event that the rock hall is throwing called
the rock hall ball.



to help celebrate the 15th anniversary of the rock and roll hall of fame they are bringing back the now infamous rock hall ball on friday, september 3rd from 8:30pm to 2am.

rock hall ball = big ass fun party


billed as the party of the year this event is sure to sell out not only because of the awesome group of people putting it on but also because of the impressive setting, food, drink, and of course
the music.

this year in regard to music you'll have the pleasure of experiencing some very well received up and coming talent that have recently been blowing up festivals like lollapalooza and garnering much critical acclaim.

Foxy Shazam - don't you just love that name? upon listening to this band and watching their videos i became kinda sorta obsessed, they are so so good and almost Queen like - 'nuff said.

Eli 'Paperboy' Reed - ok this dude is tal-en-ted, i feel like i'm listening to an updated version of motown because his music is fun, soulful and catchy and i simply can't stop tapping my foot when i hear come and get it and (doin' the) boom boom.

DJ Tommie Sunshine - will be closing out the night by spinning his legendary hybrid of rock, pop and electronic music. when i started listening to his remixes i started chair dancing, fact.

there are two ticket options for the rock hall ball and i must admit i adore the fact that there's a $15 option.

platinum ticket, $65 non member/$55 member
- with this ticket the doors open at 8:30 for you
- admission to the museum
- includes heavy appetizers
- open bar (beer and wine) until 12:30am then cash bar till 2am
purchase platinum tickets here

vinyl tickets, $15
- with this ticket the doors open at 10pm for you
- admission to the museum
- includes cash bar and all live entertainment until 2am
purchase vinyl tickets here

another perk of being a rock hall ambassador is that i get a discount promo code to share with you guys.... when purchasing your tickets online enter "AMVIP" to save $5 and get the platinum tickets for $60!

tickets are also available at all ticketmaster locations, the rock hall box office and at the door the day of the event if not sold out.

oh yeah, and two platinum tickets are also available to win here on the plum!

simply leave a comment stating your favorite artist currently inducted in the rock and roll hall of fame and you'll automatically be entered to win two tickets to the rock hall ball.

for a second (and third) entry share this giveaway on twitter (and facebook) and leave another comment(s) telling me you did so with a link to your status update(s).

i'll close comments next thursday the 26th and announce the winner next friday the 27th to allow all you non-winners to still buy tickets to this ultimate rock and rock party - cleveland style.

good luck kids and don't forget to include your contact information if i don't already know how to get a hold of you!

  9. Really hard to pick just one, but I'll say Fleetwood Mac, since they were so much a part of my growing up in the 70s. Rock on!

  20. oh, and now it's Madonna for me. (my dad would not agree.)

  21. Robert Johnson. "Who?" you ask?

    RJ = Delta Blues legend -> Muddy Waters, Elvis -> Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan -> Led Zepplin -> Everything else ever recorded.

    Therefore I say, Robert Johnson.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Eric Clapton is one of the greatest musicians of all time. He is a triple time inductee and an amazing artist.

    He is my favorite by far and I'd LOVE to go to the Rock Hall Ball!! Here's my tweet : )

    DiaDalsky: Definitely Eric Clapton @clevelandsaplum!! He's been inducted into the @rock_hall three separate times http://bit.ly/bqxQ2K

  23. This is a more difficult question than I anticipated! So many great artists that helped shape different parts of my life.

    I'd have to go with Billy Joel. So many fond memories of my teen years involve his greatest hits cd and my friends in Ft. Lauderdale.

    The Eagles are a close second. I can still remember sitting near the tv with my tape recorder, waiting for the mini-series "Desperado" to begin. I couldn't afford the cassette, so I recorded the song from the tv's opening credits!

  24. Well that is easy - Paul McCartney for sure!

  30. This is in no way, shape, or form a fair question. How can I pick just ONE?!? I love alot of the artists/bands in the Rock Hall. I grew up with my parents listening to Elvis and Johnny Cash, so I love them. I'm not ashamed to admit I get happy feet when Michael Jackson is on. Zepplin, Aerosmith and AC/DC are bands I really love listening to. But my absolute favorite (that I'll probably get grilled for) is Lynyrd Skynyrd. Their songs are stories, telling tales of having fun, drinking, fighting, heartbreak, family values, traveling, and so on. The song Simple Man means ALOT to me. It's reminds me of a conversation my great-grandfather and I had not too long before he passed away. And the line "Forget your lust, on the rich man's gold. All you need is in your soul." gives me the chills every time. They have a song for any situation life throws at you, and I love them for that. And yes, I will yell FREEBIRD every once in a while at a local bar to whatever band is playing that night. And a few are all to happy to play it. God I could ramble on for hours about music, but I'll stop right now.

  36. So hard to pick! But... as a Michigan girl, I am going to have to go with Bob Seger. I listened to my dad's old-school record all the time when I was a little one :o)

  37. The Eagles. They are right. I, in fact, can't hide my lyin' eyes.

  40. Oh man, tough call... but the Beatles win me over may-jah-ly.

  41. Ahh! This event is already sold out (on the platinum tix)! Due to a wedding, I missed Twilight at the Zoo and Krusty's so i really hoped we could make it to this.

    There are so many favorite artists that have been inducted, but I have to say that my favorite is Les Paul. I was able to see his tribute, history and see him perform before he passed away. He was such a big influence for so many other inductees.
