About the Resident Rockers Program
Resident Rockers is the Rock Halls summer artist in residence program, sponsored by The Kulas Foundation. In its second year the program focuses on up and coming musicians from the Northeast Ohio area. During their summer with us, the artists perform regularly on our plaza, spend time writing songs and developing their musical skills. Additionally they meet with industry professionals from around the country to learn about all facets of the music business, including marketing, merchandising, copywriting and publishing, PR and more. By the end of the program they will have tangible tools and resources, along with improved skills, that they can take with them to move to the next level of their music careers.
During our summer of live music the Resident Rockers will be performing each week, come listen to them play at the Rock Hall. Tunes are free and no RSVP is required.
