Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum “It’s Only Rock and Roll”

The BIG annual benefit for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, “It’s Only Rock and Roll,” was a rockin’ good time! The featured performers were Daryl Hall and John Oates, who sounded as good as they did 30 years ago. The duo was inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. Public Auditorium’s upper-level seating sold out for the show with 5,000 fans, and an additional 1,000 VIP guests were on the main floor

The VIP party started three hours before the Hall & Oates concert, with live music provided by The Connection, a terrific rising rock and roll band out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The fun and wildly colorful, ’60s-themed décor was created by Joe Mineo. Food stations, prepared by Executive Caterers, were excellent and creatively displayed. The live auction featured unique packages, such as a two-week internship at “Rolling Stone” magazine and two tickets to next year’s star-studded annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in NYC, which went for $29,000!

The event co-chairs were Julia Pollock and Terri Weinberg. Opening remarks were made by Greg Harris, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum president and CEO, who said that since the Rock Hall opened 19 years ago, it has had a $2 billion impact on the local economy. He was followed by Paul Clark, regional president of PNC Bank, the evening’s presenting sponsor. “It’s Only Rock and Roll” 2014 raised a record $800,000! Proceeds will benefit the Rock Hall’s award-winning educational programming. STORY BY CAROLINE R. MERK/PHOTOGRAPHS BY ROBERT MULLER
