The Sun Spot Tanning Salon’s Rock n’ Roll House Party 19 is coming to the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. on April 7, 2018.

One of the greatest groups of Motown, “The Four Tops”, will grace the stage once again with their hits, “Baby I Need Your Loving,” “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” “It’s the Same Old Song,” “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing in the Shadows of Love,” and so many more. With sixteen top 20 songs to their credit on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, the evening is sure to be filled with incredible music and an unforgettable performance.

The Hometown Radio’s Rock n’ Roll House Party, Shawnee State University and Dr. Jon Lucas, owner of Sun Spot Tanning salons, are proud to have this annual performance. It is a profit-free show completely supported by the many great sponsors and ticket sales. According to the show’s annual promoter and producer, R.J. Kaltenbach, the Rock n’ Roll House Party has become one of the longest running tributes to original rock music in the country.

The evening will kick off with the annual “Rock n’ Roll House Pre-Party” at 5 p.m. broadcasting live on MIX 99.3 in the lobby of the VRCFA. Opening for “The Four Tops” this year is Lucasville’s own “The Josh Stewart Band.” Oscars Restaurant at the Holiday Inn will host the after-party immediately following the show. D.J. “Franky Frank” will provide music and fun for the night.
