Join us on Thursday, May 30 at 7pm for a freewheeling discussion of music memories with Fran and Jules Belkin of Belkin Productions, moderated by Gary Graff.
The duo behind famed production company, which has hosted some of the biggest names in Music in venues in Detroit and Cleveland, will be sharing stories from their 40 years in the music industry.
Fran Belkin's collection of t-shirts wound up in boxes in the attic, until one day she realized these mementos chronicling over thirty years of Cleveland rock and roll history could illustrate the incredible story of a most unusual family business: Belkin Productions.The shirts and swag paint a picture of the times, the music, the bands and the concert promotion company her husband Jules and his brother Mike built into a powerhouse on the national music scene. In Rock This Town!, Fran's collection is artfully woven together with vintage snapshots, concert photography and intimate stories shared by the Belkin Productions crew who lived them. This book is for those of us who were out front, standing drenched in a World Series of Rock downpour, singing along to every word of our favorite song, Bic lighters in the air, screaming for another encore. This is a love letter to every fan of rock and roll.
The event is free, RSVP encouraged by calling 248.644.3556
