Nashville’s Hard Rock Cafe reopens with a week long series of events designed to highlight the club’s re-opening and help support some worthy charities. In partnership with the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, Hard Rock’s celebration will also include the first annual Music City Bash on Broadway, featuring a performance by Rodney Atkins and Friends and a Guitar Drop® at midnight to ring in 2010!
Committed to its “Love All, Serve All” creed, Hard Rock will donate proceeds from the events to some very special charities, including The Felix Organization, the Arthritis Foundation and WHY (World Hunger Year).
2009 Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and supporting acts November and Broken Frame will kick off the event series on December 28th. On Tuesday, December 29th, the newly remodeled Nashville cafe will host An Evening with Bucky Covington, presented by ASCAP, followed by a special performance by Sweethearts of the Rodeo on Wednesday December 30th. For the main event, Hard Rock Cafe Nashville is also proud to present Music City’s Bash on Broadway, a free street party on New Year’s Eve which will include performances by Gabe Dixon, The Dirt Drifters, Tommy Sims & Friends with special guests Marc Broussard and Jonny Lang and headliner Rodney Atkins, as well as an 80-foot Guitar Drop and fireworks at midnight.
The music doesn’t stop once the New Year’s Eve festivities are over. On Friday, January 1st, enjoy an acoustic night with Carrie Zaruba, JD Shelburne, Sweatervest, Jason Duke, Amanda Price, Mijo and Brian Ashley Jones. Finally, Hard Rock Cafe Nashville will close out the week-long re-opening celebration with a showcase of local rock acts, featuring After Elvis, Adalene, The Worsties & Caprice on January 2nd.
