IRRMA to hold Rock the Roof during 2015 Winter Games (Arnold's Park)-The Iowa Rock n Roll Music Association will host a concert at the Majestic Pavilion in Arnold's Park during the 2015 University of Okoboji Winter Games.

Executive Director Doris Welle explains.

"We are having a Winter Games Rock the Roof, and it will take place on that Friday night, January the 23rd in the Pavilion.  We're going to have Black Diamond, that young group that won the Battle of the Bands last year open for about half an hour, from 7:30 to 8, and then from 8 to 10, Sly James and the New City Council will be playing for the dance."

She adds that some familiar faces will take the stage at the event.

"This band, a lot of people are not going to recognize the name of the band, but they're going to know all the players.  You know, you've got Hall of Famers like Shane Von Holdt from Sac City and Kevin King from Des Moines who was in Hot Rod Chevy Kevy and the Upson Downs.  And then you have that fantastic Hammond B3 Organ player, Mark Broderson from Kansas City, that super saxophone player Brian Moore, Tyler Pederson on the drums.  They're just all outstanding entertainers.  So it will be a fun show of good old rock and roll."
