RTH Brings 2016 Today’s Bride Show To Another Level!

We loved the 2016 Today’s Bride January bridal shows at The John S. Knight Center and Cleveland’s IX Center! The energy level at every show was beyond contagious. From attendees to exhibitors, everyone genuinely wanted to be there (us especially)! Our team had a blast participating in the shows and meeting hundreds of newly engaged couples from the Cleveland, Akron, Canton and surrounding areas.

The Fashion Show:  

The Today’s Bride fashion shows have become a ‘must-see’ attraction at the Today’s Bride shows and for the past eight years, we have been proud to be their exclusive entertainment and audio-visual partner.

At this year’s’ fashion show, Rock The House’s own DJ Flightz and MC Nick Duvé kept the energy going for both the models and the audiences.  Over 70 fashions from 10 different companies graced this years runway! Spotify even had a spike in tags that day from the audience searching for the amazing mashup mixes we selected.

Our Built-“Up” Booth:   

Now, as an exhibitor, we wanted to stand out from the crowd and be seen from all areas of the convention centers. So, we decided to build UP!  Yes, we were the first two-story exhibit at a Today’s Bride bridal show.

Today's Bride Booth

We incorporated marquee L-O-V-E letters, chandeliers and uplighting to create a fun and unique booth. The DJ spinning tunes on the second floor was the cherry on top (literally)!

The Today’s Bride Show Manager, Jennifer Fyffe, said it best:

“Rock The House, you set your own bar higher every year. This year was no exception. Not only did you win the Best Booth Award, you won Best-in-Show. Truly a show-stopper remembered by all!”

Oh, and the best part of it all? We’ve got it on video! Go ahead, check it out!

Harlem Shake Video by Rock The House

The Latest Dance Trend Hits RTH

Everyone’s in on the Harlem Shake because it’s simple and fun! Cleveland event entertainers, Rock The House, put together a few of our own this weekend.

The first Harlem Shake video we created was at Natalie’s Bat Mitzvah where we provided DJ/MC Entertainment, Lighting, and Party Motivators (dancers) for the evening.

Check out how much fun they had:


When we all came back to the office on Monday, we decided to do our own office version of the song. What do you think?

Atlantic City DJ Expo 2012

Continuing Education in Pursuit of Excellence

Rock The House Entertainment attends a variety of conferences and events all over the country each year. One of the most important trips is to the DJ Expo put on by DJ Times. This year the event was in Atlantic City and Matt, Shawn, and Travis had the opportunity to attend this conference and trade show with some of the best in the entertainment industry in attendance.

Being able to learn from the best in the country means our client’s events will benefit from a larger pool of experience. Upon their return to the office Matt, Shawn, and Travis debriefed the team on what they learned and how we can improve for our clients. This was Travis and Shawn’s first appearance at this conference and their experiences differed because of their unique backgrounds.

As a DJ and MC for over 9 years, Shawn was inspired by watching and listening to the top Masters of Ceremony in the country. Attending the DJ Times 2012 DJ of the Year Competition inspired him to plan on competing in future competitions. Travis recently started with the company as both a Client Cordinator and DJ. A big takeaway for Travis was just how different each client is and ways to get to know them better in order to create a more personalized event.

With over 400 companies and 2,000 in attendance, it was also impressive that Rock The House was able to give back to this community with our combined experience. Shawn even won the freestyle dance competition! One powerful quote from the event really impacted our team: “You have one chance to get the picture right, to capture the emotion, to create the signature moment”. This is why we are committed to always growing and learning…our clients’ events are THAT important.

Northeast Ohio Event Entertainment Company Turns 13

Have 13 years gone by already? Rock The House Entertainment Group has grown from a handful of dedicated DJs in Cleveland to one of the biggest Event Entertainment & Production companies in Northeast Ohio in 13 years.

Our holiday party really reflects the culture of the company. Awards were given and the year was reviewed but at the heart of this night…there was a family who make FUN a priority.
Our team includes experts in DJ / MC Entertainment, Lighting & Sound Production, Photo Booths, & Videography for Weddings and Bar / Bat Mitzvahs as well as Corporate & Fundraisers. If you are interested in YOUR next party being as fun as ours was for ourselves…contact us at

A Rock The House Success Story: Shawn Smutak

Entertainer to Client Coordinator

Nothing makes us more proud than seeing a team member grow with the company; and Shawn Smutak is a great example of that transition. Shawn has been with Rock The House since 2003, and has been a part of some really big transitions that the company made over the last decade. Some of these transitions include two different office expansions, expanding services (event production to include lighting and staging), exponential growth in employees, as well as the addition of a corporate entertainment and production division. These are just some of the ways Rock The House has grown, in-part because of Shawn.

Shawn started with the company as a dancer and DJ, and as Rock The House expanded it’s horizons, Shawn became one of the company’s most requested MCs over time. His ability to take control of an event, work with other vendors, and his commitment to customer service made him a natural leader on events. Beyond his growth in his role as an entertainer, Shawn has achieved an Associate Degree in Interpersonal Communication at the University of Akron with a Minor in Sales Management. It’s this training, coupled with his years of show experience, that made him the right choice for his next role at Rock The House.

Entertainer Rock The House

Shawn has been hired as a part of the full-time staff as a Client Coordinator. Because he has been the leader on hundreds of events with Rock The House, he is uniquely qualified to help guide our clients with their event’s needs. Being in the field as long as Shawn means that he understands what can be achieved and what is best for the integrity of the event. His recommendations come from the point of a true expert.

When asked what the most exciting part of this new position will be for him, Shawn did not hesitate. “The fact that I can now take part in the internal process of all of our events is exciting,” said Shawn. “Communicating with clients more frequently and building strong relationships is going to be really exciting.” We’re excited to be able to be at a point in our evolution that we can offer a real opportunity to our staff to be able to grow with us. Hiring from within is something that makes the management team at Rock The House really proud because it’s a great payoff for those who have sacrificed the most towards the success of our company.

RTH Gives Back – 2012 Solon Relay For Life

18 Hours Running on Hope

Rock The House’s RTH Gives Back Program is dedicated to enhancing our community with our unique skills and assets. There are a wide variety of worthy causes that we give time and resources to because we love our community and we want it to be as strong as it can be.

Once again, Rock The House has provided MCs, sound equipment/production, and entertainment to the Solon Relay For Life. Over $42,000 was raised over the 18 hours of festivities that started on Friday, June 8th and continued straight through to Saturday, June 9th at 11:00 AM! Survivors between the ages of 8 and 80 were on-hand to celebrate with friends and family their success of beating cancer. It really gave hope to all who attended that a cure is possible with more research and money.

Our MCs and dancers were on hand to guide the event through every hour. In addition to keeping the flow of the event moving, Rock The House called on it’s many years experience creating and running games where everyone can be involved. 18 hours is a long time to party but we made it happen! We want to really applaud our team’s efforts because involvement in this event was purely voluntary on their part. When we say we have a commitment to our community we mean EVERYONE! The company gave it’s resources and equipment but these individuals gave up their time (very willingly) and its that level of commitment that makes us proud.

Rock The House Auditions 2012

With another year of growth we face another year of expanding our staff. This year, we took a cue from some of the more popular reality shows for our auditions!

Hosted at Cleveland’s House of Blues, hopeful MCs, DJs, and Dancers went through the first stage of our tryouts with full-time managers, dance captains, and support teams watching, testing, and asking many questions.

We were VERY pleased with the turnout and excited to see that there are many in Cleveland very interested in working for Rock The House clients on events in the future. This was only the first stage, however. Those that made the fist cut were asked to come to the Rock The House headquarters to learn more about the company and meet more of our team. This session was more hands-on and targeted qualities like teamwork,  passion, and customer service skills.

We have some great new talent this year who will be working hand in hand with our senior MCs, DJs, and Dancers. Let us know what type of event entertainment you need for your upcoming Wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, Corporate Event or Fundraiser!
