"The Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Inc., is a non-profit organization that exists to educate visitors, fans, and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock and roll music. It carries out its mission through its operation of a world class museum that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets this art form through its library and archives as well as its educational programs."

Rock band, Exhibit A came together in January 2010. Its members made up of employees of The Rock Hall, consisting of 14 musicians and singers. Their debut performance in April, 2010 was at the Brother’s Lounge in Cleveland. They have also opened for Southside Johnny at the Cleveland Rib Cook-off and appeared on the Fox 8 Morning Show.

Exhibit A's set list includes selections sure to please everyone. You’ll hear songs from 50’s classics to The Beatles, Rolling Stones, CCR, Blondie, ZZ Top, Lynrd Skynrd and more. During a recent closed rehearsal, a few of us were lucky to attend, we heard, to name a few, such hits as "I Love Rock-n-Roll", "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Hound Dog". "Hound Dog" was particularly interesting because they did a slower, bluesy rendition comparable to Big Mama Thornton’s original 1952 #1 hit, rather than the more recognizable Elvis Presley ’56 chart topper.

If you see Exhibit A scheduled at a local venue, you'll definetely want to save the date!

The group continues to support the Museum's mission through their performances.
