Get Ready to Rock ‘n Roll All Night

By Tim Denman - 01/12/2017
The NRF tradition continues. This year marks the 8th annual RIS News’ Rock & Roll Retail event. Come see your peers take to the stage to display their musical talents in what is always one of the most exciting retail events of the year.

This year’s event will once again take place at the Hard Rock CafÉ in Times Square. The festivities will kick off at 8:30 pm on January 16 and the three bands will keep on rocking till midnight. The jam session is a great place to let your hair down and relax after a busy day walking the NRF Big Show Floor.
