PARTY ROCK PROJECT

The Party Rock Project is a show unlike anything you have ever experienced. Somewhere in between an rock/pop concert, intimate piano bar, multimedia visuals, laugh-out-loud comedy, and competitive audience participation is The Party Rock Project.
Audiences walk away having laughed hysterically, reminisced, sung together, and been amazed with the stand-alone talent.
