Last month, RTHAV partnered with State Industrial Products for their most recent sales conference. While their headquarters are based out of Cleveland, State Industrial’s products are utilized all over North America, and their sales departments stretch to the far ends of the United States. With such a diverse sales team coming together in one place, and over 100 years worth of business in the books, our team knew they certainly had their work cut out for them with this event.
Taking place every two years, this 3-day conference consisted of many different seminars and activities for State Industrial employees. The first two days were all business, as guests attended various sales meetings and breakout sessions to continue building up their skill set and sales repertoire. While this may sound like any old company retreat so far, attendees were in awe of the spectacle that awaited them inside the Grand Ballroom of the Cleveland Renaissance Hotel. RTHAV’s skilled lighting designers used several-colored washes to add character to the massive space, which were programmed to move on various cues between presentations and during the awards banquet that took place on the second night of the conference. RTHAV also overtook the stage, equipping it with a gigantic 18′ x 32′ AV Stumpfl projection screen to display various media such as PowerPoint presentations, videos, and more from a Christie Boxer 4K30 projector. A lectern was also centered on the stage for keynote speakers, whose message bellowed through the speaker stacks that hung above and made it so all guests could hear no matter where they were seated in the room.
After the closing remarks and final breakout sessions on the 3rd day, it became clear that there was only one thing left to do… have a good time! As guests filed back into the main room, they were greeted with a wide assortment of giant, classic games like Connect Four, Light Brite, and even a 13′ Foosball Table that allowed for over a dozen players at once! RTHAV also supplied a coinless-claw machine filled with party favors, our signature 4-player Rock Shots Basketball, our virtual SportsZone gaming system and a photo booth with customized props. The final celebration was capped off with music by our own DJ, Mattitude, mixing live for a vibrant dance floor on our all-new Touch Screen DJ System.
Focused around the theme “Inspire”, it was clear that the message of the conference resonated with State Industrial employees as they headed home that Sunday evening. After a long weekend filled with excitement, fun, and necessary business, the entire State Industrial management team was relieved to know that this imperative conference was truly a great success. That wondrous feeling is surely one of the many reasons that the company chose to work with RTHAV once again after years of continued service. A direct result of our team’s attention to detail, dedication to their work, and their ability to not only get a job done… But get it done well!
Each year, the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) holds an annual fundraiser in which elite members of Cleveland’s community come together to support the arts. This affair, also known as the MOCA Gala, is a night full of laughter, conversation, and delicious food provided by Marigold Catering. Returning as proud production partners for the past 3 years, it was our distinct pleasure to provide audio, video, and lighting services for this year’s MOCA Gala!
As event professionals who know the impact lighting can make on an event, Rock The House Audio Visual aspired to design a clean look associated with the gala’s main theme; “LEAP”. Led by Founder/CEO Matt Radicelli, the RTHAV team wasted no time designing a sky-like atmosphere, illuminating the normally-white room with light blue accent lighting, dabbled with the occasional cloud or two. This was accomplished using uplighting and gobos mounted from overhead support beams, and the final look left the white room appearing to have painted walls, with no distinguishable lighting sources viewable from the entrance.
In addition to lighting, Rock The House Audio Visual also provided audio and video services, allowing key speakers to present with ease, as an overhead projector displayed visuals that may be relevant to any of the presentations throughout the gala. Truly a night to remember, RTHAV would like to thank all guests in attendance who came to show their support, as well as the staff of the Cleveland MOCA, and everyone else who made the event possible.

AAble Rents, known for its elaborate tent and event rentals, pulled out all of the stops (with a little help from Rock The House) for its unveiling of LOFT1365 in Cleveland.
The AAble After Hours Party showcased a multi-million dollar renovation of AAble Rents headquarters. The event all went down after the WOW Awards, with more than 250 special event industry friendors in attendance.
The theme of the night was a Miami nightclub, and that’s exactly what was created. Rock The House brought in 25,000 Watts of sound and provided a stunning and vibrant light show, video projection mapping, a Mirror Photo Booth, SocialCast, and a club-style DJ. You’d have to see it to believe it. Check out the video below!
Guests couldn’t even tell they were in a warehouse once the lights went down and the music started. The rest of the night, guests enjoyed food, including Barrio Tacos, a food truck, drinks, and plenty of music and dancing.
A big shout out to our colleagues and friends who made the night a huge success: L’Nique, DonutLab, David Corey Photography, Event Source, Superior Speedie Portable Services, Barrio Tacos, and Piccadilly Artisan Creamery!

With our very own Cleveland Cavaliers marching their way through the NBA playoffs, families and friends all over Greater Cleveland are coming together to cheer on our team.
As we all know, a night out at any sporting event can be VERY costly. From tickets, to transportation, food, and beverages, a simple night out can turn into a credit card on a respirator with a hole burnt in your pocket (and soul).
All of that “moolah” spent on a night out for two? Why not allocate and relocate the fandom and host a viewing party that ALL your friends and family can enjoy?
RTHAV is seasoned in the art of throwing parties. Let us tell you how to throw the BEST sports viewing party EVER that the neighborhood will never stop talking about.
Light Up The Night
Illuminate your home with your team colors. That way, there is no room for misunderstanding where the party is. Your guests will not only arrive at your party with no problems but also feel the team spirit even before walking in!
The Bigger, The Better
Turn your home into your own personal viewing theater and rent a huge LED monitor for your guests. Your once “average” viewing party with a 40-inch TV is taken to a whole new level when your home turns into a professional theater with a 70-inch viewing screen.
Let’s Get Loud
Blow your guests’ minds (and not your speakers) by having a team of professionals install top-of-the-line surround sound in your home for the game. The sound system will bring the “just walked into the stadium” feeling straight to your home. You’ll get to feel as if you are at the game while enjoying the comfort of sitting on your own couch. Seems like a win-win in our book!
Take Things Outside
Don’t want to mess up the entire house with people trafficking in and out? That’s ok. Set up your watch party in a tent in your yard. Your guests will enjoy themselves in a new and exciting setting and you won’t worry about footprints tracking through your home from travel throughout the house.
The Whole Nine Yards
Can’t find a sitter? Don’t panic. The kids can be entertained by renting giant, interactive games to play with during the big game. That way, mom and dad can enjoy their time and no child is left bored. Seldom can parents drag their kids to an “adult” party that they will enjoy, but life-size tic-tac-toe brings the fun for kids of all ages (including the adults)!
How do you execute a party to such a degree? Don’t fret, because when it comes to execution, Rock The House always nails it. Let us provide products and assist you while you throw the best viewing party of the season in the comfort of your own home!
JACK Thistledown Racino unveiled some fresh additions at its grand opening event at its North Randall location, and Rock The House had the pleasure of producing this corporate event. The night was a great success as JACK showed off its $70 million expansion, including new restaurants (pasta bar anyone?), a sports bar, and even a plant wall.
From the custom beach balls and Mardi Gras beads to the rotating gobos featuring the JACK logo on the ceiling, not a detail was missed at this event.
Rock The House ensured everyone was greeted at the entrance by aerialists and a piano player, along with special red lighting to go with Jack’s new color pallet.
Throughout the night, guests were anxiously excited to try out the photo section, where they had the chance to strike a pose on a bright red couch while trying on an array of props, including hats, sunglasses and champagne bottles. Guests were able to get creative with their friends, family, and co-workers while our friend, Dale McDonald took their picture to commemorate the fun night!
The new additions to the JACK are just the first of many. Rock The House was honored to be a part of showing off the new racino and all it has to offer to Northeast Ohio. We can’t wait for more to come!
