Suits That Rock set Carnegie performance dates for 10th anniversary ‘Decade of Greatest Hits’

Suits That Rock is back and celebrating 10 years of performing for a cause. On Saturdays, June 17 and 24, forty local business and community leaders will take to the Otto M. Budig stage at The Carnegie for Suits That Rock X: A Decade of Greatest Hits.

Each year Suits performers leave the boardroom behind to get on stage and raise money for youth arts education programming at The Carnegie. Over the past 10 years, concerts have raised $683,569 and that money has made a huge impact:

·  More than 316,000 arts education hours provided to students,
·  More than 30,000 students impacted,
·  More than 60 schools and organizations involved.

“It’s been an incredible 10 years of concerts from Suits That Rock, and they keep getting better and better,” said Katie Brass, Executive Director of The Carnegie. “We’re so thankful for the generosity the Suits have shown to The Carnegie and the impact they’ve had on countless children in our programs.”

In honor of the 10-year milestone, the Suits will pay homage to past performances bringing back their greatest hits including songs such as Hotel California, Lady Marmalade, and Smooth. They’ll also add 13 new songs to the list including Can’t Stop the Feeling, Edge of Seventeen, and You Belong With Me.

While the core roster of Suits remains the same from year to year, each year a handful of guest Suits join the lineup. Joining this year are Rick Dews, Global Senior Category Manager, Strategic Sourcing for Milacron; Steve Tebeau, President of InnerCircle; Matt Godsted, Assistant Vice President, Western & Southern Financial Group; and Brent Seelmeyer, President, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati.

“This year’s show once again offers a divers collection of high energy songs – more than half are crowd favorites from the nine shows, but we are adding quite a few bonus tracks that we think will be future greatest hits,” said John Domaschko, Suits That Rock co-founder. “With all that and some great guest Suits, it’s no wonder that Suits That Rock are having more fun than ever!”

Tickets to Suits That Rock X: A Decade of Greatest Hits are $60 for Mezzanine, $85 for Orchestra, per person (reserved seat), and include a commemorative Suits That Rock mug, light bites, and of course a rockin’ good time. A cash bar and valet parking will be available. Doors open at 7 p.m. each evening with performances kicking off at 8 p.m.

Tickets will be available starting Tuesday, May 16 by calling The Carnegie Box Office at (859) 957-1940 (Tues – Fri, noon – 5pm) or online at www.thecarnegie.com.
