Founder Corky Byer has been dreaming about creating a focused and upscale autograph show for Rock n Roll for over thirty years.  He has been an avid autograph collector since he was a teenager, and has over 7000 pieces of signed memorabilia in his collection.  “I want every fan, whether a veteran collector or first-time autograph seeker, to feel like I did when I got my first signature.  I still remember the thrill of meeting the artist, and how special I felt being a part of the rock music scene,” says Corky.  “Over the years, as an avid Rock n Roll fan, I have seen that there is a real absence of Rock n Roll autograph events and I wanted to change that.  I believe in paying it forward and wanted this event to support saving lives through the efforts at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”

The show will open Friday night September 13, free and open to the public, with vendors and sponsors only from 5-10 pm (no artist will be on the floor signing autographs).  Friday night includes a Battle of the Bands and some celebrity teaser performances, including Artimus Pyle and Bob Burns playing Lynyrd Skynryd classics, as well as Jennifer Batten, famed guitarist for Michael Jackson, doing a tribute to the King of Pop.  Entry is limited to the first 1300 people to arrive.

Doors will be open Saturday and Sunday, September 14 and 15, from 9 am to 5 pm, with artists on the floor from 10 am to 5 pm.  One-day tickets, two-day passes and special VIP guest passes including a VIP private party are available.  Artists will sign personal photos, cd’s, rock memorabilia, collectible guitars, drumheads and other items while vendors, sponsors and partners will be on-hand, with lots of great media opportunities and star performances.

St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer and visionary, Danny Thomas, on his belief that “No child should die in the dawn of life.” Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago.

About The Rock n Roll Autograph Show

Founded in 2012, the mission of The Rock n Roll Autograph Show is to pay it forward while celebrating the music of our time.

About St. Jude Children’s Research Center

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since opening more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent by 2020. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.  Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation. Through the generous support of donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries we make so one child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide. There is no place like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
