FAQs for Parents

How do I get on the list?
Add your name to our Mail Chimp form to the left. You will receive an email with the Rock-n-Romp location a few weeks prior to each show. You can also become a fan on Facebook or subscribe to this blog.

Can I bring my newborn? My toddler? My pre-schooler? My tween? My teenager?
The shows are really designed for kids of all ages, although RnR is not an "all-ages" show. If you think your kids would enjoy this type of event, then by all means bring them! We do recommend bringing earplugs for our littlest rompers.

I don't have kids, but really want to come to a show. Can I?
You MUST be accompanied by a child to attend RnR. If you do not have kids of your own and want to attend, find a niece or a nephew to bring or offer to babysit for a good friend or neighbor. Or sign up to be a volunteer! We always need help. Email

Where/When are the shows held?
Shows are held in different venues throughout the city on Saturday afternoons starting at 2-3pm (and generally running until around 5-6pm). Specific locations and times will be announced prior to each event.

What if it rains?
We will make every effort to go on with the show, rain or shine. We will email and post our back up plans on the blog and Facebook page prior to each show.

Who are you?
Rock-n-Romp was started by a cool mama in DC named Debbie Lee. Memphis Rock-n-Romp was originally brought to you by Kelli & Mike Smith, Chip Chockley, Dan Harper, Wendy Trenthem, Stacey Greenberg, Robby Grant, and Shiloh Barnat.

2011 board members include Stacey Greenberg, Chip Chockley, Marvin Stockwell, Kate & Corey Crowder, Caleb Sweazy, Launa Morris, and Aimee Lewis.

In 2012, we added Jeff Hulett, and Graham & Bianca Burks to the board.

What do parents need to know before attending a show with their kid(s)?
*Parents are expected to be present and to watch their children at all times.
*RnR is not responsible for any injuries sustained by a parent or child while on the premises; you play at your own risk.
*RnR cannot be held responsible for loss of/damage to any personal property while on the premises.
*Parents and children are expected to be kind to, and respectful of, all others present. It is also expected that everyone pick up after themselves, deposit trash in trash cans, and generally be good guests.
*Both parents and children should leave all potentially dangerous or hazardous items at home.
*Parents are asked to bring a blanket, chairs, and/or snacks for their kids. (You may also bring healthy snacks to share with everyone!)
*Central BBQ and Whole Foods will provide snacks free of charge.
*Smoking is not allowed in the immediate RnR space.
*Beer is free to adults of age. We ask that you drink responsibly. RnR reserves the right to "cut you off," call the cops, and/or never invite you to a RnR again if you fail to do so.
*A $5 donation per adult is requested, but not required. The $5 helps cover the cost of sound equipment, bands, insurance, etc. It is not to cover beer or food. We ask that you donate whether you plan to eat or drink.

We are looking forward to our first Rock-N-Romp. If the weather is uncooperative, will we see you this Saturday (4/24) at The Hi Tone?
