Tickets are now on sale for the annual R.O.P.E. Luncheon with the stars. This year's event will be held on Tuesday, June 6 2017 at the Nashville Palace from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person.
The Luncheon features several of our legends joining for Meet 'n Greet with the fans, lunch and a show. Our show is one of the highlights of the week for country music fans. This show is open to the public......so please feel free to join us for a wonderful morning of good food, great music and wonderful entertainment.
WHAT IS R.O.P.E.?
"Mr. Webster tells us that a 'rope' is a thick, strong cord made of several strands twisted together."
To us music folks it is a good, strong group of folks in the entertainment industry that keeps them united in fellowship, camaraderie and making it a 'rope' of great folks.
R.O.P.E. (which stands for the Reunion of Professional Entertainers) began one evening in May of 1983 when forty-three folks in the music industry got together to discuss the idea of having an organization. Prior to the organizing of R.O.P.E., generally the only times these folks were together was to either work and/or attend the funeral/visitation for a fellow comrade. Wanting to correct this situation was the beginning of this great organization that is known as R.O.P.E., International.
Like Webster's rope that is made of several strands, our 'R.O.P.E.' is made of many different fields of the music and entertainment industry. Our membership roster includes artists, musicians, songwriters, record producers, booking agents, record promoters, disc jockeys and music business executives. Some are retired while many are still very active in their respective field. Our members represent many years of musical and entertainment history.
