The Ballast Band and StonesThrow will perform live, along with other special musical guests.  The Ballast Band has been popular with local audiences for the past few years with several sell-out events, and the acoustic duo Jeff Green and Eddie Terrell of StonesThrow have delighted fans with their excellent musicianship and harmonies.
 
“Rock ’n Rotary has had a huge turnout and overwhelmingly positive response for the past two years,” said Robin Sukhai, event co-chair.  “Based on that, you can expect an even bigger, better event this year.”   
 
The Ballast Band’s home-grown music is rock ’n roll with a hint of blues and funk.  The Ballast Band will also perform popular cover songs from other musicians, including Elvis, Simon and Garfunkel, Tom Petty and Van Morrison.  “For Rock ’n Rotary, we will have something for everyone,” said Rotary Club and Band member Ken Gibson.  
 
Ballast Band members are Charles Records, bass guitar and vocals; Dr. Frank West, keyboards and vocals; Matt Williams, guitar and vocals; and Ken Gibson, drums.    
 
Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame sponsors for the event are Chesapeake Bank and Chesapeake Wealth Management.  Other sponsors include  GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys,  Larry Arntz, and Shadeworks.
