“Hotel Carolina will be a dream weekend for fans of great live music,” says Rock Ridge Music President Jason Spiewak. “We’re expecting some awesome jams, and with so many great artists in one room at the same time, amazing things are bound to happen. We’re proud of the line-up for this, our first event.”
