Rocky Wall Productions

Rocky Wall Productions

Rocky Wall Productions is a Minnesota 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established for the purpose of producing high quality live Americana Music outdoor concerts, house concerts and events in the City of Silver Bay and on Lake Superior's North Shore. We are also committed to providing resources to assist in the design and construction of an outdoor performance stage in Silver Bay, MN.

In our first three years of operation, we successfully produced twenty-one very successful live outdoor concerts attracting nearly 8,000 attendees over the course of three concert seasons.

We have received positive feedback from the community and visitors alike. People have been attracted to downtown Silver Bay on late summer Friday nights, and we have created awareness of the emerging City Center Park.

In 2024, we look forward to providing eight late summer free Friday night concerts known as the 2024 Silver Bay Music in the Park Concert Series, six ticketed Saturday evening Rocky Wall Benefit House Concerts featuring the visiting musicians in a more intimate setting, and working with the community for design the new City Center Park and Amphitheater.
