"Rock Off" gives students a chance to break into the music industry.


High school students will bring the rock and Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels will provide the roll for the 26th Annual Tri-C High School Rock Off presented by Live Nation and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Designed to help students jumpstart careers in music performance, marketing, promotion and recording technology, the Tri-C High School Rock Off can make young musicians’ dreams come true.

"We’re honored to sponsor the Tri-C High School Rock Off at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame," said Dominick Montouri, President of Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. "Tri-C students get the opportunity to connect with artists and professionals in meaningful, productive ways. Sometimes all you need is a chance to make it big, and this contest could kick off the career of the next rock superstar!"

The event includes three music performance rounds that will take place Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11, 2023, at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, leading up to The Final Exam on Saturday, Feb. 28, where the "Best Band in The Land" will be named by music and entertainment industry judges.
