The short story
Rocking the Valley first went online in January of 2014 on Prolifick radio. It ran for sixteen months as a one hour show with various talk guests and recordings of their music.
In May of 2015, the show moved to the Jetport, maintaining the talk show format until December of 2015, where we became the first streaming video show in the Valley. Multiple spin offs of the show increased our overall audience. Plus several changes of venue to improve stages and to simply change up the show.
Rocking the Valley has won the Outstanding Cable/Internet Broadcast award from the Greater Lehigh Valley Music Awards for 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. This category was created in 2016 because our show and other's like it did not have our own category.
To date, Rocking the Valley has had over 600 acts representing most types of music in the Lehigh Valley. We have also presented magicians, comedians, conversation guests, cooks, and special awareness shows. The board of the Greater Lehigh Valley Music Association has appeared on the show almost from it's beginning.
Rocking the Valley has ties with many other groups in the valley, outside the musician world, which enable us to attract the greatest audience to our shows. Currently, we are represented in every community along the Route 22 Corridor, The Slate Belt, Poconoes, and the Coal Region.
We are Rocking the Valley.
