When the Drew Carey Show premiered in 1995, its title song, the 1979 hit Cleveland Rocks by Ian Hunter, became an anthem for a city that has local fare and international recognition. This city hosted the first rock and roll concert, the Moondog Coronation Ball. It is home to ethnic neighborhoods and foods; features the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra; has the largest theatre district outside of New York, Playhouse Square; and is home to sports teams and a submarine. This is the birthplace of Superman. We’ve got world class museums and parks. So, what are you waiting for? Bring your interpretive talents to a city that knows how to ROCK!
