Rock and Roll Appraisal Event at Hard Rock Casino Dec. 3 in Florida Gary Sohmers, who appears as an appraiser on PBS's ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, will be welcoming the public to bring music memorabilia to the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood FL Dec. 3 for a free verbal appraisal
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - HOLLYWOOD, FL… South Florida has long been known for yielding buried treasure, including millions of dollars in gold and silver unearthed from the Atocha off the coast of Key West.
On Saturday, December 3, in what could be music to many collectors’ ears, Gary Sohmers, who appears as an appraiser in Collectibles, Memorabilia, and Toys on the Emmy-nominated hit PBS television program “Antiques Roadshow,” holds court at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino from 11:00 – 4:00 pm. He will evaluate and appraise the personal rock and roll treasures hidden away in South Florida attics, curio cabinets and memento drawers.
According to Susan O’Connell, Vice President of Marketing, it’s a terrific opportunity to be a part of rock and roll history. “Who knows? Maybe someone has a long lost Beatles’ tape, a neckpiece worn by Elvis, or a Woodstock wonder. Gary Sohmers will offer his personal insight and appraisals to give people an idea of what their collectible is worth,” she said.
Sohmers is known in the collecting world as “The King of Pop Culture.” He operates Wex Rex Collectibles in Massachusetts in addition to producing and hosting his own syndicated talk radio show, “Calling All Collectors.” His fascination and interest in collecting stems from his father’s passion for campaign buttons. He has been a featured guest on television and radio programs for more than 30 years and is a frequent lecturer on pop culture at Universities, historical societies, and antiques shows.
Sohmers encourages everyone to bring any items related to rock and roll for discussion and evaluation. “Do you own an autograph you received in person, a record you believe is rare, Kiss or Beatles toys or old concert posters, handbills or tickets? Many items could be worth a small fortune depending on their market demand and condition,” he says. “I’m looking forward to meeting all my friends and fans at the Seminole Hard Rock. There may be no better place to explore, educate and share rock and roll history with collectors, fans and investors than right here.”
There is no charge for this event. For more information, please call the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino at 954-327-ROCK or visit the Web site at www.seminolehardrockhollywood.com
