The unveiling of all ten R.I. Music Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018 inductee exhibits will take place in the Hall of Fame museum space in Hope Artiste Village, Pawtucket, at 2:00 p.m. followed by the final 2018 RIMHOF Induction Concert beginning at 3:00 p.m. at the Met. The James Montgomery Band will be performing followed by a retrospective tribute to Paul Murphy featuring Greg Abate & Channel One, James Montgomery, The Duke Robillard Band, The Groove-masters, and many past RIMHOF inductees and R.I. musicians who played with Murphy throughout the years.
The 2 p.m. unveiling of the inductee exhibits is free and open to the public; a ticket will be required for entrance to the 3 p.m. concert in The Met. Tickets are $10.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door and can be purchased at www.themetri.com. All proceeds from RIMHOF’s annual induction events go toward creating the museum displays, acquiring recordings and memorabilia, and digitizing that collection for permanent online access for future generations
