Sticky Fingers Ribhouse And Social Music App Rockbot Invite Customers To “Choose The Blues”

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Sticky Fingers Ribhouse announced on Tuesday a partnership with Rockbot, a social music service that allows their restaurant’s customers to pick the music playing at Sticky Fingers locations right from their smartphones.

All it takes is a free download of the Rockbot mobile app and Sticky Fingers customers are well on their way to personalizing their dining experience by choosing their own music.

  Customers may choose from both classic and newer songs on a curated playlist of literally hundreds of songs with a heavy influence of blues, soul and bluesy rock that makes up the distinctive “Sticky Sound.” 

By hand-selecting the songs available to their guests, the restaurant group was able to select great music that is appropriate for casual dining and also block songs with explicit lyrics in keeping with the restaurant’s family-friendly appeal.  Sticky Fingers promotional efforts encourage restaurant guests to literally “Choose The Blues” with Rockbot.

Robert Patterson, formerly just the “VP of Fun” has added “Sticky mixologist” to his title.  While discussing the new partnership, he said that “Sticky Fingers is focused on serving authentic Memphis-style ribs and barbecue, and this new service allows us to similarly offer up a wide choice of authentic great American music to match.”

Mr. Patterson said, “We are very excited about our recent partnership and have already seen how much fun our guests are having with this cutting-edge new music app. The best part is seeing parents and kids interact on a whole new level.  The parents love it, kids love it, and our staff loves the excitement of working with guests to help choose what’s going to play on Rockbot next.”

For the upcoming Easter holiday, starting with happy hour on Friday, and continuing through Sunday, Sticky Fingers Ribhouses will offer customers unlimited free song plays on Rockbot, allowing guests to “Choose The Blues” while enjoying their favorite barbecue all weekend long.
