R.O.P.E.


WHAT IS R.O.P.E.?

"Mr. Webster tells us that a 'rope' is a thick, strong cord made of several strands twisted together."

To us music folks it is a good, strong group of folks in the entertainment industry that keeps them united in fellowship, camaraderie and making it a 'rope' of great folks.

R.O.P.E. (which stands for the Reunion of Professional Entertainers) began one evening in May of 1983 when forty-three folks in the music industry got together to discuss the idea of having an organization.  Prior to the organizing of R.O.P.E., generally the only times these folks were together was to either work and/or attend the funeral/visitation for a fellow comrade. Wanting to correct this situation was the beginning of this great organization that is known as R.O.P.E., International.

Like Webster's rope that is made of several strands, our 'R.O.P.E.' is made of many different fields of the music and entertainment industry.  Our membership roster includes artists, musicians, songwriters, record producers, booking agents, record promoters, disc jockeys and music business executives.  Some are retired while many are still very active in their respective field. Our members represent many years of musical and entertainment history. 

That evening the following officers and board of directors were elected to head up this new organization: President-Gordon Terry; Vice-President-Ron Elliott; Executive Vice-President-Grant Turner; Treasurer-Corky Wilson; Secretary-Leslie Elliott; with board members-Bill Carlisle; Hillous Butrum; Don Helms; Pete Wade; Joe Vincent; Charlie Dick; Jeff Bess; Smiley Wilson; Tommy Hill; John Denny and Charlie Lamb, as Chairman of the Board. 

Now, in its 28th year, R.O.P.E. is very active and welcomes you to join us.
