• Hard Rock Rocksino Rocks Events
My name is Michelle Baker. I am the Special Events and Catering Manager for the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park. I have been with the band since December 2, 2013.
The Hard Rock Rocksino is a destination location where guests can find their rhythm with gaming, dining, and entertainment available 24/7. We also bring corporate and social events to the location.
At the Hard Rock Rocksino we specialize in “creating authentic experiences that rock!” It has been such an honor to be a part of this everyday. Here is a look at one of my days as a Special Events and Catering Manager
