Bobby Eddy breathed life into Rockin. We are going into our sixth year because of Bobby's idea from years ago. He wanted to honor his grandson in a way that would be fun for everyone yet still bring respectful attention to the cause.
Bobby knew what needed to be done and with a nod he said, "Let's do it."
The rest is history.
And Bobby Eddy's legacy.
This year we dedicate ROTR20 to our event creator. Our dream maker.
Our original Rocker.
This year, we Rock for Bobby.
Three friends had only a pen and drink napkin as their design board. It was their wish to bring attention to the autism spectrum and folks with special needs. The friends brainstormed an event that would bring together a weekend of music while benefiting those with different needs. In 2015, the first annual Rockin on the River hit the shores of the Kissimmee River!
Over the last five years. ROTR has raised almost $150,000 for programs assisting about 3000 students, men and women with special needs. If you've Rocked with us, you have helped to make this happen!

With nearly 30 years in the spotlight, Diffie has no plans to slow down. “I love music. It’s just a part of me,” he says. “Retiring would be like cutting off my arm or something. I enjoy everything about it. The travel part gets old once in a while admittedly, but I love the fans. It beats working any day.”
