Rock Stars, Home Cooked Meals and Music Memorabilia

September 8, 2016
Think you have a cool job? Most likely not as cool as “The Steel City’s” Sharon Ringeisen, who for

over three decades has been at the helm of Pittsburgh’s premier music venues as catering director extraordinaire.
Throughout the years Sharon has been cooking local and favorite dishes for some of the world’s greatest musicians and their crew. Artists such as Aerosmith, Elton John, Beyonce, No Doubt and Waylon Jennings praise her amazing cooking and hospitality while on tour in Pittsburgh. Remember the old saying, “The way to someone’s heart is thru their stomach”? Well that rings true in this case. Sharon won over countless performers by serving them with kindness and delicious “home cooked” meals. In turn these headlining artists would reciprocate by presenting her with unique and often signed memorabilia.
Sharon’s vast assortment of concert memorabilia reflects not only her love of music, but also spotlights the love that these artists had for her as well. Through the years she was showered with gifts like a soccer ball signed by Rod Stewart, a 24-karat champagne bottle from Jay-Z’s private collection, a tri-fold laminated ‘Quaker Steak & Lube’ menu that has circled and autographed lunch choices by Korn, as well as a Rolling Stone magazine that features the dynamic duo Robert Plant and Jimmy Page on the cover with their signatures!
imageFrom Classic Rock, Heavy-Metal and Alternative Rock, to Pop, Country & Western, R&B and Folk; this auction event has it all! There are hundreds of desirable lots, filled with collectible concert mementos from one headliner after the next.
Fans of Classic-Rock music will be more than impressed seeing a host of great items from bands such as Aerosmith, Allman Brothers Band, Davie Bowie, Chicago, CSNY, The Doors, Bob Dylan, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Journey, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tom Petty, Rolling Stones, Rush, Santana and Bruce Springsteen.
If you like it a little edgier and heavier, there’s great stuff from Black Sabbath & Ozzy Osbourne, Def Leppard, Godsmack, Iron Maiden, KISS, Korn, Megadeth, Motley Crue, Pantera, Pearl Jam, Poison, Stone Temple Pilots and Van Halen – just to name a few.
There are many kickin’ Country & Western lots by artists such as Alabama, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Hank Williams Jr. And for those who are more into the Folk, Singer / Songwriter and Jam bands genre, they will be thrilled to see attractive lots by the Dave Matthews Band, John Mellencamp, Phish or James Taylor.
