Aerosmith drummer inks exclusive agreement to serve his fresh-brewed organic coffee at the new entertainment destination  

Sugar Land, TX (August 30, 2016) – Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer will soon be Rockin’ & Roastin’ with Texas’s newest entertainment venue, located in Sugar Land, Texas. Today, Kramer announces a multi-year marketing sponsorship with Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land, a state of the art concert and entertainment destination, scheduled to open in January 2017. Smart Financial Centre will exclusively serve Kramer’s fresh brewed organic coffee line, Rockin’ & Roastin’. 

“I’m amped about having Rockin’ & Roastin’ in our brand’s first concert venue in Texas” said Joey Kramer, founder and chairman of Rockin’ & Roastin’. “The City of Sugar Land has created a top notch facility that will attract a lot of incredible talent from the entertainment world. As a Texas transplant and musician, I’m thrilled to be aligned with them.”

“Serving Rockin’ & Roastin’ coffee at our venue is part of our mission to deliver world-class quality to our audiences,” said Randy Bloom, General Manager of the Smart Financial Centre. “As a legendary musician and founder of Rockin’ & Roastin’, Joey Kramer is the perfect partner to tie together two components of a great event, incredible music and great amenities.”

Rockin’ & Roastin’ will be brewed and served onsite at each of the concession locations in the Centre, the Grand Suites and the VIP Lounge. Additionally, the coffee will be available at a unique, rock ‘n roll-themed coffee cart in the lobby that has been custom designed for the venue.

“Becoming the official and exclusive coffee of the Smart Financial Centre is a great expansion for our brand in Texas,” said Ron Mann, co-founder and chief executive officer of Rockin’ & Roastin’. “It has been a pleasure to work with Steve Wilson and the Smart Centre team in facilitating this sponsorship and to have Rockin’ & Roastin’ present in one of the state’s newest and most exciting concert venues.”

Rockin' & Roastin' Organic Coffee products



Joey Kramer, drummer for Aerosmith, is a coffee-loving Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer. The story of Joey Kramer’s Rockin’ & Roastin’ 100% USDA organic certified, custom-roasted coffee brews begins in the field. Unlike “sun grown” coffee that’s cheaper to produce but requires chemical fertilizers and pesticides and leads to the destruction of native rainforests, Rockin’ & Roastin’ coffee is lovingly cultivated using the traditional “shade grown” method, under a canopy of indigenous trees, that leads to Arabica beans. There currently is a trio of international blends offered: a medium roast from Guatemala; a medium-dark roast from Ethiopia; and, a dark roast hailing from Sumatra. Rockin’ & Roastin’ also is the official hot brewed coffee at House of Blues locations throughout the nation. In late 2015, Kramer opened “Rockin’ & Roastin’ Café & Restaurant – At the Mountain,” a two-level, family-friendly entertainment destination equipped with a coffeehouse, full-service dining room and live music performances at the Sunday River Ski Resort (Newry, ME). In the summer of 2016, Kramer will open his first brick and mortar coffeehouse with a rock star edge, “Joey Kramer’s Rockin’ & Roastin’ Café,” in N. Attleborough, MA.
