Rock Fantasy Concert Shop celebrates 36 years in the Hudson Valley with a special concert at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Middletown.

Rock Fantasy has been a Hudson Valley, NY mainstay since 1985, catering to the hard rock/heavy metal community. Celebrating 36 years, owner Stephen Keeler is getting ready for a big anniversary concert with their first open-air concert at the Orange County Fairgrounds.

Last November, we covered the Hudson Valley Record Shop Celebrating 36 Years, starting off selling records, cassettes, CDs, and t-shirts, eventually incorporating tobacco products, along with comic books and other collectibles. During the 1990s and 2000s, the store would see meet and greets from rock/metal bands to pro wrestlers along with an ever-growing collection of pinball machines. Rock Fantasy now has a huge pinball room as part of their store at 12 East Main St in Middletown, and they often host pinball tournaments out of the shop.
