Rock-N-Roll Pitstop Opens At Loveless Cafe

Music Row Veteran Stephen M. Shutts and Grammy Award Winning Recording Artist Robert Reynolds (The Mavericks) are opening The Rock-N-Roll Pitstop at Loveless Cafe.

Open daily beginning Oct. 1, the Rock-N-Roll Pitstop is a unique retail shop serving as a one of a kind shopping experience for the authentic music memorabilia collector.

As The Honky Tonk Hall of Fame, Shutts and Reynolds have toured their collections of pop culture for the past decade at state fairs, malls and casinos.

They successfully marketed Elvis Presley's Audubon Drive Home to a world record audience via Ebay, purchased the Zippin Pippin (Presley's favorite roller coaster) and rescued, with a purchase, Hank Williams’ handwritten notebook at a garage sale, launching a monumental legal battle over ownership of the holy grail of country music.

Acquiring for themselves and other collectors, including various celebrities, the two entrepreneurs pride themselves on finding the "unfindable" pop culture relics such as Patsy Clines airplane wreckage, Elvis Presley’s baby shoes and unseen film footage of an early Rolling Stones Tour.

Intrigued with the continuing finds with unprecedented stories attached, Thom Oliphant at Tailight Productions in Nashville, Tennessee, solidified a development deal for a TV series chronicling the super heros of memorabilia, pursuit of all things pop culture.

The Rock-n-Roll Pitstop located at historic Loveless Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee will serve as a backdrop for the production. The shop will be rotating acquisitions that will range from very affordable to the very high end as well as showcasing “a culmination of efforts of who we are as intense collectors with a sensitivity for authenticity,” said Shutts.

Additionally, formal appraisals, brokering and walking buyers through the authenticity process to educate new collectors will be provided.
