It’’s the story of rock’s first fifteen years and its evolution through gospel, rhythm & blues and country and western. Meet the singers and rock groups from doo-wop, Motown, girl groups, surfin’, soul music, novelty songs and more; Little Richard to Coasters, Chuck Berry to Beatles, Elvis to Four Seasons. It’s the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of fame delivered to you. This is a great show for the whole family! Bring a blanket or chairs and get ready to rock!
