Simply the Best Talent presents: Relive the Music 50s & 60s Rock 'N Roll
September 20, 2019
“Rock Opera Musical Concert with a Broadway feel with Live Band, Singers, Dancers, Tributes, Video and Trivia.”
A brand new one of a kind show that takes the audience through Music History, Trivia & Memories of the 50’s & 60’s. You will learn many things you never knew about these artists. You will see an energetic live band, amazing frontline singers and dancers transforming and re-living thru two decades of music, costumes, trends and dancing along with informative video imagery in the background.
Performing HITS from Doris Day, Patti Page, Dean Martin, Johnny Cash, Fats Domino, Frank Sinatra, Little Richard, The Platters, Bill Haley and the Comets, Elvis, Paul Anka, Patsy Cline, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, Ricky Nelson, Chuck Berry, Chubby Checker, Dion, The Four Seasons, The Beatles, Roy Orbison, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Rolling Stones, Sonny and Cher, Tina Turner, Neil Diamond, and many more….
The audience will see silhouettes of a band onstage, video will roll in the background with the narrator describing trivia about the upcoming artists prior to each song without mentioning the names. There will be a pause. The audience is encouraged to shout out their guess of what song is coming up. Let the screaming begin.
We sorted through 20 years of over a thousand songs into one show. The main criteria was to trim it to hit songs that are still relevant and memorable to this day. We made our pick of songs that we feel will never get old.
