Fasten your seatbelts for a musical tour through the birth, near death and resurrection of rock ‘n’ roll from 1955-65 in A Rock ‘n’ Roll Tribute—From Elvis to the Beatles! Featuring The Neverly Brothers at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12 at the College of Lake County. The performance takes place in the Mainstage Theatre in the James Lumber Center for the Performing Arts.
The first half of the concert pays tribute to the music created by the 1950s American rock ‘n’ roll pioneers - which by 1960 had become a distant memory but became the inspiration for the next wave of young rock bands from Britain. The second half then pays tribute to the 1964 British Invasion bands that re-recorded the forgotten 1950s American rock music – along with lesser-known early 1960s rhythm-and-blues songs, recorded their own original songs and pulled rock n' roll from the edge of extinction by re-inventing and re-energizing it for a new generation.
