Arlington Heights, IL – Take a musical guided tour of rock history with A Rock’n Roll Tribute… From Elvis to the Beatles! Featuring The Neverly Brothers at Metropolis Performing Arts Centre April 27, 2018.
The Neverly Brothers concerts are a tribute to one of the most exciting chapters in music history: the birth, near death and resurrection of rock n’ roll. Their one-of-a-kind high energy stage performances take you on a musical guided tour of rock history – from 1955 to 1965.
The first half of their 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 & 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.
You’ll learn rock history and be thoroughly entertained with their chronological song sequence, stories behind the music and vintage wardrobe changes. Their repertoire consists of show-stopping renditions of early hits by Jerry Lee Lewis (“Great Balls of Fire”), Chuck Berry (“Johnny B. Goode”), Eddie Cochran (“Summertime Blues”), Buddy Holly (“That’ll Be the Day”), The Beatles (“Twist & Shout”), The Rolling Stones (“Satisfaction”), The Kinks (“You Really Got Me”), The Dave Clark Five (“Glad All Over”) and more! It‘s not “moldy oldies”- it’s “old-school cool!” So hop aboard our virtual tour bus and fasten your seatbelts for an exciting Magical History Tour!
