The Neverly brothers ’ one-of-a-kind high-energy performance will 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 , chuck berry , eddie cochran , buddy Holly , The beatles , The rolling stones , The Kinks , The Dave clark Five , and more !
Tickets are $ 30 in advance or $ 35 at the door and can be purchased at the Ohnward Fine Arts center box office , by calling 563-652-9815 , or at OnwardFineArtsCenter . com . •
