Rock and Roll Revolution
HOW THE SOUNDS OF THE 1950S CHANGED THE WORLD FOREVER
Award-winning band The Bluejays (featuring stars of Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story, Dreamboats & Petticoats and Million Dollar Quartet) take you on a jiving journey through the fabulous fifties. Packed with over 40 classic hits including Rock Around The Clock, That’ll Be The Day, Jailhouse Rock, Johnny B. Goode, Tutti Frutti, C’mon Everybody, Stupid Cupid, Great Balls of Fire and La Bamba, all performed live on stage, Rock and Roll Revolution will transport you back to the era when music changed the world forever!
From the early days of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis at Sun Studio, via the brief but brilliant careers of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and Eddie Cochran, right through to Rock ‘n’ Roll’s heyday with artists such as Cliff Richard, Connie Francis, Bill Haley and his Comets, Dion and the Belmonts and Little Richard – Rock and Roll Revolution is a whistle-stop tour through music’s most defining decade!
In 2017, The Bluejays were flown out to Lubbock, Texas to play for members of Buddy Holly’s family – even being joined on backing vocals by Buddy’s wife, Maria Elena! Fortunately, you don’t need to travel that far to catch this wonderful band. If you love Rock ‘n’ Roll, dust off your Blue Suede Shoes and join the Rock and Roll Revolution!
