We, a couple aged 67 & 71, thoroughly enjoyed the energy of this show. The first half was devoted strictly to 50's era songs and we knew most of them. Mark Curran has a good voice for this music, better, we thought, than the Sinatra revue he...continued

I enjoyed the 50's music more than the 60's, but the show was enjoyable.
At times the band was too loud to hear the singer's voices well.

Description

This oldies but goodies stage show will take you back to the days when music was fun, the nights were cruisin’, and the dancing never stopped! It’s a salute to the music legends and greatest hits of the 50’s and 60’s presented in a live stage musical format. The Cruisin Oldies Show Band, fronted by tribute artists Mark W. Curran and Tom Haney, keeps the audience singing, clapping and laughing in this non-stop exciting show, which includes multiple costume changes and a unique, radio style narrative that tells the history of rock and roll – as it happened!

The ‘50s segment includes great songs like “Rock Around The Clock,” “At The Hop,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “All Shook Up,” “Pretty Woman,” Peggy Sue" and “The Twist” -even an affectionate send up of the hit musical “Grease!” Artists include Elvis, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Dion and the Belmonts and Chubby Checker. There’s also a nostalgiac look back at the at the great doo-wop and street corner harmony groups that built the foundation of rock and roll.

The ’60s segment of the show covers the best of rock, pop, even a few psychedelic relics, revving into overdrive with a special salute to sixties supergroups like The Beatles, (“Twist and Shout,”) The Beach Boys (“I Get Around”) and the Four Seasons (“Sherry”).

There will also be a few guest stars and surprises you won’t want to miss in this fun, family-style show, so bring the kids and grandparents alike! Grease back your hair, put on your bobby sox or just wear your love beads – this show is suitable for all ages!
