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 ’50s and ’60s 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 60’s 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!
