This show disappointed me. This type of music should be high energy but the performers were low energy. Some of the songs were executed poorly. I liked the songs base player did but he did not perfom much. The song selection was great but many...continued

We had no idea that this would be so much fun. We had EXCELLENT seats...center and 3rd row! All of the entertainers were so talented. And the concert started at 7:30 PM and lasted until after 10PM.

This was not exactly as I'd expected. The musicians were really very good and the singers were, too, but I really thought the entire event would be more of a jazzy show...with some dancers, everyone in costumes from the era and a lot more energy...continued

Description

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,” “16 Candles,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “All Shook Up,” “Pretty Woman,” “Peggy Sue” and “The Twist.”

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 Motown with hits by The Four Tops and The Temptations, then revvs 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”)
