I thought it was "quite" good and definitely has the potential of being a "very good" show. The first few numbers didn't really excite me, but the band seemed to warm up and get better with each song.

Here's what I didn't like:

They were very talented and the lead man did great impersonations of Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, etc. All in all, a really fun day.

The band and singers were good and a lot of fun. And the venue was quite good -- small with no bad seat in the house. We really enjoyed it.

Description

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,” “16 Candles,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “All Shook Up,” “Pretty Woman,” Peggy Sue" and “The Twist”  — even an affectionate send up of “Grease!”  Artists include Elvis, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Dion and the Belmonts and Chubby Checker. There’s also a nostalgic look back at the at the great doo-wop and street corner harmony groups that built the foundation of rock and roll.

 

Then it’s a tribute to “The Swingin’ Sixties” presenting the greatest hits of the era from the British Beat to psychedelia — then revs 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”).
