“What? Again? I thought old-time Rock ‘n Roll was gone forever.”


Move over, Hip-Hop, ’cause we’re fixin’ to Bop Around the Clock!

When Butch Evans asked Damon Hendrix (amazing Elvis tribute artist) and The Sock Hops (fabulous vocal harmonizers) to join him for an all-out Rock ‘n Roll Extravaganza five years ago, he had no idea that his brainstorm would blossom into The Great American Rock ‘n Roll Revival, with performances in several states, or that their fun-filled music would keep them invited back for five years running- with sold-out shows becoming the norm!
Discussing the success of his Blast from the Past, MC Tony Baloney says “It’s like we’re reliving the movie ‘American Hot Wax!’ When Rock ‘n Roll was born, it was in small theaters with people dancing in the aisles, and now it’s happening all over again!”

50’s, 60’s and 70’s Rock ‘n Roll has a place in everyone’s heart, but it’s rare to find it being performed live any more. Butch and the Buckheads, Damon Hendrix and the fabulous Sock Hops have stuck to their guns for many years, and now bring their experience, enthusiasm and showmanship to the stage together in The Great American Rock ‘n Roll Revival.

Appearing with such notables as Chubby Checker, Frankie Avalon, The Coasters, The Drifters, The Supremes, The Impressions, The Commodores, Peter Noone, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Three Dog Night, The Temptations, The Swinging Medallions and many more, The Great American Rock ‘n Roll Revival is truly a fun-filled Show for All Ages- it even features a Twist Contest!

So break out your Penny Loafers, crenolines and Poodle Skirts, put on your jeans and white T-shirts and grease up your hair, and

Be there or be square!
