The Neverly Brothers

"A Rock 'n' Roll Tribute From Elvis to the Beatles!"

The Neverly Brothers concerts are a tribute to one of the most exciting chapters in music history: the birth, near death and resurrection of rock n' roll. Their one-of-a-kind high energy stage performances take you on a musical guided tour of rock history - from 1955 to 1965.

The first half of their concert pays tribute to the music created by the 1950s American Rock n' Roll pioneers - which by 1960 had become a distant memory but became the inspiration for the next wave of young rock bands from Britain. The second half then pays tribute to the 1964 British Invasion bands that re-recorded the forgotten 1950s American rock music - along with lesser known early 1960s rhythm & blues songs, recorded their own original songs and pulled Rock n' Roll from the edge of extinction by re-inventing and re-energizing it for a new generation.

You'll learn rock history and be thoroughly entertained with their chronological song sequence, stories behind the music and vintage wardrobe changes. Their repertoire consists of show-stopping renditions of early hits by Jerry Lee Lewis (Great balls of fire), Chuck Berry (Johnny B. Goode), Eddie Cochran (Summertime blues), Buddy Holly (That'll be the day), The Beatles (Twist & shout), The Rolling Stones (Satisfaction), The Kinks (You really got me), The Dave Clark Five (Glad all over) and more!

It's not "moldy oldies"- it's "old-school cool!" So hop aboard our virtual tour bus and fasten your seatbelts for an exciting MAGICAL HISTORY TOUR!

Sweet Dreams and Honky Tonks

Featuring the music of Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash

It may be impossible to crown any one performer as country music's biggest, most beloved, or most influential star, but few would argue that Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash would all be near the top of any list. Each broke barriers and changed country and popular music forever. Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is a revue that presents the best loved hits of these classic artists along with stories of their colorful lives, amazing careers, and indelible impact on American music and culture. Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks stars two music veterans.

Tom Waselchuk is a singer, song writer, and multi-instrumentalist who has performed for over three decades in a variety of musical genres, while always keeping one foot planted firmly in country music. Mr. Waselchuk has toured nationally and internationally, composed for musical theatre, and produced a country-music themed holiday show titled Tinsel & Twang: A Merry-cana Christmas. Lindsey Giese is a dynamic singer and a consummate performer. She's sung just about every style of popular music performing in scores of revues with her sister duo The Giese Girls and as a soloist, starring in the Fabulous Fifties Live! For five seasons and as lead vocalist on Holland America and Celebrity Cruises for four years.

The back-up band for Sweet Dreams & Honky Tonks is called The Dang-Its, featuring Mark Luhring on drums, Matt Rodgers on bass, Rick Nass on pedal steel guitar, and Chris Wagoner on violin and mandolin. The Dang-Its were named 2013 Country/Bluegrass Performer of the Year by the Madison (WI) Area Music Awards, and their most recent recording, A Lick of Sense, was named the MAMAs 2014 Country Bluegrass Album of the Year.

The Premier Retro Rock & Roll Show

Rosie & The Rivets: The Premier Retro Rock & Roll Show perform an electrifying female fronted retrospective tribute to the first ten years (1954-1964) of Rock & Roll. Along with early Rock & Roll favorites, you'll hear Girl Group, Rockabilly, R&B, Surf, and British Invasion featuring Rosie's powerful and versatile voice and backed by a band with extensive theater/tribute/roots music experience (members of the Rivets have worked in The Million Dollar Quartet, Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story, and The Fab Four: Beatles Tribute).

Make no mistake; this is not your typical 'oldies playing oldies' band. Rosie & The Rivets are a high energy stage show that's fresh and fun for all ages. Audiences have a hard time staying in their seats and concerts often turn into dance parties! Sticklers for detail, much research went into their stage production; period correct wardrobe, hair and makeup along with vintage guitars, drums and even microphones assure you'll be in for a truly retro-cool experience.
