This fantastic rock 'n roll show features Karen Davy, singer, songwriter and recording artist performing favourite hits from the fifties, sixties and seventies. Karen has won Variety Artists Top Female Vocalist and Silver Scroll Awards and as a tribute to Dolly Parton she has appeared on the Stars in Their Eyes TV show and has also toured and performed around NZ, in the US (including a show at Las Vegas), Australia and Norfolk Is.

The show also includes The Elderly Brothers, a tribute to The Everly Brothers who were not only among the most important and best early rock & roll stars, but also among the most influential rockers of any era. Their legacy was and is felt enormously in all rock acts that employ harmonies as prime features from the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, and legions of country-rockers to modern-day roots rockers like Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe (who once recorded an EP of Everly’s songs together).

Also in the show Chuck Berried, a tribute to Chuck Berry the man said to have ‘invented’ rock and roll by combining country & western guitar licks with a rhythm and blues feel as demonstrated in his first hit single Maybellene. An extensive repertoire of hits followed that influenced groups like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones – Johnny B. Goode, Roll Over Beethoven, Memphis Tennessee, Sweet Little Sixteen, No Particular Place To Go, You Never Can Tell. His stage antics are legendary, including his famous ‘duck-walk’ and infectious wit.

The band and performers are: Karen Davy, Billy London (ex Aussie Pleazers) on guitar and lead vocals who plays Chuck Berried, and along with Ken Strong (ex Desperadoes: Eagles Tribute Band) lead guitar and vocals, perform the Elderly Brothers duo backed by Mal Finlayson (ex Silhouettes) on drums and John Campion (ex Desperadoes) bass and vocals and Chris Ampleford (Rock and Roll All Stars) keyboards, guitar and vocals.

Billy London, Ken Strong and Mal Finlayson all recently worked as Clearwaters (CCR Tribute) and Stoned (Rolling Stones Tribute) shows.
