Recreating the music, feel and excitement of the birth of rock ‘n’ roll, Bill Haley, Jr. & The Comets will perform at the Suncoast Showroom May 19 and 20.
Reviving the look and sound made famous by his father — Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame member Bill Haley — Bill Haley, Jr. recaptures the heyday and carries on the tradition his father started in the 1950s.
The original Bill Haley & The Comets scored their first hit with “Crazy Man, Crazy” in 1953 and reached stardom with their follow-up, “Rock Around The Clock.” The single sold an estimated 25 million copies and spent eight weeks atop the Billboard chart. The song was ranked No. 158 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.”
Bill Haley, Jr. & The Comets will perform favorites such as “Rock Around The Clock,” “See Ya Later Alligator,” “Shake, Rattle & Roll,” “Rock This Joint,” “Don’t Knock The Rock” and “Rockit 88.”
