HAIL HAIL ROCK ‘N’ ROLL
Presented by Rockola Music
Hail Hail Rock ‘n’ Roll is a tribute to the pioneers of popular music from the music’s acoustic roots in the early 1900s to the massive stadium phenomenon it is today. There’s the bluegrass sound of Bill Monroe, the Chicago blues of Muddy Waters, the rock ‘n’ roll of Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley, Beatlemania, the gospel/soul sound of Smoky Robinson and the Miracles, the funk of James Brown, the hip hop of 25cent, the heavy guitar of Jimi Hendrix and much much more. Hail Hail Rock ‘n’ Roll asks where did rock ‘n’ roll come from? And then puts the whole story into context for young audiences.
Hail Hail Rock ‘n’ Roll taps into the original musical magic that made these artists great with faithful live vocal and instrumental performances- there are no tricks or backing tapes here – and the kids will love it!! A trio of virtuoso singer/musicians perform and explain the development of bluegrass, country music, the blues, soul music, funk, hip hop and heavy metal. Instrumentally the show features performances on the violin, mandolin, harmonica, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass and a full drum kit. Hail Hail Rock ‘n’ Roll’s secret weapon is the trio’s vocal prowess with soaring lead and background vocals, a cappella singing, beat boxing and rapping.

The Rock The Kids Album
Recording the Rock The Kids! album gave us the opportunity to use more authentic instrumentation for the songs. So in addition to the drum kit, electric guitar, electric bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin , violin, harmonica and maracas that we use in the live show we used the stomp board and acoustic bassplus extra guitar, vocal and harmonica parts which it is not possible include in the live show.
