In the USA rock and roll dominated popular music in the early 1950s and spread from there across the world.
What we call "Oldies" encompasses next to rock and roll music different styles of music like rhythm and blues, gospel music, country and western and also folk music. Also during that decade the electric guitar was introduced - a complete new sound unheard of before.
From the beginning of the 1950s to the beginning of the 1960s there appeared so many artists and songs that one could hardly tell them apart. Just to name the most important ones:
Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, Bill Haley and His Comets, Pat Boone, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Ricky Nelson, Frankie Avalon, Paul Anka, Neil Sedaka, the Platters, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly and of course for folk music Pete Seeger, The Kingston Trio and Harry Belafonte.
During this evening we want to listen to several of those artists and you will get some interesting background information about the artists and the songs. Because if you listen the song on the radio (or from your own collection) it is so much more fun to understand the lyrics and to know some facts and stories connected with the artist and the song, respectively.
Join us and enjoy that type of music which could almost be called "classic" these days.
