Night of 1,000 Stars with Brian Gillie at Guilford Free Library
- This event has passed.
April 12, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrate National Library Week with a performance by the multi-talented musician Brian Gillie! Fast-paced, interactive and hip, Brian Gillie’s musical performance “The Roots of Rock ‘n’ Roll” is unlike any history lesson you will ever see or hear! Brian sings and dances his way through this one-hour retro-groove. History, humor, costumes, props, original sound bites, stand-up piano-playing, radio commercials, impersonations and attitude serve to reveal the sound of rock ‘n’ roll through its first fifteen years. Meet the personalities and hear the songs that shaped the music of doo-wop, Motown, girl groups, surfin’, soul, novelty tunes and much more: Little Richard to Coasters, Chuck Berry to Beatles, Elvis to theFour Seasons. Sh-BOOM!
Refreshments will be served.
