Be-Bop-A-Lula returns by popular demand! Artistic director Lynnea Barry welcomes Siri Vik and Bill Hulings in an evening of a choice selection of the 1950s' most iconic songs, including "Why Do Fools Fall in Love", Bye Bye Love", "Peggy Sue", "Who's Sorry Now", "Rock Around The Clock", "Save the Last Dance for Me", "Change is Gonna Come", "People Get Ready", "Stand By Me", and many more.
The revolution in American popular music during the 1950s changed our world influencing lifestyle, language, mindset, and modern culture. The recipe of swing, doowop, blues, country, and gospel, created the perfect casserole of rockabilly, pop, soul, rock 'n' roll, and more. This evolution of popular music had been cooking for decades before adding dashes of gospel style harmonies and pinches of call and response. It was less about any one style and more about a feeling that teenage America could not get enough of, that religious groups, government officials and parents often deemed as the “devils music” or somethng equally dangerous, and at the same time became a voice of justice, change and hope. Be-Bop-A-Lula: Rockin' through the '50s celebrates this music that had a prevailing presence in and, indeed, fundamentally transformed American popular culture.
