Concerts in the Library: Good Rockin' Tonight--Rockabilly Library - Library Events
Many people believe rockabilly music was born in 1954 at Sun Records, a tiny recording studio in Memphis, Tennessee. Nineteen-year-old Elvis Presley (along with Scotty Moore on electric guitar and Bill Black on the doghouse bass) changed popular music as we know it. They created a brand new sound by combining country music, rhythm and blues, and gospel. Scot Bruce, Russell Scott, and Buzz Campbell recreate that sound and swagger. This performance will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 19, in the Friends of the Library Room. The program is part of a series called Concerts in the Library, featuring classical and jazz programs, as well as music from different traditions.
Programs in the series will take place the third Saturday each month from January to May. All concerts are free and light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library.
The library is located at 111 W. Mariposa Avenue and Main Street. Call (310) 524-2728 for additional information
