Back by popular demand, Rock Of The ’70s returns with an all-new line-up! It promises to be an evening of St. Louis classics as April Wine, The Babys, Savoy Brown, and the Pat Travers Band share the stage. Don’t miss what promises to be an amazing night of rock-n-roll – Friday, October 5. Tickets on sale Friday, April 27 at noon.
April Wine is a Canadian rock band formed in 1969. According to the band, they chose the name ‘April Wine’ simply because members thought the two words sounded good together. The band went on to release more than twenty albums and record St. Louis favorites such as “I Like To Rock.” “Sign Of The Gypsy Queen,” “Roller,” and “Just Between You And Me.” April Wine has forged a live performance reputation which still sees them drawing devoted crowds across Canada and around the world more than forty years after taking their first steps into the hard rock spotlight.
Born in 1976, THE BABYS took on the classic rock world head first with a full stage musical experience, giving rise to what quickly came to be known as their ‘signature sound’. Billboard chart-climbers like “Every Time I Think of You”, “Midnight Rendezvous” and “Isn’t It Time” helped to launch them into worldwide recognition while also helping to carve out their permanent place in music history. After a successful run from 1976-1981, THE BABYS disbanded, but are thrilled to be back after a three-decade absence! Co-founders Tony Brock (drums) and Wally Stocker (lead guitar) launched a nationwide talent search at the end of 2012 to find the right lead vocalist, additional guitarist, keyboardist and iconic Babettes to capture and complete the full richest of the classic sound of THE BABYS, which they found in lead vocalist/bassist John Bisaha, guitarist Joey Sykes, keyboardist Louis Middleton and The Babettes; Holly Bisaha and Elisa Chadbourne.
Originally called the Savoy Brown Blues Band, this group can rightly take credit for cutting the farewell anthem of the 1960s British blues boom, in the form of a modern blues aptly titled “Train to Nowhere.” One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the USA invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970’s. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today.
Since the critically acclaimed 1976 debut album featuring his own brand of high-quality seventies guitar rock and roll, Pat Travers has gone on to deliver melodic eighties rock, a blues period throughout most of the nineties, noted performances with various power trio’s during the first few years of the new Millennium, and a full-blooded return to the trademark Pat Travers Band sound as he entered his fifth performing and recording decade.
