Cuff your pant legs, put on your bobby socks and be-bop the night away with '50s and '60s rock 'n' roll from Sky Daddy & the Pop Rocks performing Nov. 6 at The Gathering in Cottonwood.
Sky Daddy & the Pop Rocks play invigorating rock 'n' roll, surf, and rockabilly music of the 1950s and early 1960s. But there is so much more to the band than the great nostalgic music they perform. For one, each of these cool cats appears to be oblivious to what decade they're living in.
They dress, act and talk as if it is still 1958. The band features smiling, bubble-gum chewing, poodle skirt wearing, dancing and singing doo wop girls. And the Pop Rocks refuse to just stand and play their songs. A Pop Rocks event is one in which everybody must have fun. What starts out as a concert frequently becomes an audience free-for-all dance and performance, with the band inviting audience members up on stage to perform with them.
And there are always more surprises in store from this unpredictable ensemble whose enthusiasm becomes contagious to all who are fortunate enough to witness their over-the-top performance.
Comprising the band are Sky Conwell, Brandon Sparks, Lee Marier, Emily Hamilton, Kristy McKune, Ofer Harel and Scott Hovelsrud
