Click for big version.

HAPPY DAYS

Be prepared to jump, jive, dance,  stomp your feet and sing along to classic 50s favourites

BILL HALEY JR. – son of the founding father of rock ‘n’ roll – is set to shake, rattle and roll New Zealand next month with tour so authentic, revellers will feel they’ve been transported back to the 50s.

BILL HALEY JR. & THE COMETS will perform in Invercargill, Dunedin, Timaru, Christchurch, Nelson, Wellington, Hastings, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Auckland, Tauranga, Rotorua and Hamilton.

Audiences should be prepared to jump, jive, dance, clap, stomp their feet and sing along to classic 50s favorites such as Rock Around The Clock, See Ya Later Alligator, Shake, Rattle & Roll, Rock This Joint, Chantilly Lace, Johnny B Good and Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On when BILL HALEY JR. & THE COMETS rock the joint!

Emphasizing authenticity in sound and presentation in a 2-hour show, BILL HALEY JR. shares inside stories behind the songs he sings backed up by his talented five-piece band of Comets: multi-instrumentalist Bobby Michaels on saxophone, percussion and keyboard; nimble-fingered Mike Denaro on electric guitar; Christopher Davis Shannon slapping the upright bass; and not forgettingRich Flamini’s energetic Gene Krupa-style drumming.

Bill Jr says don’t expect so much a tribute band, but rather a Rock and Roll history show. Along with the behind-the-scenes stories, Bill Jnr emphasises that he and his band mates perform the hits just as they sounded in the 1950s.

“We play as authentically as possible,” Bill says.
