About Us

We play the most memorable music of all time the fabulous fifties, the first generation of rock and roll: Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, Bill Haley & his Comets, Richie Valens, Dion, The Diamonds, and the hits keep coming. We also salute the sixties with The Beatles, Temptations, Roy Orbison, The Beachboys, Elvis, The Ventures, and the hits just keep coming. But more than that, we also play the superb 70's with songs by , Eagles, Eddie Money, Journey, Doobie Brothers. Atlanta Rhythm Section, again, the hits still keep coming.​ You may be asking, Who is the guy in the photo next to John, with purple diamonds on his shirt? That is Jeff Dolan of The Diamonds. We have, for many years, opened and closed for the Diamonds at the Mississippi Valley Fair Oldies Tent. We caught this photo when we went into "two tickets to paradise" by Eddie Money, and Jeff couldn't contain himself. So he came up on stage and sang it with us. ​
