When Rock ‘n’ Roll came to britain – a personal perspective
Fri 21 October, 2022 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
Bill Smarme takes a light-hearted, irreverent musical look at the coming of rock and roll music to these shores in the 1950s; its energising impact on the youth of the time and one impressionable teenager in particular.
Both American and British rock ’n’ roll will be explored, featuring a live band of the Bill Smarme Rock ’n’ Roll Trio, with Bill on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Marty Skiver on lead guitar and Micky Slapabilly on double bass. Good-time old-time rock ‘n’ roll music, bring your blue suede shoes!
Bill Smarme is a character comedy creation of Bill Clarke. Bill Smarme is “an international club entertainer, bon viveur, style icon, and building contractor”. He has performed throughout the South West, and occasionally beyond, for the past 30 years.
