The Crystals and Chris Montez
Saturday 21 April | Woden
Direct from the USA – For One Night Only
This classic rock n roll show features two powerful rock acts from the USA, and an Australian act that can trace its pedigree back to the start of rock n roll in Australia.
The defining American female vocal group of the sixties is The Crystals. Their Wall of Sound recordings, produced by the legendary Phil Spector, include ‘And then he kissed me’, ‘Da do ron ron’, ‘He’s a rebel’, ‘He’s sure the boy I love, ‘Uptown’ and many more. The Crystals are headed up by Dee Dee Kenniebrew, who was in the original line up of the Crystals.
Chris’s soft ballad sound resulted in a string of worldwide hits including ‘The more I see you’, ‘There will never be another you’, ‘Call me’ and ‘Time after time’. With his Mexican influence, his popularity soared as groups such as Los Lobos topped the charts. The movie ‘La Bamba’ identified Chris and his musical roots, which is part of the Ritchie Valens legacy.
Special guests, The Allstars can trace their pedigree back to the late fifties when rock n roll began. The focus of their performance is on popular, danceable hits, the ones people have chosen through record purchases to be the top hits of the day. Members of Australian band The Allstars were in the successful groups of the fifties and the sixties – the Planets, the Blue Echoes, Jigsaw and the National Breakouts.
