    Local favorite:

    Flamin' Dick and the Hot Rods is a 50's and 60's Rock-n-Roll Party Band, playing a variety of music from the years of 1955 to 1968 - "The Golden Years of Rock-n-Roll." The classic songs played by Flamin' Dick and the Hot Rods have the soulful sound and feel of the original artists; Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran, Bill Haley, Elvis, The Righteous Brothers, Gene Vincent, Dion, and more.

    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.
