Rock 'n Roll Love Letters
with Robert Garcia

Saturday November 24th- 7:00PM

Take a journey through the History of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Remember what it was like before you traded in you “Raybans” for “Readers”. Whether you’re a C.E.O. or a stay at home MOM, we all had the same posters on our walls and worshiped the same Rock Gods before we “Landed the Job”, “Bought the House” and “Life got in the way”.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Love Letter is 70 years of Rock n Roll packed into 105 minutes. Experience the culture from its inception with period correct images and video accompanying each decade of the music that changed our culture, society and the world. Part concert, part history lesson, part comedy, and part conversation, “Love Letter” is a message to you from your younger self, telling you “it’s alright, everything is alright”. Told through the eyes of a musician who was not only there for a lot of it, but also a fan too … just like you. And by the way, in case you were wondering, there will be no Elvis costumes harmed in this show, these performances are really more about the fans and how we turned out. Come experience the artistic styling of singer/songwriter, Robert Garcia.
