Press release from Henderson County Tourism Development Authority:
Classic rock, beach tunes and blues standards are on tap for Rock & Roll Reunion’s much-anticipated return to Music on Main on Friday, July 27. The concert will be held in historic downtown Hendersonville from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Visitor Center at 201 South Main Street. Admission is free.
The Spartanburg-based band has been playing together since 1995, with members changing through the years. The current five-piece group features Tom Crabtree on guitar and lead vocals, Sonny Stokes on bass guitar and vocals, Andre Kerr on keyboards, sax and vocals, Tim Walker on drums and percussion, and Fred Miller on keyboards, guitar and vocals. Over the years, Rock & Roll Reunion has built a following covering hits like Joe Cocker’s “The Letter,” Delbert McClinton’s “Giving It Up for Your Love,” The Beatles’ “Hey Jude,” Santana’s “Black Magic Woman” and Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman.”
Many concert-goers come to Music on Main not only for the music but for the chance to see beautifully restored cars. That evening, visitors can enjoy both vintage and new Corvettes at the Corvette cruise-in. It will be held in front of the Visitor Center, between Allen Street and Caswell Street, at the same time as the concert. For more information about the Corvette cruise-in, call Mike Peppers at 828-674-9211.
