The 1950s is certainly a power packed time for Rock ‘n’ Roll, Doo Wop, and Rockabilly, which was all inspired by African American Rhythm and Blues from artists such as Big Joe Turner and Louis Jordan. And Bill Haley and the Comets were one of the first that grabbed that sound and created a mania of sorts.
Rock ‘n’ Roll stars like Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Little Richard and Bo Diddly were certainly the kings that influenced many of the other genres that evolved in this time period.
Doo Wop music which finds its origins in the streets of Harlem where African American musicians could not afford brass instruments, created those sounds with their voices ushering in groups like The Cadillacs, The Del Vikings, The Diamonds and many more.
And of course the many slow tunes that came out of the Doo Wop era fashioned groups like The Platters, The Five Satins, and The Skyliners.
Artists like Elvis, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochrane, Gene Vincent, and Jerry Lee Lewis all took from the African American inspired sound and created a genre of music referred to as Rockabilly.
All of these types of musical genres can be found in the Booking House stable of artists where you can be rest assured that your event will make you feel like the Danny and the Junior’s song that Rock ‘n’ Roll is definitely here to stay!
