Reock & Roll Revue Pays Tribute to Allman Brothers Band in "Eat a Peach" Concert
The Reock & Roll Revue is returning to Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre for two performances of the band’s newest show, “Eat a Peach,” a tribute to the 1972 album by The Allman Brothers Band. The theater gets rocking on Saturday, July 28 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, July 29 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on Mercer’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Reock & Roll Revue has developed a devoted following at Kelsey, having performed to sold-out crowds in the past, including its February performance of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Déjà Vu” album, as well as performances of The Who's "Quadrophenia" in 2010 and 2011, and The Beatles' "White Album" in 2009.
This summer’s performance will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Allman Brother’s most famous album and chronicle the early history of the group, leading up to the untimely death of founding member and lead slide-guitar player Duane Allman. Video presentations and verbal commentary will also be part of the show.
“Fans can come and relive the music of the ’70s or learn for the first time about one of the most influential groups in American rock and roll history,” Tom Reock said.
The band features Mario DiBartolo of Hamilton, Jerry Steele of Princeton, Michael White of Hamilton, Joe D'Angelo of Pennington, Bud Belviso of Hamilton, Chris Grace of Pennington, and Tom Reock of Hamilton. They will be joined by special guest Hal Jordan Ketofsky, of South Brunswick, on bass guitar.
The Reock & Roll Revue was formed in 2004 as an outlet for Tom Reock to perform original and other eclectic cover songs, while still performing with Trenton rock and blues legend Ernie White. In 2008, the band decided to undertake a stage presentation of The Beatles' “White Album,” which was so successful they followed it with tributes to several other notable bands from the ’60s and ’70s.
