Celebrate the music of Chuck Berry “the father of Rock and Roll” with a collection of performances, including excerpts from his 60th birthday concert, the TAMI show in 1964, the Peace concert in Canada in 1969, the lost and very rare BBC concerts of 1972 and more. We’ll also see, as an introduction, rare performances of other early rockers including Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis and Chuck’s stable mate, Bo Diddley. Come along and enjoy some rockin memories! As John Lennon once said “another name for Rock and Roll would be Chuck Berry”.

  • Travelling on the road using pick-up bands: Next we will view a wonderful rehearsal session for his 60th birthday concert with Keith Richards All-Star Band. From here will see rare footage of the “other” originators of rock and roll, we look at Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Elvis and a special look at Chuck’s stable mate, Bo Diddley.
  • Chuck’s performance at the “Peace” concert in Toronto: Filmed by DA Pennebaker who filmed Jimi Hendrix at Monterrey. We then see the other BBC rare “lost concert” footage and conclude with set highlights of Chuck’s 60th birthday concert which will be a wonderful finale to the day.
