Lance Lipinsky’s Rock Baby Rock
Lance Lipinsky's Rock Baby Rock: Celebrating the Birth of Rock 'n' Roll. This event also features An Evening at American Bandstand with special tributes to the Everly Brothers and Ricky Nelson.
Influenced by the mid century birth of Rock & Roll era of the 1950's and 60's, Wimberley, Texas born Lipinsky preserves the timeless tradition of the Rockabilly subculture in both his songwriting and his live power house, piano stage show antics. Watch him in action here and here.
Accompanied by the Dreamers, Lipinsky's driving Jerry Lee Lewis piano rhythms and Presley inspired swagger in his own persona has lead him to appear on both the David Letterman Show and at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Recently he was featured in the new HBO series "Vinyl" directed by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese.
After headlining over 2500 action packed shows at the Apollo Theatre in the TONY award winning Broadway musical "Million Dollar Quartet," Lipinsky's debut album "Roll" was recorded in Memphis' historic Sun Studios using all original, vintage analog equipment.
Lipinsky's songwriting and live showmanship can be described as a continuation - a much awaited novel sequel to a style born in the Atomic age of the 50's. Some would label it and dismiss it as "oldies" or "nostalgia," but artists like Lance devoted to the Roots music movement remind us that this style is not just a mere trend from the past, but rather its own genre that is still alive and well and standing the test of time.
