DESCRIBED by BBC Radio as ‘The ultimate 1950s Rock ‘n’ Roll show!’, The Bluejays Rock ‘n’ Roll Revolution comes to Artrix in Bromsgrove, this March.

A spokesman said: “The Bluejays, the UK’s leading vintage Rock ‘n’ Roll band present Rock and Roll Revolution – a major new live music theatre show celebrating the 1950s.

“The band first met in 2008 whilst performing as Buddy Holly and the Crickets in the UK Tour of Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story. Vocalist Ollie received rave reviews from the press for his portrayal of Buddy Holly and was even lauded from across the pond by members of Buddy’s family. After Buddy, members of the band appeared in West End productions of Dreamboats & Petticoats and Million Dollar Quartet, before finally forming The Bluejays and quickly becoming one of the UK’s busiest vintage live acts.”

The spokesman added: “They’ve played some stand-out gigs from a Friday night residency at London’s celebrated but sweaty Troubadour Club, to performing underneath Dippy the Dinosaur in the Grand Hall of the Natural History Museum! During that prehistoric gig The Bluejays were joined onstage by rock royalty Brian May of Queen who took over lead guitar and vocals for a cover of Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode.”

Bass guitarist Chris recalls; “It was so surreal! To start with, this was the first time we’d ever played to the bones of a 100ft Diplodocus, but then to have Brian join us onstage… unreal. When I was growing up, my mum had the Queen – Live at Wembley ’86 cassette which we used to listen to in the car all the time. There’s a bit on that where Brian talks to the crowd and I remember thinking, when he joined us and spoke on the mic, ‘That’s the voice from the cassette!’. Then he launched into this incredible version of Johnny B. Goode. We were all just in awe. To be playing bass for a bona fide rock legend is something I’ll never forget.”
