Sock hop to benefit community outreach

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

A Buddy Holly Sock Hop will resurrect rock ‘n’ roll and reprise the fabulous ’50s for the young and young-at-heart from 7-10 p.m. today in the Brewery Arts Center’s Grand Ballroom.

Folks who frolicked through the Buddy Holly era, and anyone who relived it through reminiscence flicks such as “American Graffiti” or retro TV shows like “Happy Days,” will revel in timeless memories at this community outreach event hosted by parishioners of S. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Carson City.

Bob Reid and the Rave-Ons will play live renditions of rollicking rock that captivated generations and still resonate today, including the Buddy Holly hits “Peggy Sue,” “Rave on” and “That’ll Be the Day.”

The Rave Ons are Reid on keyboards and some vocals, Brad Lund on bass and lead vocals, Joe Shelley on sax, and Herbie Weihskopf, drums.

The dance and food/drink frolic is a fundraising event to support ongoing and community outreach programs at St. Peter’s.

Tickets cost $60 single, $100 a couple. Tickets may be obtained a the Brewery Arts Center’s Web site at www. Click on Community Events.

Be sure to get your slice of the ongoing and never aging American Pie. It lives, dancing on though you and every generation.
