The Neverly Brothers will bring "A Rock 'n' Roll Tribute -- From Elvis to the Beatles" Friday, Nov. 16 to the Benton Civic Center.

The group's concerts are a tribute to one of the most exciting chapters in music history: the birth, near death and resurrection of rock n' roll. Their stage performances take audiences on a musical guided tour of rock history from 1955 to 1965.

The first half of their concert pays tribute to the music created by the 1950s American rock 'n' roll pioneers, which by 1960 had become a distant memory but became the inspiration for the next wave of young rock bands from Britain. The second half then pays tribute to the 1964 British Invasion bands that re-recorded the forgotten 1950s American rock music, along with lesser-known early 1960s rhythm and blues songs and their own originals.

Their repertoire consists of show-stopping renditions of early hits by Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Dave Clark Five and more.

Showtime is at 7 p.m. Tickets are available online at BentonCivicCenter.com or by calling the office at 618-435-5700.
