Henry DeLuca, who has been promoting the Roots Of Rock ‘N Roll concerts for nearly 35 years, recalls that the first time he ever "went into the black" on a show was one that starred Jimmy Beaumont & the Skyliners.
They're the group, he says, that put Pittsburgh on the rock 'n' roll map in 1959 with "Since I Don't Have You."
It's only fitting that the Skyliners would headline the Roots Of Rock ‘N Roll: Farewell Concert on Feb. 22 at the Benedum.
This last waltz will also feature Kenny Vance & The Planotones, Shirley Alston Reeves, The Marcels, The Chantels, Bobby Hendricks, Kid Kyle and Pure Gold. There are shows at 4 and 8:15 p.m. $48.75-$33.75; 412-456-6666.
“For my last show," DeLuca says, "I wanted to make sure I had a fantastic lineup with performers the fans truly love."
