You have one more chance to brush up on your Rock ‘n’ Roll education on Thursday, May 11th at 7:30 p.m at the Uptown Marble Theater, 218 Main Street, Marble Falls.

Clifford Antone, owner of the famous Antone's nightclub in Austin, is teaching us The History of Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll. This lesson will cover Chess Records and the Chicago blues scene. You’ll hear and see film clips of artists such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, and Etta James. Debbi Walton and Sweet Soul Vibe will provide live versions of the songs you’re still singing along with after all these years.

Everyone has had a great time with this series. Clifford is full of funny stories, memories and off-the-wall information. Rick Melchior has assembled Clifford's collection of film clips, interviews and live recordings into a montage of images that will keep you amazed and entertained.

I'll paraphrase a quote from Clifford: "Turn off the TV, get out and support live entertainment." You won't regret it!

This series is sponsored by: Old Oak Square and Oldies KITY 102.9 and 106.1 Hits from the 60’s and 70’s

P.S. For those of you who just can't get enough, Clifford also has shows concerning Texas Blues and Delta Blues which we hope to bring to the Uptown Marble Theater later this year. We'll keep you posted!
