A musical journey through the decade that shaped popular culture
The 1950s are credited with starting rock ‘n roll but there is so much more to the music of the decade. In fact, we found 10 different styles of music that hit the charts in the 50s. Join SixFeetUp as we showcase over 40 top ten songs and use stories and humor to revisit some of the key elements that shaped the pop culture of the period.
We will explore the origin of rock ‘n roll and doo-wop and how folk, rhythm and blues and international influences began to be felt on pop charts throughout the nation. We look at how jazz changed from the swing era to stay popular and how some of the best novelty songs of all time topped the charts.
Towards the end of the decade, rock ‘n roll exploded in popularity. SixFeetUp will use our live horns and vocals to remember the energy and spirit of Elvis and his contemporaries. 1950s Rediscovered is a fast-paced concert that engages audiences and reminds them of what they already knew – the 50s rock!
