Reock & Roll Revue to Perform Ernie White’s Music at MCCC’s Kelsey Theatre Aug. 1 and 2
White to Debut “Coming of Age” Album at Concert

7/8/15


West Windsor, N.J. – Reock & Roll Revue, led by keyboard player Tom Reock, returns to Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) Kelsey Theatre for two special dates in August. Their concert, “A Life in Music – Then and Now,” will feature music from the 40-year career of famed Trenton songwriter-guitarist Ernie White. The show will include special appearances by numerous performers, including White himself, who will debut his 2015 "Coming of Age” album in its entirety. This is his first album of all new material in many years.

Dates and show times are Saturday, Aug. 1 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 2 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

According to White, “Coming of Age” is a concept album that focuses on life's big moments: from childhood to the first kiss, the first car and the first child to the first break-up, the loss of one’s innocence to war and the trials of this world. “Yet always dreaming of a better future, ‘Coming of Age’ is a musical journey through life. I hope you enjoy the ride,” White says.

White’s own musical journey extends from his home town of Trenton to the world stage. He was signed to Casablanca Records in the early 1980s as a member of the performance troupe Sam and the Band, and, in the late 80's, to RCA Records with the heavy metal band Aviator. White has released five solo CDs and has played throughout North and South America. He has also written music for network television.

Reock & Roll returns to Kelsey Theatre to perform the
music of Ernie White, who will join the band for the
debut of his new album, "Coming of Age."

In recent years, White has been a mainstay of the Trenton music scene, donating much of his time to events such as his annual Christmas Show, which has raised more than $150,000 for local charities. He has been a teacher and mentor to many young guitarists throughout the region.

Tickets are $25 for all and are available online or by calling the Kelsey Theatre Box Office at 609-570-3333.  For a listing of upcoming events at Kelsey Theatre, including the 2015-16 season, see the schedule here or call the box office.
