Time to Rock and Roll with "Quadrophenia"

2/28/11


West Windsor, N.J.- Attention "Who" fans. It's time to celebrate rock and roll history with The Reock & Roll Revue. This popular New Jersey band performs the classic rock opera "Quadrophenia" for two performances only at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. Performances take place Saturday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on MCCC's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Known as one of the greatest rock operas of all time, "Quadrophenia" is the sixth studio album by the renowned English rock band, The Who. Released in 1973, this double album was The Who's second rock opera, following the hugely popular Tommy (1969). Set in London and Brighton in 1964 and 1965, "Quadrophenia" captures the social, musical and psychological upheaval of a turbulent and carefree era from the perspective of an English teen.

The Reock and Roll Revue was formed in 2006 and features members and guest performers who have been fixtures on the Central Jersey music scene for over 30 years. With Joe D'Angelo as guest lead vocalist, members of the six-piece band are Tom Reock, of Hamilton, on keyboards and vocals; Chris Grace, of Hopewell, on bass and vocals; Jerry Steele, of Princeton, on electric guitar, guitar synthesizer, banjo and vocals; Mario DiBartolo, of Hamilton, on lead guitar and vocals; Michael White, of Hamilton, on drums, percussion and vocals; and Bud Belviso, of Hamilton, on acoustic guitar and keyboards. This show will also feature a very special videotaped posthumous performance by Joey Caprio (aka Joey Sessions) as "The Bellboy."

The Revue has performed a diverse and eclectic mix of original, well-known and obscure rock material, including the Beatles' White Album in its entirety, to multiple sellout crowds. The group previously performed Quadrophenia in 2009 to critical acclaim.

Tickets are $20 for all. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Kelsey Box Office at 609-570-3333. Kelsey Theatre is wheelchair accessible and free parking is available next to the theater.
