On December 30, 2011, The Practical Theatre Company’s semi-legendary house band Riffmaster & The Rockme Foundation closed the triumphant two-week engagement of “The Vic & Paul Show” at Mayne Stage in Chicago with a raucous night of traditional American garage rock & roll. Here’s a brief glimpse of that gig: two original Rockme songs, performed with the band’s characteristic playful passion. (Dig the groovy rock & roll fans dancing in the foreground!)
“Gallery Girl” by Riffmaster Peter Van Wagner (sung by Paul Barrosse & Brad Hall) and “New Orleans” by Paul B. & Rush Pearson (sung by Paul and Rush).
Audio and video recording by Robert Mendel. Thanks, Robbie!

Yahoo! Let’s do it again. I think sister Suzy snapped those great still shots of the Rockmes
( or was it Avedon)?
What a grand evening with the Practical family!
I couldn’t remember who sent me that set of four snapshots. If it was Suzy I want to make sure to give her credit.
I wanted to capture the Rockmes before they ALL turned 60!
Can anyone really “capture” the Rockmes? They are elusive — just trying to get them all in one room, I hear, is quite an undertaking in logistics and personality management!
How very true Herb. Very true.
