Rockmes @ Mayne Stage

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!)

The songs?

“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 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!
