The band has sold out many theaters and venues open to the general public while working with local Arts Councils.
The Remnants of Rock put on a fantastic show at the Rialto Theater on June third. The crowd knew every word to every song in their set and even got up to dance in their seats! The performance was capped by a sing-a-long in front of the stage and followed by a couple of encores.
“What a spectacular evening we had enjoying the band! To think of 50 years of music with friends is so unusual and uplifting it’s actually inspiring! The voices were strong, clear and beautiful! The harmonies were right on never missing a note. The “patter” was equally right on! The audience enjoyed the performance and I am body sore from bouncing in the chair to the rhythms! Thank you for an unforgettable evening.”
I label this act as the "Best of The Best"! I ever never been to a Tribute Concert where the song selection was as good as your concert. All members of your band were top notch entertainers including yourself – superior vocals! As a 50-year veteran of the stage I will always have a critique, but it certainly isn’t anything having to do with the quality of your music and performance. Terrific! Loved the show. We enjoyed it immensely.” – Tom Wilkins, Manager The Legendary Vapors / Hot Springs, Arkansas
The Remnants of Rock first came to Hot Springs Village's Woodlands Auditorium about 3 years ago. They brought down the house! We're a community that loves the oldies, and we really loved all their selections, and their back stories about touring with some of the well known bands 'back in the day.' The Remnants recently made it back to HSV for a benefit performance. We can't wait until they're booked back here again. It will be a sell-out for sure.
On seeing the Remnants of Rock for the first time, it was in a large venue, a packed house.
It didn’t take long to find out why.
Their style is easy, fun, and completely entertaining. Each band member was highlighted, weaving in and out throughout the show….each song recognizable and bringing back memories.
When leaving, both my husband and I noticed the up beat and happy mood of the crowd.
