Who's playing?

Some of this year's expected performers from those old 60's bands include:

Bumpy Disston, Paul Klinefelter, Sam Scott, Charlie Thompson, Carl Norris, Rob Pilling, Steve Pearson, Jay Emlen, Tom Stone, Bill Hall, Barry Shannon, Jimmy Disston, Nicky Irwin, my sister Leslie and her husband Denny (Maniac '83) among others, like George Wallace (Central '70). See below for a list of all the former musical groups represented by these players.

Classic rock from the 60's era plus some originals are on our menu, along with Roller's Catering of Chestnut Hill. Last time, our peers had as much fun as their children did, and a few of the musicians' moms were in the house.

Hope to see you at the 2015 Rock 'n' Roller, affectionately known as Rugapalooza #4.

Best, Rug.
