“THE ORIGINS OF ROCK – 1955 TO 1965,” Annual Rock n’ Roll Service

ALL ARE WELCOME! You BELONG at Beacon – Spiritually open and intentionally inclusive since 1958.

During the decade of 1955 to 1965, quite a few Unitarian-Universalists developed many of their attitudes and values. One of the major influences on their thinking was the beginning of rock n’ roll. This annual rock n’ roll service will honor some of those early rock artists – Little Richard; Chuck Berry; Elvis Presley; Buddy Holly; the Everly Brothers; Bob Dylan; Peter, Paul, and Mary; the Beach Boys; the Beatles; and the Rolling Stones. Dr. Andy Hogg will be joined by Kim Angelo, Tom Barberic, Steve Ochi, and Simon Cunningham in discussing how that decade of music changed their lives, including their beliefs about social justice. Music is one of the best ways to have a spiritual experience. Come to sing along and dance to the music. “Just don’t step on my blue suede shoes.”
