Saturday, September 18, 2021

Edd Raineri, host of “The Beatledd Fab Four Hour” on WRKC-FM, will present The Yardbirds, Big Brother & The Holding Company (Janis Joplin’s ORIGINAL band) and Peter Asher & Jeremy Clyde at the F.M. Kirby Center on Saturday, September 18 at 7:30 p.m.

The Yardbirds’ big 60’s hits include “For Your Love”; “Heart Full of Soul”; “Shapes of Things”; “Over Under Sideways Down”. Jim McCarty, original drummer, continues to keep the beat. “The musicianship in this band is just outstanding”, says promoter Edd Raineri. “I was simply blown away when I saw them perform in concert”.

Big Brother & The Holding Company, the band that backed the legendary Janis Joplin in the 60’s, scored big with “Piece of My Heart”; “Down On Me”; “Summertime’; “Ball and Chain”. “We’re flying them in from California for this show”, says Raineri. Last year, 2020, marked the 50th anniversary of Joplin’s death.

Peter Asher, once a member of the British duo, “Peter & Gordon”, and Jeremy Clyde, once a member of the British duo, “Chad & Jeremy”, have joined together to showcase their many 60’s hits including “A World Without Love”; “I Go to Pieces; “A Summer Song”; “Yesterday’s Gone”, and more.
