Cavenaugh Chevrolet’s Rock n’ Roll Hwy Stage
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
If you are not a fan of the Beatles, the Kinks, the Rolling Stones, Gerry and the Pacemakers and various other British Invasion groups as well as the Byrds and other 60’s groups (remember when melody was king?) then Jeffrey and The Pacemakers are not for you.
Now, if you really dig the aforementioned music, then take a close look and listen to Jeffrey and The Pacemakers. This musical journey is the love of Memphis music veteran Jeff Golightly. In 1980, Jeff was a member of the now legendary Memphis power pop band THE CRIME. Together with his band mates, they tore up the southeastern United States with their arresting brand of Memphis rock-n-roll. Jeff also played the John Lennon parts in the all Beatle band Daytripper.
THE CRIME was the brainchild of Rick Camp who plays bass with The Pacemakers. Rick has been a professional musician since the age of 10 and his gift of harmony is key to The Pacemakers sound.
Danny Umfress plays the blistering lead guitar and has shared the stage with such superstars as Johnny Cash, Pat Boone and Larry Raspberry.
Robert Hall keeps the beat and has played drums with The Gentrys and the ground breaking Memphis Power Pop band Zuider Zee. For the past 18 years, Robert has and continues to tour the world with Jerry Lee Lewis and The Killer band.
The Pacemakers are true professionals and together with their authentic Rickenbacker guitars, Ludwig drums and Vox amps, they are THE choice when it comes to the 60’s British Invasion sound.
They were tapped to play before Sir Paul McCartney outside of the Fed Ex Forum during Paul’s latest visit to the Bluff City. So if you really love The Beatles, The Kinks, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Peter and Gordon, The Zombies, Manfred Mann, The Who, The Byrds, The Animals, Donovan, The Dave Clark Five, Herman’s Hermits, The Rolling Stones, The Searchers, The Troggs, The Yardbirds etc..you’ll LOVE this trip down memory lane. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
