Sunday Night Rocks | June 17th at 8/7c

Sunday Night Rocks is on, rain or shine!

Our Sunday lineup begins with the premiere of Ray Charles & Buddy Holly Rock Legends! Ray Charles practically founded soul music by bringing together the sincerity of gospel, the secular lyrics and narratives of blues & country, the big-band arrangements of jazz, and the rhythms and improvisational possibilities from all of them. Over the course of his 50-year career, Charles produced hits like “Unchain My Heart,” “Hit the Road Jack” and “Georgia on My Mind.” A blind genius, he is considered one of the greatest artists of all time, landing him a slot on Rock Legends.

Then, we move on to Buddy Holly. Holly was a rock & roll pioneer, known for his signature vocal hiccup. His playful, mock-ingenuous singing, with slides between falsetto and regular voice, was a major influence on major stars including Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and numerous imitators. Learn all about the rock legend that left us too soon when he died in an airplane crash at 22 on Rock Legends.

Then, strap on your Sammy shoes and get ready to live a day in the life of Sammy Hagar on Rock & Roll Road Trip! This week, Sammy travels from Oklahoma to Rockfest in Kansas City. Once arriving at Rockfest, Sammy goes backstage with some of the biggest names in rock including Zakk Wylde, and Sully Erna of Godsmack, followed by a performance with The Circle.

Finally, we end the night with the premiere of Classic Rock Live! Jim Peterik has been behind some of the greatest hits of the Rock Era as a producer, writer, singer and session player. This concert chronicles the six degrees of separation involving Jim Peterik and bands such as The Ides Of March (Vehicle), Starship (“We Built This City”), 38 Special (“Hold On Loosely”), and Ray Parker Jr. (“Ghostbusters”), as well as songs like “Eye Of The Tiger”. Guests include the lead singers who made these songs famous: Mickey Thomas, Jim Jameson, Dave Bickler, Martha Davis, Don Barnes, Donny Van Zandt, and more.
