The Crystals & Chris Montez

This classic rock n roll show features two powerful rock acts from the USA and an Australian act that can trace its pedigree back to the start of rock n roll in Australia. 


The defining American female vocal group of the sixties is the Crystals. Their Wall of Sound recordings, produced by the legendary Phil Spector, include ‘And then he kissed me’, ‘Da do ron ron’, ‘He’s a rebel’, ‘He’s sure the boy I love, ‘Uptown’ and many more. Three Crystals’ songs are included in the Rolling Stone magazine list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. The Crystals are headed up by Dee Dee Kenniebrew, who was in the original line up of the Crystals.


In 1962 Chris’ single ‘Let’s dance’ topped the charts worldwide. When touring the UK in 1963 his opening act was the English group – the Beatles. Herb Alpert suggested he consider a soft ballad sound and this resulted in a string of worldwide hits including ‘The more I see you’, ‘There will never be another you’, ‘Call me’ and ‘Time after time’. With his Mexican influence his popularity soared as groups such as Los Lobos topped the charts. The movie ‘La Bamba’ identified Chris and his musical roots, which is part of the Ritchie Valens legacy. Chris has just concluded a two month tour of the UK. 


The Allstars can trace their pedigree back to the late fifties when rock n roll began. They have performed in the best venues in Australia and have shared the stage with Tom Jones, Rick Nelson, Del Shannon, Gene Pitney, the Shadows, Chubby Checker, the Platters, the Coasters, Freddie & the Dreamers, Buddy Knox, Chan Romero, Gerry Marsden, Bobby Rydell, Johnny Preston, Johnny Tillotson and Buddy Holly’s Crickets. There are more than forty video and audio recordings of the Allstars in the National Film and Sound Archive and the Performing Arts Museum. As the legendary DJ Stan Rofe said, “the Allstars are clearly the most authentic and professional rock n roll group in Australia”.
