The classic rock & roll music recorded for Rock & Roll Diner will set the stage for some good times. You'll hear songs—like "My Girl," "Shake Rattle and Roll," "Blueberry Hill,"—by some of the pioneers of rock & roll that will thrill you to the marrow no matter when you first heard them. Sharon O'Connor brought together top San Francisco Bay Area musicians to record some of the jukebox hits they grew up on. Long days in the studio were spent recording vocalists and instrumentalists playing the guitar, drums, bass, piano, organ, violin, cello, trumpet, and tenor, alto, and baritone saxophones. During the sessions everyone had a tremendous amount of fun.
Rock & Roll Diner was produced and recorded by Sharon O'Connor. Sharon O'Connor travels the world collaborating with great chefs and musicians, bringing together food, art, music, and travel to create Menus and Music® and MusicCooks®, her two best-selling series.
