With a cast consisting of Broadway stars from Broadway’s greatest rock musicals, as well as incredible rock and roll singers, Neil Berg tells the exciting and incredible story of the 50-year history of the music that changed the world forever.

From the progenitors of rock and roll in the ’40s through the glory years of the ’50s and ’60s and ’70s, and right up until the launch of MTV in the early ’80’s, Neil Berg’s 50 Years of Rock & Roll tells fascinating stories. The show features groundbreaking music, with tributes to important and iconic rock stars and groups such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan, Frankie Valli, The Beatles, Beach Boys, Motown, Aretha Franklin and more.

Vocalists scheduled to perform at this performance include Jeannette Bayardelle, Lawrence Clayton, Dan Domenech, Brook Wood and Danny Zolli. The band will feature Neil Berg, musical director, on piano; along with Jon Berger, drums; Abraham Saenz, bass; Mike Wilson, guitar; and Alex Wise, keyboards. Brett Nichols serves as tour manager.

Berg is currently the composer/co-lyricist, along with Pulitzer Prize/Tony winning playwright Robert Schenkkan, of the Award-Winning rock musical “The Twelve.” The show opened at the Denver Center in the spring of 2015 to rave reviews and won the 2015 Henry Award for best new play or musical. Berg also is the composer/lyricist of the hit Off-Broadway musical “The Prince and the Pauper,” which ran for two years at the Lambs Theater in New York City.

As a Producer, Berg is the creator and co-producer, along with his producing partner, Adam Friedson, of Neil Berg's 100 Years of Broadway, which is now the No. 1 Broadway touring concert in the United States, playing in more than 120 cities a year for the past decade.

Other shows Berg has developed include 50 Years of Rock & Roll, Neil Berg’s Pianomen and Neil Berg’s The Beatles.
