Johnny Rogers will transport his audience back in time when you could go to your favorite malt shops with your favorite girl and dance to your favorite bands. “Buddy & Beyond: The History of Rock ’n Roll” is a tribute to the music of the legends of rock ’n roll, on Sat., July 7, 8 p.m. at the State Theatre.

When Rogers was very young his father gave him his first guitar. He had no interest in playing until he heard Buddy Holly for the first time. The song was Rave On. He said it was like someone or something turned a switch on inside of him. From that moment on he knew what he wanted to be in life and that was someone like Buddy.

His show will start with Rogers’ uncanny portrayal of Buddy Holly and go on with tributes to legends Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ricky Nelson and Chuck Berry. The show climaxes with his portrayal of the King himself, Elvis Presley.

Performing on stage with some of the biggest names in the business and entertaining for four U.S. presidents, among his many fans Rogers is already considered by many to be one of the best entertainers on today’s music scene. His stage presence echoes the king of rock ’n roll and his guitar licks blend the skills of Chet Atkins and Jimi Hendrix. Rogers was nominated for best show in Branson, Mo. in 2009 and 2010. Rogers has performed at the London Paladium and the Cavern Club, as well as the Surf Ballroom (site of Holly’s final show), the Clovis Music Festival, and the Music City Theater in Branson, Missouri.

Tickets are $24 in advance, or $29 at the door.
