"Between his jaw-dropping skills and just as pristine performances from all the accompanists, Rock Baby Rock is destined to delight not only ‘Million Dollar Quartet’ appreciators, but much of the era it surrounded." – Chicago Concert Review

Get ready for a musical history trip! Move and groove back to the beginnings of rock ‘n’ roll with entertainer and songwriter Lance Lipinsky and his Chicago-based group “the Lovers” in Rock Baby Rock! Culling together revitalized sounds from the late 1940s to the mid-1960s, this ever-shuffling 90-minute night features both obvious and slightly less common touchstones, including era-defining material from Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Bill Haley & The Comets, Chubby Checker, Ray Charles, Bo Diddley, The Dells, Ike Turner, and Jerry Lewis’ top tunes.

In an unforgettable live concert, Lipinsky delivers an explosive pumpin’ piano performance showcasing his influences of the 1950s and 60s in his original music. With driving Jerry Lee style piano rhythms and Elvis inspired swagger, he and the Lovers take on a modern evolution of a timeless throwback style in an all-its-own, swing-tastic, rockabilly stage show spectacular.
