Rock to the Rescue

When: Sat., Jan. 10 2015

Most famous for his 1959 hit “The Twist,” singer Chubby Checker was recently in Cleveland for a couple days to promote tonight’s show at the Hard Rock Rocksino. (He also made a run out to Mentor where Chubby Snacks Beefy Jerky is produced.) Dubbed Rock and Roll to the Rescue, the show is a benefit concert designed to raise money for the Geauga County Human Society’s Rescue Village. A groundbreaking musician who introduced dancing to the rock world, Checker broke down barriers. “All I knew is that everyone was dancing,” says Checker, who was in 11th grade when he started imitating artists such as Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers. “We brought that to the dance floor and people weren’t even interested in what was going on socially. They just wanted to go out and have fun.” The show begins at 8 p.m. and tickets start at $25. (Niesel)
