It is unbelievable to support you have shown for this crazy band. YOU allow us to live out our rock n' roll fantasy! Honestly, the venues care about one thing...butts in the seats! It doesn't matter the music or how good or bad the band . All that matters is the people that attend...and you NEVER let us down.

You are all so amazing! We are looking forward to 2023 and we hope you continue to ride along!

Good Bye, Beverly

On June 20th, Claremont Drive lost one of our most loyal and dedicated fans, Beverly Haarman. In spite of her medical struggles, somehow someway, she found the energy to make it out to 99% of our shows. That's not an exaggeration. With the help of her longtime best friend Kaylia Breedlove, they would make the trek from Plano Il. to just about anywhere we performed even though many times she wasn't feeling very good. Thank you Kaylia for being such a great friend. It should inspire all of us to get up off the couch even though we might not feel like it.


Because of her health she was going to relocate to Florida. We had plans to dedicate our July 29th show to her but God had other plans. Memorial plans have yet to be determined. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.


Her smile, her presence and her friendship will be missed.


Good bye Grandma Ruth

God has called Grandma Ruth. She will be missed by many. She was an inspiration to all of us to get up and keep dancing.

We met Ruth Reardon 10 years ago when she was a spry 79 year old rock n' roller! As the years went on she continued to come out to our shows and we adopted her as the bands Grandma, as did all of our fans. Even as the years rolled on she always found a way to get up and dance a couple of times a night. 

She is gone but will never be forgotten. When we play Hang on Sloopy and Come  a little Bit Closer we will know she is looking down and smiling. She inspired a phrase we would quote from time to time.

"You don't stop dancing because you get old, you get old because you stop dancing!"

RIP Grandma.

Baby Boomer Rock n' Roll with some Halloween songs thrown in for good measure and a stage decor that will knock your socks off!

Once again our Claremont fans proved why they are the best. On a beautiful Sunday at 4:00 in the afternoon many of you choose to come indoors at the Quarry for a matinee show.

You all knocked The Quarry on their butts! 


Coming soon!

Well, it's almost time to get back to some Baby Boomer Rock n' Roll. We've all gone through a lot of changes over this last crazy year and so has the band.

We will be posting our 2021 schedule very soon. We have some new venues we will be performing at along with a lot of new songs. If you'd like to be on our email list simply drop us a line to 

We can't wait to see all of you. Dust off those dancing shoes as we put Covid in our rear view mirror.

Closing out 2020

Well, unfortunately we have to call 2020 a year. Playing indoors just isn't a good idea and playing outdoors is simply to cold. 

As always we want to thank you for your wonderful support throughout the years. Your support allows us to live our dream. Your support and enthusiasm convinces venues to invite us to perform there. 

It's been a weird and crazy year, but this to shall pass and Baby Boomer Rock n' Roll will come back stronger than ever.

Please stay safe and we will see you all again as soon as possible!!
