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!!

Welcome Ron Tripp!

Thank you everyone! Once again Fan Appreciation Night was a huge success. We believe 2020 will be a fun year. We are excited to tell you in August we will be playing at The Locport Car Show for the first time. Also the Croation Club has invited us to play on Halloween Night Party. Once again we have been invited to play for the Berwyn Moose Lodge Corn Beef Dinner Party in March. The A.L. Riders have asked us back in October for their Prime Rib Dinner Fundraiser.

We look forward to once again performing at the Lisle Car Show. We will definitely be making an appearance at Cozzi Corner and we hare hoping to be back in the mix for The Westmont Car Show.We have reason to believe we will making a couple of stops at The Country House Restaurant, too.

Of course there will be much more than the aboved mentioned but we wanted to give you the early heads up. Hope to see all of you very soonand very often!

WOW! 2019 is upon us. We have started listing our shows for the early part of the year. We are looking forward to seeing you again. We continue to strive to get better, add new songs and new venues. Thank you all for being part of the Claremont Drive Family. LET"S ROCK N" ROLL!

10/27 Show Revision!

Our 10/27 show has been moved to Q Bar. It is a Hallloween Show and would love to see you participate but costumes are not mandatory.

It is an early show and there will be two bands. We open the evening with music from 6:00 to 8:30. Following us will be "The Remedy" with music from the 70's and 80's which we think you will enjoy. They will start at 9:00. 

Let the little kid inside you come out and play!

We have been blessed by God with a thimble full of talent. We hope to put it to good use to help little Sophia who recently went through a herat transplant.

In conjunction with Cozzi Corner, The Big Bopper Cruise Night  we hope to raise a little money for Sophia and her family. We are hoping you will join us in this effort. Check out the Hot Rods. Grab a bite to eat and perhaps drop a dollar or two in what we are calling our " Jukebox Tip Jar".  Works just like a Jukebox. Hear a song you like put a dollar in the Jukebox Tip Jar. Hear a song you don't like? Put $2 in the Jukebos Tip Jar.

Cozzi Corner is located on the N.W. corner of 75th and Lemont. Music will start around 6:15 and go until 8:30.

We hope to find the time to join us for such a worthwhile cause! 

Major Announcment!
