ALL THE NEWS

The Heart of Rock & Roll brings to life all the hits of the 80’s super group Huey Lewis & the News.

The concept was born in late 2012 when brothers Tony & Roger Langdon, guitarist & front man respectively, for a variety cover band were performing their usual weekend shows.  For years the song The Heart of Rock & Roll was a set list staple mixed in among their band’s other classic rock, pop & R&B songs.  One particular night, a show guest made the comment that Roger, “Kind of looks & sounds like Huey Lewis.”

Tony suggested to Roger to go ahead and try a full blown Huey Lewis impersonation to see if there was something to that fan’s comment.  After working out a few songs, it became clear that there was something special going on.  Roger brings the sound, image & style of Huey Lewis to life with such great detail he’s fooled more than a few fans.

As for the band’s catalog, Huey Lewis & the News had a run of 19 Top 40 singles during the 80’s & early 90’s. They became a fixture on MTV with their videos becoming almost iconic images tied inextricably with many of their hit songs. “The Heart of Rock & Roll”, “I Want a New Drug”, “If This Is It" & "Heart & Soul" are just some of the hits from their 1984 multi-platinum album, Sports. And they’ll forever be remembered for their soundtrack contributions to the blockbuster film Back to the Future, which included the #1 hit, “The Power of Love.”

From small shows to large festivals, the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive and we’re encouraged to keep bringing the news to everyone.
The Heart of Rock & Roll is still beating…
