ARTIST/SET LIST

A celebration of music, a tribute to America, American Soundtrack: Red, White & Rock is yet another talent-packed production of WQED Pittsburgh's American Soundtrack Concert Series.

American Soundtrack: Red, White & Rock is a musical explosion of diversity and slice of Americana rolled up in one concert unlike any other. Legendary artists Frankie Avalon, Jerry Butler, Connie Francis and Frankie Valli host the live reunion with over forty groups performing for PBS audiences and for the preservation of the "American Soundtrack."

Celebrating America and its various music genres, American Soundtrack: Red, White & Rock takes the musical journey from The Kingsmen's "Louie, Louie", to "The Tears of a Clown" by the Miracles, to the romantic classic "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers to Connie Francis' "Where the Boys Are".

The All-American, all star line up also features Tommy James & the Shondells, The Toys, Dee Dee Sharp, The Chords, Shirley Alston Reeves (The original voice of the Shirelles), The Dixie Cups, Sonny Geraci, the Four Tops and many more.
