Classic Highway Rock in the valley

The Accelerators are bringing their Classic Highway Rock show to the Yarra Valley when they perform at Rochford Concert Lounge on Saturday 21 March.

Classic Highway Rock promises feelings of nostalgia, freedom and invites the audience to sing their hearts out like a backseat driver.

Band member and Healesville resident Jeff Jenkins shared his inspiration behind the cover show.

“I came up with the idea of a show where every song is about cars … Ever since the invention of the automobile, people have been writing songs about them.

“So many people have written great songs about cars and their great connection to them … Chuck Berry sang Maybelline, and half of Bruce Springsteen’s songs have mentions of cars in them. Some people like to think of a car as a romantic motel on wheels.

“You associate it with that first feeling of independence you get as a young person. And I thought what a fun show to put together. It’s going to be a real dancing show. I really want to get people up and dancing and having a good time.

“I can’t wait to play a show in front of a real local crowd of Healesvillians. It’s a very cool thing to see people in the audience you know having a great time.”
