THE STORY BEHIND “ROCK ON TO THE SOUND OF CHANGE”

In recent years, the music world has seen the losses of Gord Downie, David Bowie, Prince, George Michael, Tom Petty, to name a few.  These artists have left a lasting impact on society and prompted “Frankly Speaking” (Frank Gioia & Frank Greco) to create “Rock On to the Sound of Change”.  The rock history production, is an in-depth look into the lives of many legendary artists and the events that led up to the creation of many timeless songs.   It presents the live performance of music combined with spoken-words and powerful visual imagery.  The show shines the spotlight back on those moments in rock and reflects on social change.
