Staff report



DAYTON — On Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 8 pm in the Mead Theatre of the Schuster Center, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the leadership of Conductor Patrick Reynolds, will present the fifth concert in the 2018–2019 Dayton Freight Rockin’ Orchestra Series, Top Twenty Rock Hits of All Time. The Dayton Philharmonic welcomes to the stage Dayton favorite Jeans ‘n Classics for a night that celebrates the greatest rock hits of all time!

The Rockin’ Orchestra series continues this March with a visit from our friends up north in Canada—Jeans ‘n Classics. Founder and lead guitarist Peter Brennan and the talented musicians from this Dayton-favorite band join the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra for a night of the greatest rock hits to ever storm the charts.

For nearly 20 years, Jeans ’n Classics has been performing with orchestras around the country in shows combining world-class rock musicians and symphony orchestras, and the DPO is thrilled to have them back in the house at the Schuster. Joining Peter Brennan on stage are David Blamires, Jean Meilleur, Rique Franks, Kathryn Rose and Johnny Rutledge on vocals, Dave Dunlop as featured guitarist, John Regan on keyboard, Mitch Tyler on bass, and Jeff Christmas on drums. Providing the harmonizing Rockin’ background vocals for this concert will be the Dayton Vocal Project, under the direction of Hank Dahlman.

So what ARE the top twenty rock hits of all time? A performance celebrating the top rock hits of all time must include the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Moody Blues, and, no doubt, Queen! Will your favorites make the list?

Come feel the “Good Vibrations” of the approaching spring season and check out “What’s Goin’ On” at the Schuster on March 30. You’ll be dancing in your seat, dancing in the aisles, or even “Dancing in the Streets”! We promise that with Jeans ‘n Classics and the DPO together on stage, most definitely, “We Will ROCK You!”
