Sky Daddy to revisit the era of cool

Sky Daddy still thinks it's 1962, so you might as well too. After 45 years of self-induced cryogenics, Sky Daddy has awoken from 45 years of a deep freeze, but apparently has not gotten hip to the times.

Sky Daddy and the Pop Rocks bring their '60s rock 'n roll show to Glassford Hill Church from 7 to 8 p.m.

Admission is $5, or "about as much it costs to fill up your gas tank," said singer Sky "Daddy" Conwell.

Conwell said the Pop Rocks play covers of songs from the likes of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and other artist from the '50s and early '60s in the vein of rockabilly, a little surf, and a lot of audience participation.

Conwell and Pop Rocks rhythm guitar player Paul LaFortune also play in local band Arizona Territory.

Drummer Bob Simmons formerly played in an '80s band called Tramp that had a video on MTV, Conwell said.

Glassford Hill Church is at 8075 Prescott Ridge Road, about one mile east of the Fairgrounds.
