The Remnants (of Rock)

The Remnants (of Rock)

Rock and Roll was born in the late 1950s, and by the end of the 1960s, the music had produced such legends as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Motown and the Memphis sound. Unquestionably, the music defined a generation and continues to be embraced by younger generations. The St. James Group was formed in Arkansas in 1968 in the middle of this historic era and performed professionally until 1978. The original members all grew up within walking-distance of each other in the small town of Morrilton, Arkansas. The band shared the stage with some of the biggest artists of the 1970s and performed on college campuses from New Orleans to Chicago and all points in between. The group reunited in 2003 and quickly developed a large and loyal following. Unfortunately, The St. James Group quit performing after the unexpected death of Chuck Gordon, the band’s original keyboard player.

The Remnants (of Rock) is the musical legacy of The St. James Group. The new band is made up from the original members that started out together in 1968, with the addition of new keyboard player. The band’s goal is to recreate the music of the 1960s as authentically as possible. Imagine walking into the student union for the homecoming dance on any college campus during the years 1965-1969 and hearing the best dance band you’ve ever heard! Close your eyes and think back, because this is the performance The Remnants will deliver. The band plays only the top hits from 1959-1969 – which is often called the sweet spot of the era.
