Rock n Roll Love Letter is a one-man theater show that covers 70 yrs of Rock n Roll, told through the eyes of a fan.
Part concert, part history lesson, part comedy and part conversation, it asks the question “Do you remember when you traded in your Ray bans in for “readers?”
No matter what our station in life today is, we all had the same posters on our wall. “Love Letter” will put you there… before you landed the job or bought the house. Back when Rock n Roll was everything.
This is NOT a tribute, or revival act. There will be NO Elvis costumes harmed or abused during my show.
This is a story about how it REALLY happened, what it REALLY meant. How Rock n Roll changed music, culture, vocabulary, society and the world.
“ When I was just a kid in 1972, I heard Deep Purple’s ‘Smoke On The Water’ for the first time, and my world stood still for five minutes and forty - one seconds. I knew right then and there I wanted to play guitar.”
It started over four decades ago. It was a golden age for rock & roll. A guitar found its way into his hands. The rest, is as they say history. From the very moment, an adolescent Robert Garcia picked up his first guitar, he’s been making people grin, clap and join in.
Born and raised in New York, Robert Garcia started a musical journey then, that today it could be said that at its most powerful transcends musical barriers, uniting people who on the surface may seem to have very little in common .
A Staten Island native, Rob discovered by 8 th grade how a guitar and a great song could connect audiences with him, as well as with each other, creating a like minded community of friends, and fans. When asked “what do you do for a living?” He consistently replies, “I help people forget about life for awhile”.
