After 18 years, Gerry Beretti decided he wanted to play performances again, and we’re glad he did. Along with John Bloch, Dion Hope and Mirko Shure, The Roots of Rock was created in 2012, and after some practice sessions had a great gig June 8th, at Brücken-Eck, Kiehlufer 55 in the Neukölln area of Berlin, Germany.
Described at Reverb Nation as sounding like “The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Free”, this cover band plays some of the greatest classic rock music from the 60’s & 70’s. Along with Zam Johnson, Jørn Erdmann and Hanno Boller, philosophy professor and singer/guitarist for band Lord Uwe Schmirgel, we met up “at the place to be” to support and cheer on The Roots of Rock.
The Roots of Rock’s next performance will be open air, perfect for the kind of music they play! It takes place at Schlossinsel, in the Köpenick district of Berlin, Germany, Wednesday, 19 June 2013. The concert begins at 18:00 or 6pm, and it’s free! All ages are welcome.
