Vinyl Revival and director Shawn Swords will host a special presentation of Swords’ documentary, “Charlie Gracie Fabulous” at 2:00 PM with a guest appearance by Charlie Gracie!
“Charlie Gracie Fabulous” chronicles the life and career of Rock and Roll Pioneer, Charlie Gracie. His #1 hit “Butterfly” knocked Elvis from the top of the charts in 1957 and sold over three million copies worldwide. He was the first artist on the Cameo-Parkway Record Label to have hits, bankrolling the company, thus enabling it to launch the careers of a dozen successful artists. He was the first solo American rock and roll star to bring the music to the British concert stage.
Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Graham Nash, and Ray Davies are among his biggest musical admirers. The late George Harrison called his guitar technique “brilliant.” He continues to be a great ambassador for rock and roll, performing the roots of rock and roll all over the world.
