New England Rock and Roll History

I recently discovered the Music Museum of New England which contains intriguing, first-hand accounts of growing up in the early years
of rock and roll. The Surf at Nantasket Beach was the swingingest.

Sonny and Cher at Canobie Lake Park shortly after becoming big.

The Rockin' Ramrods were the house band at The Surf.

The Stones played the Manning Bowl and mayhem ensued.

Suffolk Downs in East Boston hosted The Beatles in 1966.
