Rock & Roll Revival returns, students excited to be back on stage


SALISBURY, Md. — James M. Bennett High School is bringing back its beloved Rock and Roll Revival.

The students have been preparing for months for this extravagant show called “Time Machine”. We’re told it’s a long-standing tradition where students showcase their talents at a concert that showcases music from 20+.

Between the work of volunteers, families, students, teachers and sound and light technicians, the return of the rebirth is something that the students have been waiting for since 2020. “We children were just happy to be back onstage, it’s a great opportunity for all of us to show off our talents and come out in front of a big crowd,” said Max Myer, core member of the band at James Bennett High School. He adds, “There’s nothing quite like that first round of applause on opening night, an audition that elevates us.”

Adam Puente, a stage manager for the Rock and Roll Revival tells us, the work put into the show is a labor of love. He tells 47 ABC he’s just grateful to be a part of this again and to see the smiles on the faces of the students. “All the new talent coming out of this school is amazing. I think the community as a whole will just be floored by the total work these kids put in every year for this,” says Puente. He adds, “And seeing the kids grow , that’s the interesting part of it all, so we’re really excited to be back on stage again.”

The event begins next Friday, February 11 at 7 p.m. and tickets are on sale now. Organizers are encouraging community members to pre-purchase before they sell out.

They will also follow COVID-19 protocols, including masks and social distancing.
