This program reunites original legends of rock’n’roll for a once-in-a-lifetime performance. Hosted by pop music legends Frankie Valli, Jerry (The Iceman) Butler and Lloyd Price, the program also boasts a surprise appearance by Little Richard. Among the many performers is Fred Parris, who comes out of retirement after a decade to join the Five Satins in a performance of In the Still of the Night, the number-one oldies single of all time. Hal Miller joins the Rays after 40 years of retirement to sing Silhouettes; and Kathy Young is reunited with the Innocents to sing A Thousand Stars for the first time since they recorded the hit when Young was just 14 years old.
