Bill Haley's Comets rock around the clock in Norwich Friday

NORWICH – What better a way to spend the holiday season than with some old time rock and roll favorites the whole family can enjoy?

Toys for Tots and Millennia Entertainment present Bill Haley’s Comets: Greatest Hits and Christmas Favorites at 7 p.m. Friday at the Chenango County Council of the Arts.



After bursting into the music industry in the 1950s, Bill Haley along with his Comets later would be remembered as one of the earliest groups of all-white musicians that introduced rock and roll to America and the rest of the world.

Later being compared to the Beatles and Rolling Stones who gained popularity a decade later, Bill Haley and the Comets were the rock and roll band of the 50s. With Haley’s spit curl haircut and the band’s matching plaid dinner jackets, the Comets will be forever remembered as a iconic symbol of that musical era.
