If you remember the “old” days around Tampa Bay you’ll remember the Garden and SkyView Drive-In theaters, Clearwater Star Spectaculars, Snyder’s Cross Roads drive-in where the high school crowd circled the drive-in restaurant’s parking lot for hours, Saturday nights at the Gulfport Casino and Sunday afternoons at Municipal Beach on Treasure Island. All of these hang outs could have come straight out of American Graffiti. And of course, who could forget the original Impacs.

After 53 years in the music business, Tampa Bay’s original Impacs are still rockin’ and rollin‘.  Now celebrating their 52nd anniversary, the group, which began right here in 1960, still belts out the old time favorites like only someone who actually lived and performed thru that era can.

After forming in 1960, the Impacs went on to perform with such greats as Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, Neil Diamond, Chuck Berry, Little Richard and over 100 other top 10 recording artist of the era. Tagged early on by Dick Clark as one of the up and coming acts in early rock &  roll, they went on to become regulars on Clark’s “Cavalcade of Stars” road shows.

Now, 53 years later, they are still wowing audiences with a Rock & Roll revival show that they call Rock, Roll & Remember featuring performances that at times go four hours non-stop.  As original members Jay Angello and Bobby Barnes explain with a grin, “Once we get started, we’re having too much fun to stop.“  Another rarity, and unlike too many of today’s new breed of “entertainers” who sing along with CD’s and computers, the Impacs do it the old fashioned way. They actually play their own music. Like the Impacs say, “You’re Never Too Old to Rock & Roll!”  Come out and attend one of the Rock, Roll & Remember shows, and you’ll agree. The Impacs can still Rock Your Socks Off!
