News On Jake Berger And January 23rd Show

Hello everyone-

As you may know, my friend Jake Berger has hurt pretty bad in an accident two weeks ago. Jake and the Mannish Boys had a show planned at The Double Door Inn on January 23rd with Crisis. Randy Franklin has generously decided to make this a benefit show for Jake, featuring many of the folks that Jake has played with over his 50 year career. Spread the word, this one's gonna Rock. Get well soon, Jake, and see you all in 2016.

Update On The June 27th Show At The Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte

We’re bringing back the 3rd Annual Charlotte 60s Rock & Roll Reunion at the Neighborhood Theatre on June 27th. Here’s some info on the bands you’ll see.

We’re opening the show with the Mannish Boys, led by Charlotte music veteran (and NC 60s Rock & Roll book co-author) Jake Berger. Joining the Mannish Boys for their set will be Jim Charles, the man responsible for the garage rock classic “Abba”. Jim was the star of our first Rock & Roll Reunion, and we’re bringing him back.

Next will be the Mod VI, garage rock legends from Aiken, SC. The Mod VI released two singles in 1968, both of which became regional hits, and have been compiled on many garage rock collections. This will the Mod VI’s first show in Charlotte in 47 years, and promises to be a killer. 

What do you do to follow up the Mod VI? You reunite one of the Triangle’s most popular Rock bands for the first time in 45 years. The Bondsmen originated from Durham, and quickly became a regional powerhouse. Their cover of the Five Americans’ “I See The Light” would later become the opening track on the now legendary Tobacco A Go Go collection on NC 1960s Rock & Roll bands. Both the Bondsmen’s complete original lineup, and their 1969-1970 lineup will be reuniting for their first show anywhere since those heavy days. 

Finishing out the night will be the Kinksmen. Put together by some of the Durham’s best-known musicians, the Kinksmen bring the sound of the Kinks together onstage for a fun show, and a perfect way to round out the night. Daniel Coston will also MC the show, and perform with the Mannish Boys. 

Tickets are $15, and now available at, or at the Theatre’s box office. You can also get updates at-

Spread the word, and let’s Rock.
