Sal Baglio and The Sensational Rock N Roller Coaster Ride arrive at the Blue Ocean Music Hall
According to legions of New England rock and roll fans, summer is officially on when Sal Baglio (The Stompers, The Amplifier Heads) brings his crossover rock and roll “shaking the body and uplifting the spirit. at the legendary Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury, MA. Like the Swan Boats returning to the Public Garden and that first bite of a green head at the beach, another local tradition continues this year when Sal arrives at Blue Ocean on Saturday June 18 with his latest amalgamation, The Sensational Rock N Roller Coaster Ride , for another loud live show celebrating the season.
Sal says this show is “a sexagenarian love fest for hip swingers,” sure to pick up where The Stompers left off. Drawing on his extensive repertoire of original songs as well as tunes that have inspired his musical journey, Baglio promises to rock one of New England’s finest concert halls. “It’s a GlamOramic boogie woogie psychObilly stomp n roll with a side of fried dough and a balladeer in the middle.”
The Rock N Roller Coaster Ride features Sal with his longtime friends Marty Richards (drums), Brad Hallen (bass), and Don Kopko (guitar). Richards and Halen have performed on several Baglio projects, including his Amplifier heads recordings and Kopko was the co-writer with Sal on The Peppermint Kicks album released last year. In addition, on Blue Ocean, Bird Mancini will be the special guest.
A performer best known for his extremely energetic live shows, Baglio is thrilled to once again perform in front of live audiences. “When the spotlight hits you and the crowd roars, you fill yourself with all that energy and I think ‘Wow, I’m really lucky to keep doing this.’ Can’t wait to go back to Blue Ocean!”
Since the co-foundation The Stompers in 1977, Sal Baglio was at the forefront of the New England rock & roll scene. For the next 4 decades, The Stompers played to raucous, grateful crowds at nearly every college, truck stop, and concert hall in the area, and toured nationally with the J. Geils Band and the Beach Boys. . A prolific singer, guitarist and songwriter, Baglio continues to pursue his own projects by releasing amp heads, The Peppermint Kicks and performing his One-Man Sideshow in recent years. https://theamplifierheads.bandcamp.com
