About this show

The Lyric Opera House presents Smokey Joe's Cafe, sending you roaring back to the golden years of rock with a plethora of songs written by the renowned team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. Leiber and Stoller were musical masters responsible for songs performed by the Coasters, Big Mama Thornton, The Drifters, even the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Smokey Joe's Cafe captures the heart and soul of a decade of music making. Its rock n roll rhythms and heart touching ballads are enough to keep you bopping in your seat. More than thirty songs like "Spanish Harlem," "Yakety Yak," "Hound Dog," and "Stand By Me" blend invigorating harmonies into a stimulating revue. If you miss the music that came through the radio as you twisted, shimmied, and hailed the King, then Smokey Joe's Cafe is for you.
