Timmons Brothers - “The Roots and Branches of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Family Tree Part 2″

Air date: Saturday, May 24, 2014 at 6:00 pm The roots of rock ‘n’ roll originate in multiple genres of music, but on a more narrow sense, rock artists can be the root of their own rock ‘n’ roll family tree. In Part II, the focus is on two artists (Poco and the career of Eric Clapton). The Timmons Brothers trace the roots of each and the number of artists/bands from their family tree of rock ‘n’ roll. The Poco branch extends to Loggins and Messina, The Eagles, and The Buffalo Springfield among others while the elongated branch of Clapton to many artists will be explored.

Timmons Brothers in the News Updates

With 2014 marking the 50th anniversary of the Beatles arrival in the U.S.A., the Timmons Brothers have been giving their thoughts on the occasion. Below, John was included in an article in a South Carolina newspaper that landed on the front page of the Sunday edition. Click hereto read the article.

David is currently serving his second year on city council and continuing his research on the origin and the early years of Led Zeppelin. John will be serving on a panel at a University campus in the upcoming fall season. The topic will be “Americans and their British Obsessions.” He will be discussing the success of British rock’n’roll in the United States. More details to come. He just completed teaching an Honors Symposium on the 1960s Popular Music and Culture for the fall term. In the class, a range of topics from folk music to surf music to the British Invasion to the Summer of Love and Woodstock were explored. Of course, a huge dose of The Beatles was also included. The Timmons Brothers were also the special guests on Fayette Focus, as they discussed their debut presentation, “Hollywood and Rock ‘n’ Roll: Through the Lens of Cinema”. Fayette Focus can be heard by accessing anywhere and anytime via podcast. Recently, our show was selected in the Columbus Dispatch in Ohio in the “Weekender” of Thursday, June 27 for one of the top five things to do over the weekend. Here on the attachment below is a scan from the newspaper. Kenny Chesney was the top on the cover, but we were one of the “hidden gems”. It is quite a thrill to receive such recognition and reach so many new people to see one of our shows for the first time.

Here is this excellent article from the Madison Press of July 11 and The Tribune of July 9 (the picture and full text of the article are reproduced below):

The Timmons Brothers, John, left, and Dave, right,  like that they got a correct answer during their “Rock ‘n’ Roll Trivia Show” at the Mt. Sterling Community Center during the village’s Fourth of July celebration, “Let Freedom Ring,” on Saturday, June 29.


Timmons Brothers are rock ‘n’ rollers


For The Tribune

The categories flashed up on the screen Jeopardy-style.

You could sense that the crowd was just itching their heads to get going.

The Timmons Brothers were ready to rock, not that they would shake the Mt. Sterling Community Center’s gym to its foundations. Rather they would attempt to shake, rattle, and roll the recall capabilities of the 65 folks-plus who had come to be either challenged or entertained with the Timmons’ “Rock ‘n’ Roll Trivia Show,” sponsored by the Mt. Sterling Public Library. It was part of Mt. Sterling’s Fourth of July Celebration, “Let Freedom Ring,” Saturday afternoon, June 29.

The Timmons Brothers both think this article captures the ambience and atmosphere of one of their “Rock n Roll Trivia Shows” in a creative and humorous, which signifies the core of the show – informative yet entertaining.  We certainly want to acknowledge the writer of the article (Fran Odyniec -former editor of The Madison Press).
