60 Years Ago Today – Bill Haley & Elvis Presley At Brooklyn High School

Bill Haley & Elvis Presley – October 20, 1955 – Brooklyn High School

60 years ago today in Northeast Ohio music history, one of the most famous concert that happened in the Cleveland area happened when Bill Haley And The Comets headlined at a special rock and roll concert at Brooklyn High School Gymnasium in Brooklyn Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland Ohio. This special concert for the students of Brooklyn HS was filmed for a documentary called the “Pied Piper of Cleveland” about DJ Bill Randle. This concert not only featured Bill Haley but also had Pat Boone, The Four Lads and a little known Sun Records Recording Artist named Elvis Presley!
