We were so sad this weekend to hear of the passing of Chuck Berry. He was 90. He was also one of the Fathers of Rock and Roll. We wouldn’t have the Stones, Beatles or a thousand other Classic Rock bands without Mr. Berry. He is Top 10 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of both Greatest Artists and Greatest Guitarists of all-time.

Chuck DID make it to Maine to play a show.  His one show in the Pine Tree State was May 5,1958 at the Lewiston Armory. Chuck was on the bill that night with Jerry Lee Lewis. What a show that must have been! We don’t have any footage from that exact show, but here’s Chuck ripping it up in 1958…the same year as the show in Lewiston:

The Armory has seen some amazing shows and events over the years, including Chuck Berry, Queen, Jimi Hendrix and of course the famous Ali-Liston Fight in May of 1965. Heavyweights all!
