EDDIE AND THE PALACEADES is an all original rock and roll musical about a 60s era band from Waterbury, CT who opened for the Beatles on their 1966 American Tour then sacrificed their musical hopes and dreams to raise their kids.
Imagine a couple of guys from the T-Birds and a couple of girls from the Pink Ladies started a band, had a hit, appeared on Hullabaloo, American Bandstand and opened for the Beatles. Then the girls got pregnant and everybody moved back home to raise their kids and drop back into obscurity.
Eddie and The Palaceades opens 30 years later. The kids are grown. The band are empty-nesters on a mission to save the Palace Theater where they got their start and hoping for a chance to re-boot their musical career with Ringo's All-Starr Band.
