Rock and Roll Icon Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon to Perform at Eastside Cannery

Rock and roll icon Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon will keep the Sixties rock and roll spirit alive as he performs his classic hits at Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel Friday, March 27 and Saturday, March 28. The performance takes place each night at 8 p.m. at Marilyn’s Lounge inside Eastside Cannery Casino & Hotel. Admission is $5 at the door.

Freddy “Boom Boom” Cannon exploded into the rock and roll scene in 1959 when he released his first single “Tallahassee Lassie.” The single sold over a million copies and sent him on his way to a great career with hit after hit. He earned the nickname “Boom Boom” because of his driving beat, the “whoos” he would yell on his records and because his name was Cannon. In addition to his hits, Cannon is best known for appearing on Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand” for a record 110 times. The rock and roll legend continues to perform hundreds of concerts annually across the world.

Cannon will perform familiar songs such as “Palisades Park,” “Tallahassee Lassie,” “Where The Action Is,” “Abigail Beecher” and “Way Down Yonder in New Orleans.”
