Loufest 2017 was a blast! We had a great time, especially watching the “Hail! Hail! Chuck Berry” tribute and hearing Chuck Berry songs ring out across Forest Park.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to the great performers, musicians, festival organizers and volunteers and especially the great fans of St. Louis for such a fantastic event.
We look forward to the Loufest 2018 celebration!

In 1977, the Voyager Gold Record (containing Chuck Berry’s hit “Johnny B. Goode” was launched into space. In 1978, Saturday Night Live aired the "Next Week In Review" skit that had the psychic Cocuwa (played by Steve Martin) report the discovery of this record by these extraterrestrials. Their response? "Send More Chuck Berry.”
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Voyager and the Golden Record, we are proud to offer this new shirt and ultimate vinyl bundle. 40 years later, we all still need more Chuck Berry.

Another stellar review of Dads most recent album. The author goes out of his way to point out this release spans the gamutof dads styles of playing and vocal capabilities. Bob Lohr (piano player of extraordinary abilities) gets big props for his New Orleans style playing. We certainly like it and my mother will be very happy to read such a wonderful tribute.
