Rock n Soul

Rock n Soul’s band members changed slightly over the years, but when “old timers” remember the heydays, we remember this roster:
Phil May-guitar; Big Daddy Dave Williams-sax, keys, vocals; Tim Campbell-base, keys, vocals; Mike Bunch-drums; Donna Lamoureaux-vocals and sax, and Clark Barrios-vocals, sax and rhythm guitar. Rock n Soul’s versatility was on display every night in the Orchid Garden as they relived the rock n roll and street corner singing of the 50’s, Motown of the 60’s, 70’s disco and great songs from all decades.

In 1999, Church Street Station was sold for the umpteenth time and the new owner slashed budgets and entertainers – one from each band at Church Street Station. Shortly before one of the band members was let go, we were asked to record the band one last time for posterity. That night, guitar was played by Jeff DeHollander who joined the band several years prior when Phil May left the group. The songs linked to this post, are from that night.

Check out the video of Clark’s tribute to Elvis under LINKS.

Rock n Soul - Brown Eyed Girl

Recorded live in the Orchid Garden at Church Street Station in 1999, Brown Eyed Girl was one of the band's songs that bought lead singer Clark Barrios out in the audience to choose a young lady to help him on stage. Clark would always ask the father, spouse, or boyfriend of the young lady if he might borrow her for a moment and escort the young lady back to the stage where he hoped she would dance with him and sing along. Regardless, she would receive a complementary signature drink of Church Street Station - the Flaming Hurricane Special with the souvenir glass. This selection features the entire band, Clark Barrios, Donna Lamoureaux, Tim Campbell, Jeff DeHollander, Dave Williams, and Mike Bunch.

Rock n Soul - Walking in Memphis

Rock n Soul performed four sets each night beginning at 8 p.m. and ending at 1 around 2 a.m. The first set was the 50's, second the 60's, third and fourth were a mixture of 70's, 80's and 90's. By the last set, the crowds would thin out and the fans who has long ago become their friends usually made up a good part of the remaining audience. The band could have cut corners, played and sang some mediocre tunes to end the night, but they always seemed to have a special musical gift for those of us who closed the place.
Anyone who remembers them singing Seven Bridges Road or Walking in Memphis knows what I mean. I've never heard either of these songs done better and I doubt I ever will. Rock n Soul was Dave Williams, Clark Barrios, Donna Lamoureaux, Tim Campbell, Phil May, Jeff DeHollander, Mike Bunch.

Church Street Station . . . One Family Remembers

Church Street Station became an Orlando entertainment destination when Rosie O'Grady's Good Time Emporium opened it's doors in July 1974. Central Floridians and people from around the world enjoyed the music, laughter, food and fun that made CSS the stuff of memories. In July 2004, the 30th anniversary of the opening of Rosie's, an exhibit created by a Central Florida resident entitled "Church Street Station ... One Family Remembers," toured the Orange County Library System.
    The exhibit was featured in a two page color story in the Orlando Sentinel entitled: "When the party's over; Back in the day, Church Street Station was the place to be. Memories of its good times are on display at the Orlando Public Library." August 5, 2004, pg. H1. This is the flyer that accompanied the exhibit.
