Family band Rock n' Roll Hi Fives perform free in-store Thursday at Park Ave CDs


All in the family: The Rock N' Roll Hi Fives
  • All in the family: The Rock N' Roll Hi Fives

Rock & roll has a decent history of relatives like siblings or spouses playing together. For a million obvious reasons (and probably a billion less obvious ones), however, that list slows to a drip when you talk about about bands made up of nuclear families. But the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players showed us in the early 2000s how sweet - if fleeting - an ideal that can be. Well, New Jersey's Rock N’ Roll Hi Fives are here to resurrect that pure, cross-generational joy. And for Orlando and a small string of other select cities, they'll be doing it live on their first tour ever.

Conceived (ha, nailed it) by family patriarch Joe Centeno - who packs some cred as the guitarist in '90s indie rock band Plug Spark Sanjay - the Rock N' Roll Hi-Fives are 13-year-old daughter Eilee (lead vocals), 11-year-old son Evren (drums), dad (lead guitar) and mom Gloree (bass). Together, they kick out pretty righteous glammy power jams.

Rock & roll isn't generally family-friendly business, but the passion for it it's almost always a lovingly inherited torch. So this free, all-ages show at Orlando's preeminent independent music store, Park Ave CDs, is the perfect opportunity to seize that beautiful but very finite window to rock out with your kids. What better way to show 'em how it's done than up close and live?
