|Rich Clare Pentagon Band is a six-piece show band that plays rock 'n' roll
and R&B. Formed in 1971, the band showcases music from Wilson Picket,
Smash Mouth, Buddy Holly, U2 and much more.
In early 1971, Rich Clare asked long-time friend Jim Colestock to form what
would become Rich Clare Pentagon. During the 20 years Rich Clare
Pentagon traveled, they became a mainstay in the Atlantic City Casinos,
played Las Vegas, L.A. and Puerto Rico, and appeared on a Showtime
Special entitled "Steve Allen Live on the QE2."
In 1991, the band came off the road to call it farewell. At the 20th reunion
concert at Hershey park, the attendance was so amazing that Hershey
asked the band to return to perform every summer. The band now plays a
full schedule year-round including casinos, dances, fairs, fundraisers,
carnivals and more.
To this day the two original members Rich Clare and Jim Colestock still
perform with the band - and do it well!
