|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 of the band Rich Clare and Jim Colestock still
perform with the band - and do it well!
