Rockers on Broadway, now in its 17th year, was founded by Kehr while appearing in the Broadway run of The Who's Tommy. He was inspired by Pete Townshend, who wanted the play's performers to experience the feeling of singing with a rock band in a concert-xtyle venue, and to transfer the rawness of that edge to the stage.
