The Classic Sounds of Doo Wop and Rock and Roll are Coming to The VETS
Tom Cruise's character Joel Goodsen from Risky Business isn't the only one who loves to "take those old records off the shelf." There are plenty of us who "like that old time rock and roll," and now you can hear it performed live by some of the biggest names from the heyday of the genre.
On Saturday, May 2, Richard Nader's Doo Wop and Rock & Roll All Stars return to The VETS in Providence to recreate the magic so many of us loved to jam to! Here's a rundown of what musicians you can expect to see at the show.
Shirley Alston Reeves is the American soul singer who used to lead the phenomenal girls group the Shirelles. If you don't remember her by name, I bet you'll remember her song, "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow."
The Legendary Teenagers had one of the biggest hits of 1956, "Why Do Fools Fall In Love." The group may not have left behind a large body of work, but they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.
Fans of Disney's The Lion King will surely remember the hit that made Jay Siegel's Tokens famous, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."
Charlie Thomas' Drifters became one of America's favorite rhythm and blues groups and was best known for the classic hits "Save the Last Dance for Me" and "On Broadway."
Last but not least, who can forget Tommy Mara and the Crests who brought us songs like "Sixteen Candles" and "Step by Step."
Sure, we may reserve dancing in our skivvies for our own living room (at least I hope so), but you can still enjoy rocking out to all these classic tunes of yesteryear at Richard Nader's Doo Wop and Rock & Roll All Stars at the VETS. Get your tickets now and I hope to see you at the show!
