POTTSTOWN — Oldies, Doo-Wop, whatever you want to call it, is still alive and kicking. Some folks refer to this music as “The Soundtrack of the Baby Boomer Lives.” Hall of Fame DJ Jerry Blavat used to call his dancers “Yon Teens” in the mid-60s. Now the same folks are Beyond Teens and still have the love for the music and memories.
On Saturday, May 18, the Davenport Performing Arts Center at Pottstown High School will be hosting a show that consists of eight acts including two sons of two Rock and Roll Pioneers (Hall of Fame Inductees), Bobby Wilson, son of Jackie Wilson and Billy Haley Jr. son of “Mr. Rock Around The Clock,” Bill Haley.
It happens to be a full moon night, see The Capris perform “There’s A Moon Out Tonight.” The Knockouts will be opening the show with their comedy routine and their great song “Darling Lorraine.” Staten Island favorite son, Vito Picone and The Elegants will create memories with their multi million selling hit “Little Star.”
You will be singing along to “You Were Mine” with The Fireflies. The Vogues, from Turtle Creek, Pa., will perform all of their great hits including “You’re The One,” “My Special Angel” and “Five O’Clock World” plus many more. Backing up Bobby Wilson will be New York’s Premier girl group, The Chiclettes, who will do their own set as well. The best band in the business, The Coda Band will provide the music and former WOGL Music Director Tommy McCarthy will emcee the event.
